Ford covers the 2012 Flex with a three-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. Compared with other three-row crossovers, that’s about average. The Toyota Highlander is covered for the same amount of time and mileage as the Flex, and while the Chevrolet Traverse comes with a five-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, it doesn’t have a bumper-to-bumper warranty or its equivalent. Overall, J.D. Power gives Ford an Overall Quality rating of three out of five, or “About Average.”
