5-stars safety ratings for the 2009 Ford Flex | Rpmgo.com

In the most recent tests made by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the 2009 Ford Flex achieved impressive ratings, 5-stars, at the frontal and side-impact crash tests. The Flex, which went on sale this summer, is equipped with dual front air bags, headliner mounted side curtain air bags, four-wheel anti-lock brakes, Ford-exclusive AdvanceTrac with RSC (Roll Stability Control) and tire pressure monitoring system. Besides these features, the car gets extra safety from the use of lightweight aluminum-coated boron steel in the body structure and high-strength steel in the B-pillars.

“The 5-star ratings for the Flex are evidence of Ford’s overall safety commitment. In fact, we have produced more 5-star-rated vehicles than any other automaker,” said Susan Cischke, Ford’s senior vice president of Sustainability, Environment and Safety Engineering. “The Flex offers it all: a head-turning design, top safety ratings, unsurpassed highway fuel efficiency in its segment, power, spaciousness, comfort and great features.”
