Piston Slap: We NEED Questions! (And a Shafted Pacifica)
Folks, I need automotive queries for publication on Piston Slap, my inbox is almost empty! Email email@example.com so the TTAC community can help. And yes, ask anything except for car purchasing advise for aforementioned reasons. – SM
Sajeev, here’s the latest news regarding our Chrysler Pacifica: it is gone!
My son and his wife bought a Ford Flex, and my wife was so impressed with it that she wanted one. Since buying cars with her generally has been like pulling teeth, I quickly agreed and we took delivery of a 2017 Limited: cherry red, camel leather interior.
So her Chrysler Pacifica and its Chinese driveshaft has moved on (probably to the auction). It served us well and was a much better car than its reputation. Thanks again for your help; I enjoy reading your postings at TTAC, you’re the best!
PS: I still have my ’97 triple-black Town Car with only 167K miles on it. Panther love!
What a fantastic ending to an interesting query: the Flexes (Flexi?) are cool and will likely get cooler with age. But we also learned that longtime TTAC reader Stefan still has his fat-panther (i.e. 1995-1997) Town Car. Mark my word: the sight of a Fat Panther and a Flex in the same driveway will be pure internet clickbait 15-20 years from now.
Now please help us out by sending your automotive queries to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can return back to our normal(ish) programming.
Send your queries to email@example.com. Spare no details and ask for a speedy resolution if you’re in a hurry…but be realistic, and use your make/model specific forums instead of TTAC for more timely advice.
I believe it was a one year only option, at least from my limited research, but there is a Flex that came in teal with a silver top, just like the Land Ark. I see one every now and then and look longingly at it as it goes by. I would love to have one with EcoBoost and AWD. I don't think it came that way though.
We can't help but wonder if the Flex is named for what it does when you go over a railroad crossing...
sajeev, in this blog you will find answers, not questions
"My son and his wife bought a Ford Flex, and my wife was so impressed with it that she wanted one." I call BS, there isn't a woman alive who likes the Ford Flex. Are you really a Gay couple in disguise?
