I loved Fords, but always had transmission issues with relatively low milage. Years ago when I worked part time for a major rental car company, I got my taste of Ford, Chevy, Dodge, etc. the only cars we had that were reliable were the Toyotas, Nissans, Suburus, Volvos...after working for a large city that has a sizable fleet and seeing the same quality issues with the American leading brands, I felt that my experience with Nissan products was exceptional. I'm hopeful we will have the same good luck with our JX. It is nice that the car was built by American workers. Oh, by the way, the Flex should not be classified as a luxury car. It is nice, but no thanks.
