I commute an hour each way to/from work. In the summer (even with the AC on) I'm fairly cool but then I get out and my entire back is just covered in sweat. I think it's just me, though because I've always sweat a lot. I wish the Focus could get perforated leather or air conditioned seats like the Explorer.
If I can't get perforated leather or that fancy stuff (suede/Alcantara?) for my next car purchase, I'll go cloth.
