YTBrown Sorry for the bump... Can anyone confirm if the standard seat cushion really can be swapped with the fold-flat version? It's been mentioned previously that it is possible but I get the feeling nobody's done it yet. I'm a little wary too, because I imagine there are at least some hinges and clips or something that aren't on my version.

I got roped into a sedan and the non-fold-flat back seat hasn't been an issue 'till last night when I almost got burned at Home Depot (was still able to cram 12' of rolled rug!). I've come to terms with the 4-door but I think fold-flat would add a lot of versatility.

Deftmetal It is a sedan and I got the sport appearance package. I should put sedan in there

GhiaFan Deftmetal, this means you must have the sedan SE as I see in Canada the SE hatch comes with 60/40 split, but no dice on the SE sedan, unless
you add the 201A SE Plus Package which includes the 60/40 function. Which looks like last years Sport Package. With your profile saying your
Focus is an SE Sport this lead me to believe you had the 201A SE Plus Package.
Is there a reason why you list your car as a SE Sport? I am not aware of this trim level in Canada.

I am curious , when you take delivery of your new cars in North America does the selling salesperson not go over the features and how things function prior
to you driving off into the sunset in your new wheels?
Or is it that even the salespeople do not know these simple things such as how 60/40 seats work in a modern day car?
Sales people around here in my experience with new cars only tell about what a customer asks about. Most don't put in the effort at delivery. My rear seat is one piece folding. I was surprised the first time I went to fold it.

Perhaps Ford should fix it, since it's their dealership that messed it up.

But you're right. I should sell it. Of course, I'm not the kind of person to unload defective merchandise on people.... which is what my car is now, sadly.

It makes me feel like a pathetic loser when people ask why I haven't gotten that stuff fixed. My passengers say "If a dealership screwed up my car, I'd blahblahblah"... and I have to tell them "I guess I'm just Ford's bitch."

There's only two bolts per side.
