Sedans with leather will also have the 60/40 rear and fold flat.

Ooooh the joys of leather. My Saturn Aura has leather..not a fan, other than the heated leather in the winter. 99 percent of the time its just a pain though.

Elizabeth The seat bottoms hinge at the front of the seat. The seat cushion has to be pulled up HARD. (especially the first time) The seat bottoms DO stick up against the backs of the front seats.. They do not vanish..
Reach down between the seat back and bottom. Grab the seat bottom and PULL UP. it will come loose from the clip holding it down.
Once you 'get it' it is easier to do.
The two parts 2/5 and 3/5 of the seat bottom are separate. The 3/5 is on the driver side. The 2/5 is the passenger side.
And you can do just one side if you want. Like have a passeger in back AND carry something long.. nice.

If the front seats are too far back, it may be hard to fold the backs of the rear (as the bottom cushions pressing against the bask of the front seats block the rear seat backs from getting past.. (move the front seat forward a bit to get the backs down, then you can move the front seats back some again)

The folding rear seats are really handy. So understanding how they move lets you take full advantage of the space.

flipfloparoo182 Is there a lever or anything for the bottom part?
12-18-2014 05:28 PM
mikesusz fold the bottom forward first, then the back down. my Ti even has a 60/40 split of both parts!
12-18-2014 05:26 PM
flipfloparoo182 So how do the rear seats fold down flat? I get how the back folds down but what about the actual seat part?
12-18-2014 04:03 PM
mikesusz something i learned from an Escape forum - when you're browsing by alphabet like in USB, the "G-L" button for example, tap it once it goes to G, tap it again it goes to H, tap it again it goes to I...

not sure why i never thought to do that.
