It's fairly easy to pull the seat bottoms out. You might have trouble folding the seats down though even without the headrests on. Im not that tall and in my seating position the seats just barely scrape by without me having to pull my seat forward.

Second that. I managed to fit a set of unmounted 18" wheels and tires in my hatch. I doubt I would have been able to do that with a trunk.

Sonic_HedgeHog My salesman had only been on the job for a couple weeks when I bought my car... I didn't really care that he didn't know much. He kept quiet when I was driving and asked the right questions to get me into a car.

e30og I HATE going to the Stealership and knowing waaaaay more about the car than the salespeople. Have yet to ever meet a salesman who knew what he was talking about

ttownvstrom They fold down nicely when you do it right.

moarmoto I've had mine for about a month, but haven't yet folded the backseats. I should try.

clogan You have no doubt figured it out by now, but the front seats must be slid somewhat forward in order to have room to flip the rear seat bottoms. For long-legged drivers, is a bit of a toss up as to whether to maximized leg room, and forsake the flat rear, or to sacrifice leg room in order to flip/flatten the rear seats. That's where the 60/40 rear really helps. The rear can be flipped on the passenger side, but not on the driver side, thus giving the tall driver the maximum leg room.

And by the way, our rear head rests have now taken up a permanent position on my garage shelf. Folding seats is easier, and rear visibility is no longer blocked. Of course, we rarely, if ever, have rear passengers, so that is not a concern.
