Kevastator Well I am coming from an extended-cab ford truck, so I think I have prepared my friends well for a lack of legroom in the backseat LOL

I'm 6'5" and have no issues getting comfy in the focus or fiesta. In fact, I don't even have my seat all the way back in the focus. Just make sure you lower the seat bottom all the way and you're all set. I have a 34" inseam fwiw.

No way in hell a 6' person is sitting behind me comfortably though, sorry. There's no more than 4" of legroom. Even my 6 year old didn't want to squeeze in behind me.

GhiaFan I find the rear cabin space in the MK3 very comfortable, and I am just a hair under 6',
I suppose if I had to sit behind a 7 footer things would get a little squashed, but I think most compacts with a 7 footer in front would make for a tight fit in the rear cabin

I have to agree. My girl has a '11 4DR SE and I had thought it was smaller in the back compared to my hatch.

novus I picked mine up w/ 37k mi for $16.5k. It was a rental. I was sketched out at first, but gave it a very VERY good look over. KBB has it pegged at a tad under $18K. It's almost fully loaded, just some features not there. MFT and Parking Assist. I'm assuming those were Titanium features. One thing I wish I had was heated seats & remote start. But no problems so far *knock on wood*. Loving it so far. Couldn't be happier.

Ended up driving off with the sedan even though I was dead-set against, of all things, 4dr and Kona blue. Buttery shifts, sunroof, cruise and sync sold me. Couldn't be happier so far. Coming from a Scion XD it feels like a beamer! Surprisingly, it wasn't a rental but also had ~34,000 on it. Even gets about the same, if not better mpg than that tiny molar rattler! Blue is starting to grow on me too.
amen, congrats! wax well, protect that paint!

lol my R6 hums along on the highway at around 5000rpm. Then again the redline is 16.5krpm
