First post here. I love studying the auto industry and the Focus is a car ive researched alot. Im 6 4 and just did 1300 miles in a rented SE and found the seats very uncomfortable for my lower back. Things improved alot when I lowered the seat, unfortunately only figured it out on the last 100 miles or so. I thought right away the seat should be as comfortable as a VW Golf but it wasn't. Every Golf ive rented since 99 has been ultra comfortable. ( Always do long trips in them in Germany.) It wasn't even comfortable like my 93 Escort wagon now is. I don't think I'd want to be stuck with the MFT so no Titanium for me. Maybe if I do get the car I'll try the SE with leather. Has to be a hatch though. The wagon stays, and will be used for gigs instead of gigs and all driving ( 20,000 yearly.) Perhaps another rental trip with the seat lowered is in order . Leg room was not at all an issue.
