The rear seats fold flat if you lift up the bottom cushion. It flips forward (on cars with the 60/40 split rear seat only).
You can enter Eco-mode, you press the right arrow on the left 5-way when you're on the average MPG display. It'll show you your current speed, anticipation, and shifting scores... get 5 green leaves in all three and you get the trophy.

That'd be awesome!

Automatic transmissions don't have the shift score if I am recalling correctly, and thus I don't know how to earn the trophy, lol. I'd like to know how to earn it though!

I have an auto...and I have been an "eco champion" a couple times. For the shifting, it would first say something like "see manual"...but depending on how you drive, you could earn a trophy and it will let you know.

correct. auto's don't have eco mode, that photo is from an automatic transmission (notice the shifter display).

earning the trophy seems to be pretty easy. i get them constantly, but you have to have the eco screen up for it to pop up i believe. i've never seen it pop up if i was watching mileage. the easiest way is to coast down a large/long hill, highway driving at a constant speed will get it too. it's much tougher in stop and go city traffic.

The one thing I miss is some type small storage cubby for coins. The small area where I rest my left foot should have something to prevent the carpet from getting worn out and dirty. I rigged something up myself.

i agree, the OEM mats (both carpeted and winter) are horrible and don't rise up high enough behind the pedals. maybe ford plans on selling you new ones in a few years. i replaced mine with hefty liners and they go way up that wall there, much better protection.

Yeah....not sure why they didn't put a left foot rest up there or something. First car in a long time that didn't have it.
