This one is not true of my car :
If you have leather seats, and DO NOT have 18" wheels, the rear seats will fold flat. Just lift the lower cushion up and fold the seat back down

I put an address into Mapquest and had it sent to my car. This way I don't have to enter it in. It is pretty cool. It is one of those addresses with a "-" in it. I don't know how to enter them. For example 19-3 Main Street. How do you say that? Well this way it bypasses it and enters it in the car thru Sync.

It mystifies me how the size of my wheels effects the way my seats fold.

18" wheels have a full size spare and that causes it not to fold flat.

Close, the foam block is thicker on cars with the full size spare (6") than the regular cars with the sony system (3") so when you fold the seat you get a 3" drop down from the trunk or hatch area to the seat back.

The thicker foam for the mft amplifier and the hatch mounted sub woofer might be at fault.

Subwoofer and Amp seem right......

^^^^^ This.

I just went out and compared the hatch and the Titanium Sedan. That's the deal there, the Subwoofer and the Amp, not just the spare tire space.

I was going to give my wife's car the full size spare for her hatch after I bought another 18" alloy wheel and Michelin Pilot 3 tire for mine, but there's not room in the well for it. My rotatable spare fits in my well just fine, however (without the little styro donut that the steelie spare had on top).

I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to get the car to beep when it is locked with the intelligent key by pressing the black button on the door handle. Right now it flashes the lights but in the daytime it is hard to see and it would really help to have an audible tone to confirm that it is locked. I want to make sure that I don't accidentally leave the car unlocked!
