I have mine set to red but when a door is opened they turn blue.

Yup, that's it. I just had an SE as a loaner so I see the difference now.

It upsets me that there are so few cubbies in the front, but so many in the rear seats. I need a place to put all my crap and I've ended up just keeping it in my pockets or cramming in the arm rest storage. If I have a passenger and we both have drinks, I can't use the cup holder so if I have to throw my phone in the door handle. At least I can't forget it that way...

I like that the rear defroster has an dedicated element under the rear wiper (hatch). Should prevent it freezing to the window. Haven't needed it yet, but winter is on the way.

Not sure if it's been mentioned, but the nav only gives the options of speaking directions out, or tones/chimes only. But, if you toggle the "mute" icon, it will be silent for good, unless some day you untoggle it.

It's nice now to have it be quiet, and stay quiet, even on new trips :)

I enjoy the fuse puller built into the cap of the fuse box under the hood when my MFT freezes.

ran a wire to the aux in ...salesperson said it was behind the dash or something and gave me a reference to a local audio shop....then I found this thread and you all already knew where to look.

WHAAATT??

Where is this magical fuse-puller you're talking about? I've resorted to keeping a small pair of needlenose pliers in my desk...which only barely do the job.



As for the people that always talk about places to put their phones...where do you keep it when you're outside of your car? I'd assume your pocket. Now: Why do you take it *out* of your pocket? As far as phone calls go the MyFord Touch system handles them all perfectly. For anything else, you shouldn't be doing it while driving anyway. If I rode in your car when you started doing something with your phone I'd throw it out the window and possibly smack you across your face.

I'm impressed. After all, it's so rare to find ignorance and unfounded assumptions backed up by threats of property damage and physical violence on the internet these days...
