If you have 18"wheels it will not fold flat. The spare is to big.

Anything with 60/40 split rear seats will fold flat. The only model that doesn't is the base S sedan I believe.

There is a 2-3 inch gap with the 18in spare.

To clarify, with a Ti hatchback that has the sport package (full size spare), the rear seats DO FOLD FLAT. They just aren't on the same plane as the floor of the hatch section because the hatch section floor is higher (because of the full size spare beneath). So, yes they are flat, but they aren't coplanar with the rear - they're parallel and slightly lower.

Not sure if it has been mentioned, but the USB input (in the Titanium at least) will charge my iPhone with the standard iPhone cord. I am glad I didn't have to buy a separate charger.

You mean the two grips on the inside of the hatch?
Because part of me is thinking something akin to an old school subway strap is what you are describing.

You don't need to wait for the engine to crank after you turn the key. Just twist and release. It fires up by itself.
