Yup, simple as that.

Cargo net hooks

Well i think i found something not listed in this thread!

My 2013 Hatch Se has 4 spots to hook a cargo net to under the fabric base which also includes 4 holes to pull the wire through!

Well maybe not a neat trick, but an interesting tip.

I rode in the back seat of my 13 Titanium Sedan for the first time yesterday (wife and mother in law in the front seats).

The back seats are softer and feel nicer than the front seats (to me anyway). I was quite comfy. Did not expect that.

That is interesting, and not something I've seen following this thread. Is that the factory cargo net you're using?

I will check at lunch to verify these attachment points exist in the 2012.

Thanks for posting that! I saw (and wondered about) the holes in the carpet, but I didn't think to look for anchors.

Thanks. I confirmed that the 2012 hatchback also has the anchor points.

I've read this thread from page 1 all the way to my post. I have to say it has been very interesting.

My tip: We all know when you turn the car off and take the key out, the radio continues to play until a door is opened. However, you can open the back doors (haven't tried the hatch) and the radio will continue to play. It seems it's only triggered by one of the front doors opening.

That's really cool, I didn't know that!

I was driving back to work and had been using the navigation, I cancelled the trip before I got there as I did not need it any longer. The navigation screen was still displayed.

Shortly there after that my low fuel light came on and I head the warning chime.

I looked at the navigation screen and it had automatically populated the map display with little blue gas pump icons showing all of the available nearby gas stations.
