2. The seat should go back to the original position after someone exits the back seats. We have an Edge and it has two presets - one for her and one for me. It's so convenience.
Yup! that's another one for me too. My girlfriend keeps asking me who sat in "her" seat lol when I did was get something out of the back seat. That upper lever should just fold the seat all the way forward, and then all the way back to where ever the seat is set at via the regular handle on the bottom.
Where is this coin storage that you speak of? I must not have noticed in my GT
I definitely need something to store change in. Do you have a link to this ford accessory?
Open up the center console, its underneath the USB port, 4 (I think) little notches you can stack coins in, didn't try yet but it doesn't look like it holds much. I'm also interested in this ford accessory?
The only gripe i have that hasn't been mentioned here is at night the gauges glare in the windshield.I have no idea what you would do about this.If you dim the gauges it helps.It's a little distracting!
you know what, I had this same complaint when I first got the car. I've had it for about 3-4 weeks now and I don't even notice it anymore. My halos are blue.
I use one of the cup holders to hold loose change.
I actually just thought about this the other day as well I'm going to try it out. I don't understand why one cup holder is SO much deeper then the other one. Even with a large Tim Horton's coffee it still falls way to deep and you can barely get it out. When my girlfriend dropped the coffee down, the edges of the lid hit her fingers. I almost died because I thought the lid was coming right off!
Amen brother! Even when you don't use them the cover opens when you rest your arm on it. Oh well not too many options with the limited space in a sport coupe.
I noticed this too! I think if it opened the other way, towards the driver it would solve this problem. I naturally want to rest my arm more to the right of the center console but it cracks open the cup holders.
Vanity mirror lights (had them on my 93 Escort).
Glove compartment lacks room and a light.
No lights under the hood.
My wife complains about missing handles above the windows like my old Focus had. Go figure?
I agree with all your points except I guess for the handles, haha never needed those before. My vanity mirrors SUCK!! Gezz they feel SOO cheap, just a flimsy plastic cover. Apparently according to the manual there is an optional upgraded sun visor/mirror?
Nice thread Adblink!! For me, it's the STORAGE or lack thereof. We didn't even get what we were promised in the brochure. I'm not looking for Mini-van type storage, but at least a coin holder and an overhead compartment for sunglasses. Deeper door storage slots would be nice. They're pretty much unusable (except for velcroing in the garage door opener...which we should have anyway, according to the brochure)
Sun visors suck. Even the Kia Rio gets better visors!!!
BTW is it possible to remove those Air Bag warning labels off the visors? Sometimes I leave them down, then I look back on the car and realize how terrible those labels look.
Pretty much what everyone else has said I agree with. Lights for glovebox, hood and visor mirrors. Passenger grab bar would be nice.
Overall, it's an excellent cockpit. Very comfortable.
why thank you sir
You pretty much nailed it on the head for the things I missed but totally agree with. I'm sure there would of been room to put some small overhead compartment for storing at least sun glasses. Right now I'm using one of those visor clips and the glasses vibrate and make noise like crazy, pisses me off.
