    Okay, I've started the fire. You folks need to add the logs.

    That's an interesting place. Is that your garage? workshop?

    Yeah, it's both. I have a workshop in my garage. Sorry about all the mess, but I just wanted to show how much you can open all the doors inside a garage. As you can see, the falcon doors do not open enough to be useful.

    I was expecting to see video of the seats in a 5 seat configuration X covered with mud. Imagine how disappointed I was when all I saw were muddy tires...

    In this video, I show the good and bad about the 5-seater model X configuration.

    You can see the panels on their edge on top of the folded seats. The panels are very lightweight and strong.

    Do the 2nd row seats in the 5-seater recline?

    No, they are fixed in an upright position. Like a typical bench, back row seat.

    That's interesting, even if you pull and hold the latch you cannot lean it back a little?

    Anthony, you've tried to recline the bench seats? The manual makes reference to being able to recline as well as fold down. Quoting from Page 19:

    "While pulling and holding the lever, move the seatback to the desired position, then release the lever. When returning a seatback to its upright position, push and pull to ensure it is securely latched into position."

    On the photo 'Back Panels Removed", it looks like that deeper storage area (where you have the stroller?) has a ledge built into the rim of it that could receive a panel the same width as the rest of the lower floor. A panel at that location would also give you a full flat floor from the back to the bench seat. At delivery, did they say anything about that panel coming later?

    Someone else has showed pictures of them reclining, are you sure yours don't?

    Also, in the bottom of the section right behind the seats are there any tie down d-rings? (We have seen some with and some without, and we are wondering if the vertical piece in the front is covering them.)

    Looks very nice. A whole lot of space back there. Also, your 2nd row seat is supposed to recline. You use the same handle you use to fold them flat. Only the seats move back in the opposite direction. Each side is supposed to recline independently of the other.

    Ya they recline, buy pulling the lever back further an leaning back. And in a 2/3 - 1/3 style.

    In the 6 and 7 seater I thought the panel could go in either the upper position(on the little wings/tabs), or on the lower position right above the deeper storage area. Is the 5 seater different?

    I used to have 6 seater, now 5. Far back panel operates the same for both, with upper & lower positions possible.
    Larger middle panel is either in upper position as OP showed, or out altogether.

    That back floor panel doesn't lay even with the rest of the lower floor, does it? I thought there was about a 1 inch gap. Without the smaller panel I'm talking about, you don't get a flat floor on the lower setting. There's a small step up to that back floor panel. I hope you can tell me I'm wrong.
