2013 Ford Focus ST: Yes, The Toilet Fits

September 10, 2013

2013 Ford Focus ST

Recently, my husband and I uninstalled a perfectly good toilet from one of the bathrooms in our new old house. As this perfectly good toilet was destined for another tour of duty, we decided to deliver it to the new owner using the long-term 2013 Ford Focus ST.

Let it be known that I'd shopvac'd the toilet and wiped it down before we loaded it into the Focus ST. Fitting it into the hatch was really no big deal at all. If we'd taken the extra step of separating the tank from the bowl, we wouldn't even have had to fold the rear seats.

This was yet another reminder that four-door hatchbacks are incredibly practical, though the Focus would be more useful if you got a flat cargo floor when you folded the rear seats. As it is, the folded seats are situated on a higher plane than the main cargo floor.
