Ask Jack: A Real Pain In the RS?

A small car with a growing family doesn’t always make sense. The Focus RS is one of those cars that though small can still work but you have to be aware of the limitations and maybe make it the 2nd car. The work car, not the Honda Odyssey people mover that typically works with bigger families. At the end of the day, keep it as long as you can until it gets to small to function properly.

Key Takeaways:

  • A slightly wider rear bench won’t make much difference.
  • The best vehicle I can recommend is a used Ford Flex Ecoboost.
  • What you really need is a third row.
