The lower portion of the seat is tons more comfortable than the stock Escort one, at least the stock Pony one.
I like the MX-3 rear seat because it essentially turns your car into a pseudo 2+2 by eliminating the centre occupant area.
I wish the upright portion had indentations just like the bottom does to make them feel even more like bucket seats.
But yeah, as stated, they do fit. There is a little extra gap on either side since the MX-3 is narrower inside than the Escort. But it's hardly noticeable. You do have to grab the little retention clips out of the MX-3 and install them into your floor pan.
good thing i read that little note about the retention clips before i ran to the yard... :lol: thanks nezwick. the gap i can live with... and the whole reason i was going to nab it was because of that "2+2" factor. it just looks more comfy let alone... lol
