Hi All,
It's only on the MK2 - not the MK1.
After the declining the cap is still 1-2 inches.
The privacy glass helps and may take care of the problem but Bottom line Ford didn't do a good job.
A black piece of cloth to cover the contains is not a 2013-solution :-(

I have a MK2 Kuga Titanium, 1,6 EcoBoost

maybe i'm missing something here, but how much of the boot  is actually visible thru this 1-2" gap surely if the tonneau cover is covering the rest of the boot, it will be dark and nothing could be seen inside, i have a Peugeot 1007 with adjustable rear seats and if in the forward position there's a 4-5" gap and to be totally honest although you can see in the boot, its very difficult to see exactly whats in it, and if you place the seats in the most backward position the gap is not there, surely putting the Kuga rear seats in the recline position will solve the problem? and if the passengers prefer the upright position who is going to look in the back when passengers are in the car or its driving along the road?

its not when you are driving along its when the car is parked up when you have exspensive tools in your boot when you have finished work it would be great to know that is not visible in any way.and away from prying eyes when you have orange plaslo guns and red hilti gun boxes any body who knows what they are wont think twice about breaking your window and having them away to sell for an easy fix

Photos will be posted. I have started to place a black piece of cloth over the stuff that I have in the trunk. It is visible If you have the above mentioned tolboxes in bright colors etc. Sorry but it is the facts.

I have notice this as well.
Though the Kuga is better in many ways than my old CRV, they solved the problem with slide out covers from the rear tonneu cover, which clipped to the headrest post on the rear seats.
Worked really well.

Hi there

is this not standard issue? My Kuga Mk2 Titanium (Oct 13) came with one of these fitted. Unfortunately, I had to take it out as I've fitted a dog travel gate / barrier behind the back seats, which rather precludes the use of this retractable cargo space cover.

Or have I misinterpreted the significance, and this actually does the job of the much-vaunted 'thingy'?

I have just joined the forum and to be truthful I think it is quite bad, when I viewed the car I wondered why I did not pick up on it then. The reason was I think the dealers now know the problem and they just flap the pull out cover over the back so you cannot see the gap and I just thought nothing of it. Is it a security sure it is when you have tool box,s in the car and paying for a titanium X and having this problem when I have tool box,s in the car. Privacy glass is no good ( not the one I have on mine anyhow) as in the daylight you can see through the gap. If I had know this it would most certainly swayed my decision in buying one in the first place. I am trying to send an email to ford about but cannot find an email address anywhere. So if anyone can send me an email address that would be great. I must admit other than that the car is good.

Not really happy with it.

my kuga has 8k on the clock, has anyone heard the front suspension noisey rattling noise going over ruff ground at slow speed, i get the feeling throw the steering wheel.

I have to agree with some of the comments so far ... If I had noticed the gap when I first looked at a MK2 i would not of bought one.

It looks like there is something missing and we should not be forced to recline the rear seats just to try and hide the horrendous gap.

Come on Ford, GET YOUR FINGER OUT OF YER A** and issue a fix.

Ford will know all about it and noticed it at design stage and though, 'so what'.
 
 
I'd read about this gap on this forum and of course looked at it on a test drive and while its terrible, I've come to accept 'some' of Fords cavalier attitude to design.

Not only is there a gap between seat and cover ( This I'm not to worried about ) What does annoy me is when the car hits a bump in the road the bloody cover shoots back. Not a good design.

Hi
Just picked up my new Kuga today (this is my second one) was dissapointed to see the space between the rear seats and luggage area cover which creates a security problem as when I carry my golf clubs in the car my golf insurance is invalidated as the clubs etc are not out of sight. In my 1st Kuga this was not the case as there was no gap therefore keeping everything out off sight. I think that Ford should offer a solution to this problem not ignore it  and hope the problem goes away.Dead

sorry mate but I don't see Ford to provide a solution. As you were looking for a new car and had your test drive, etc, YOU had all the time to discover the car and then YOU decided to buy that vehicle presented! Shocked

This gaps exists due to more space on the rear row. As you certainly have noticed the front and rear seats are not as thick as the ones the Kuga I had. Do you like to have money back because Ford saved material compared to the MKLI? Sorry but that's the same as you want a solution from Ford for the gap between the last row and the luggage cover. Confused

You certainly find the solution here in the forum that suits you the best.Wink

As some post before, another colleague said, the Spanish ClubKuga.org  has solved the Ford â€œcarelessness” whit a “Brico” (DIY).

This idea is not mine, but With this results in my case…

 I hope you like it…
