Just picking up my new 2002 MDX today!

The only thing I wasn't crazy about on my test drive this weekend was the leg room. I'm 6'4", so am used to having a hard time in any car, but I'd really appreciate another 1.5-2" in this one to let my legs unbend some more...

So, I did some looking under the seat, and while it doesn't look as if moving the entire seat mount is practical (the floor countour seems to match where the seat mount attaches), perhaps the electric tracks could be relocated where they bolt to the bottom mount. Does this sound plausible? Anybody try it?

Note that I'm planning to install a CHA-S634 CD changer under the driver's seat, if this matters.

Thanks!

I am in the same situation as you. I also looked under the seat and felt that one could drill new holes in the seat tracks and move them back about 3". I would make the car harder for a munchken to drive but then we don't any munchkens out our house.:D

PS I did not try it but would love to hear if you or anyone else does.

Great idea, I'm going to try it when I get mine. 1 inch of additional leg room can make a world of difference.

Well, the Acura service manager says it's all one assembly and
couldn't be taken apart and re-bolted together this way, but I'm
going to poke around with a local seating specialist anyway.

In the meantime, I found some relief rotating the bottom of the
seat up to get some thigh support, but it could still be better.

Sure it's all one. I was advocating that by drilling new holes you could mount the entire unit 3" back.
