#8 of 14 Passenger Legroom
Dec 22, 2011 (12:18 pm)
My issue is not with the drivers seat, but with the passenger seat. My 15 yo son is now 6'-2" and he cannot sit in the passeneger seat anymore without his knees hitting the dash. The seat has the telescoping slides underneath, but they have a block built in. Even though there is plenty of room behind the passenegr seat, it won't back any further. Anyone have any suggestions on how to adjust the seat or slides to get a few more inches of legroom in fornt?

You might find a mechanic or body shop or RV/conversion shop willing to move the tracks back, but there's liability and crash concerns with drilling new holes in the floor pan. And if your '07 has side air bags in the seat or sensors, that could be an issue too.
Could even have an auto upholstery shop rebuild the seat to remove some foam or see if a thin aftermarket seat would fit (Recaro is one brand I know of). Could have the same sensor/air bag issues.
