Driver seat legroom

2 posts in this topic

Hello,

 

   I just purchased a 2019 spark and so far so good. I just retired and did not have much money to spend but did not trust a used vehicle. After a $2000 rebate and $4000 offered for my trade. The car cost me $8900 dollars.

 

   My only concern was limited driver legroom. I am 6 foot 1 and wanted the seat to go back more. After giving the problem some thought I fabricated some seat extender rails from steel bars.

 

   After installing the rails and placing the seat back in the car. I was pleased to see the seat moved back over 3 inches. Now I have all the room I need.

 

   Just wanted to share this with other members in this forum. Hope someone will find this info useful.

I am guessing you won't have a passenger with any legs in the seat behind you.:lol:.

I too am the opposite of the usual demographic, 66 yo male bought the car initially because it fit in the back of my toyhauler. I no longer have that requirement, I just like the car, it's economy, comfort and stability, for a small car. I intend to have it for a long time.
