Hi - just picked up my 2016 Frontier King Cab, replaced a 2010 Frontier standard cab. Disappointed to find the driver seat (manual adjustment) does not move back enough to drive comfortably in the new King cab. Took a test drive but didn't feel the problem until I picked it up and drove for an hour.

Anyone ever move the seat ? Found this place Home Home they don't currently make a replacement track for the 2016 Frontier . They are in CA and if you drop your vehicle off and leave it with them for a few days they will use it to make the extender and give you one for free. I'm in NY. They will also manufacturer one on demand for a $1500 fee.

Anyone else having issues with leg room and want to contribute to the seat extender ?
After a day on the road my knees are killing me, $1500 is less expensive then a knee replacement .

Good day !

I had a 1981 Honda Accord that I bought new. I had the same problem. I got some 1/4" X 1" flat steel stock, cut me some 3-4" pieces and drilled hole in each end and bent them in a kind of snake type "S" shape so the back hole was elevated about 1/2" above the front hole (so the head of the bolt for the seat would fit above the seat tract). I took out the seat, bolted the extensions to the floor mounts and then the seat to the extensions with some 3/8X24 Grade 8 hardware. Problem solved.

The homemade extension is on the list however the seat extender replacement method is recommended by Nissan in terms of not compromising the safety features of the car, airbag effectiveness , position of seat-belt etc. Definitely need to do something soon.

How tall are you? I'm 6'1" and mine seems just fine. I know mine is a CC and you're a KC, - is there any difference in how far back the seats go? I usually drop mine back on long interstate stretches so I can extend my legs without a bend in the knee and haven't had any problems.

I just watched the video, it's really no different than what I did for $5 worth of hardware.
