2002 seat hinge question

Recommended Posts

It’s been some years since I had my ‘02, which was nearly stock. I’m sure the seats were as well, and if I recall correctly, the seat hinges forward to provide more clearance at the door side for entry to the rear. Rather common on lots of American cars from that era. 

Is my memory correct?  I’d seen many Recaros etc since then, but always liked that detail. 

was it ever changed for any model year?

While the seat back tips forward to allow back seat access on all 2002s, the seat cushion did not automatically slide forward when the seat back was tipped.    US 2002s have reclining front seat backs,  but 1600s were limited to three seatback angle adjustments.  But they all tipped forward.
