    Does a market still exist for rear seats that recline all the way (as much as the front seats)? I would want them but I can't think of a car that has them anymore?? The Bentayga, Escalade, etc... don't have them, do you know which cars do?

    Would it be possible to modify the 6 seaters to recline all the way?

    The only car that I owned that had them was a Chrysler Town and Country mini-van built in the late 90's. My MDX 2004/2014 didn't have them.

    The 2nd row seats are great but not the best to sleep in compared to the front seats. And obviously the X has more leg room in the front and back compared to any other cars that I owned.

    How much do the front seats recline? Close to flat? Would love a pic!

    They recline about 160 degrees, I will post a picture.

    The second row seats (two captains chairs with ARM RESTS) in my old suburban reclined about that far. I believe the more recent models still recline that far but are power, not manual, now.

    Toyota Sienna Limited has middle seats that recline almost all the way. It helps it has a foot rest that extends out like a recliner sofa and makes it more comfortable than the fronts.
