Hi Jill:
82 inches is just a shade under 6ft 10 inches so if a tall friend can lie in the back with a lunch box between his feet and the back of the seats, probably.
The other worry is will it fit through the door.
Measure height and depth and check against the door.

If you don't have a tape available, you can use a broom handle and a marker pen to get the sizes..

You have a damaged drive gear in the seat, the parts are no longer sold for this ol of a model so your best bet is to try and locate a used one.

Not enough adjustment front drivers seat

First thing I'd do is go to any used car lot and sit in a similar vehicle. at 6'3" you are not excessively tall but that depends on how much of you is leg...sounds funny but people are not exactly the same. If that one is comfortable, check to make sure there is nothing caught in the track for your seat, and that it is going back as much as the one you tested.
If both vehicles are the same, you can remove the seat from the floor and re-locate the seat back a few inches. On many vehicles, at least two of the bolts may go directly into the top of the frame. You will need to tap new threads into those holes. I also recommend that you use a large (2"-3") washer on the bottom side of the others to prevent the bolt from pulling through in an accident. Track repairs if necessary on your seat are generally difficult and expensive unless you find something that case you can replace the entire seat with one from a scrapyard. If you don't have an unusual color, they are fairly easy to match.

1997 lincoln town car..pas. seat goes foward but wont go bakwards...any help

Try pushing back as you work the switch forward and backward. The most likely problem is a stuck runner. Remove the two front bolts and the two rear nuts from the seat legs and tilt the seat backwards to clean and lubricate the runners

I'm thinking of buying a 1995 toyota 4 runner for my son who is 6ft 7in. The manual adjustment for the driver side seat does not go back far enough. Is there a fix for this?

i'm 6-1 and i have trouble fitting in there. you would need to get the seat tracks customized, but if you do please do it right and have a reputable shop do the work. i believe there may be retro fits available for this.

My front seat will not move forward. It will recline, move up and down but it will not move forward. I've tried reseting the seat positions but nothing seems to work. my seat wont move forward is there a...

You can move the drivers seat back by turning on the power, getting in the seat and position your feet firmly on the fron flor with your back firmly against he seatback, and then engage the switch pushing back - while pushing like hell with your feet. You can actually hear the seat drive shaft turning while the seat moves back. The principle should be the same for moving forward, but pressure would have to be aplide to the back of the seat.

Driver's seat unable to move forward or backward

There are plastic gears connecting the track to the seat assembly. Whne one of these strip the seat will only work or move to one side. Infiniti does not sell a simple fix. You are looking at buying an entire seat assembly complete with the module for all the electronics. It will be at a cost of around $950 - $1000. Once that is in, Infiniti must program the seat to the brain of the car, only then can you reset your memory settings.
