I seem to remember reading somewhere that the 2002 has coat hooks for the second row, in addition to those for the third row like the 2001's. Can someone with a 2002 confirm this and give an evaluation if they're adaptable/installable on a 2001?

Also, does the 2002 have a grab handle above the door opening, similar to those over the front doors? If so, does it look usable on 2001?

Many thanks in advance,
Mel

Yes, there are 3rd Row coat hooks in the 2002. I don't see how you could "install" them in another model year.

Yes, grab handles on 2002 in 2nd row at slide door entrances. I suppose you could install these (assuming you can get the parts) into a previous model year, but it seems there is a recessed area that makes them look relatively nice in their folded position. I have some doubts it could be done well as a retrofit in a previous model year, though less doubt on the handle than on the coat hook.

R,

Talk about quick responses...

Are there coat hooks in the SECOND row? 2001's have hooks in the third row, too, but I find it quite inconvenient to use.

Thanks,
Mel

Yes, there are coat hooks in the second row as well for 2002.

I like the grab handles. They're sprung so as to stay up and out of the way. And when you use them and then release them, they swing back up VERY nice and easy, slowly, like--well, like you'd expect from an Acura.

The coat hooks are also very nicely integrated into the grab handles, and they swing down and lock independent of the grab handles when you need them and swing up and stay with the grab handles when you don't need them.. Overall, the whole system is a luxury touch.

I know this is an older thread - just wondering - has anyone upgraded a pre-02 with these hooks/handles for the second row?
