2012 Nissan Quest LE: Small Request

The pull-straps on the backs of our 2012 Nissan Quest's 60/40 third-row seat don't get as much use as in other minivans -- because our LE model has a power-fold feature (which we demo'd in a video) that does most of the manual labor for you.

The straps are a little longer than most straps of this variety, and for whatever reason, Nissan omitted the usual bits of velcro on the straps and the seat-backs to keep them secure when they're not in use.

It's a little thing, and I'm sure said velcro (as seen in our departed 2011 Sienna and 2011 Odyssey) would eventually cease to be sticky, but for the first 50,000 miles of the van's service life, it would save you the small hassle of fishing around in the cracks for wayward straps.
