Is it me, or does it seem like the driver seat should be sitting a little lower? Even with the seat base back and down it still feels high. Any thoughts?

I too feel like I am sitting a little high in the seat but I wasn't sure if my girlfriend just moved the seat and I can't get it back to where it feels comfortable. I think that I have had it where I like it but everytime I do she drives the car and moves it.

Got to be a bit careful with the head, but its alot better than my TT was. I banged my head often enough to learn to keep it down. I would really like to have the seat go down another inch or two.

I'm definitely looking down, past the roof onto the road. For the first time in any car I've owned the ceiling is always in my line of sight. The seat does need to go lower.

I'm a medium-short guy at 5'7", yet every car I've ever driven I have the seat all the way, or nearly all the way back. I always wonder where tall people put their legs? ...and while not a point for me, why the manf doesn't design in more seat travel?

Yeah... wasn't prepared for the seat thing... had my oakleys just resting on my head, went to get out and broke them. But, luckily for me, I have another pair... :)

Still trying to get the right seat adjustment for comfort and shifting ease.

Practice... Practice... Practice...! :)

I'm 6'3", and I have no problems with the seat height. Its great. Way Way better than my T/A was, where I felt like I had to look through the roof. I have to duck to get in, but once in, there is a bunch of room, and I am looking out a "normal" part of the windshield.

I agree that the seat should be able to go about 1" to 2" lower.
I looked under there, and I don't see any way to lower the existing seat.

I have noticed the same thing. I'm just under 5'10" and have whacked my head a couple of times. It does seem that the seat should move down anothre inch or so. Interesting thing is like was stated earlier, once in, there's plenty of head room. It's just the getting in and out you have to be careful about.

Try this on for size....

I bought the car for my wife and everyday when I return home to take it out to run errands I feel like I need a charting degree just to align all coordinates to normal. It's horrible, but you learn to live with it when you come up to a light with a Honda Civic (3 tone I might add) and a fart pipe big enough to squeeze a watermelon in it. Oh yes how I suddenly forget about the seats.
