Re: Ride height. Trouble seeing gauges. Help.

Agreed. I am a 6 foot male and after almost a year still cannot find the most comfortable driving position. This is my 4th GC and 6th Chrylser product and have never had this issue on any other car including those with much less limited seat adjustment. Other related issues - almost non-existent rest pad for the left foot , speedometer and tachometer very difficult to read during daylight given the dark red needles, and certain EVIC display messages so small that I need to put on reading glasses to read the odometer and certain other messages.
I like the car and I like the styling of the interior but find the interior to be not very user friendly. It is almost like they designed it and never tried out the interior under real world driving conditions. Very strange.

Re: Ride height. Trouble seeing gauges. Help.

Weird.

I'm 6'1" and I've had no problem finding a good seat position that allows me to:

A) Be comfortable
B) See the dashboard cluster and all of the gauges

I do agree with the comments about the speedometer being hard to see. That's one of the reasons I usually leave the EVIC set to show vehicle speed.

I was surprised to realize how far forward I had my drivers seat positioned. Since I have somewhat long legs, I usually have to place the seat almost all the way back in order to give myself some leg room. But on this vehicle, my seat only needs to be placed less than half way back.

I am short. My biggest problem is the rear-view mirrors, they are so big and block all the views in both corners. I wish there were stubby mirrors available for the jeep.

Guage cluster is poorly designed. Adjustable pedals could have been nicer.
