Re: Pedals not aligned with seat and steering wheel

Funny, I did wonder how they would be in a right hand drive where the pedals would not have to be jammed up close to the transmission tunnel. Having grown up in the UK but lived most of my adult life in USA, I still miss right hand drive cars!

Overall, I much prefer my V8 Jeep over the wife's Sorento even though her pedals are perfectly placed!
I hadn't really paid attention to it until this topic came up. Driving a '14 compared to a '95 did take a bit of time getting used to, where I had blamed it on the "plush pillow" seats of the '95. Measured it and sure enough...

Having driven more than a few sports cars, with really really ugly pedal placement, seems like a nit to me. On longer drives in open territory, I tend to use cruise anyway so I can rest my feet/legs a bit. ..and avoid tickets.

Re: Pedals not aligned with seat and steering wheel

Methinks the pedal placement is designed keeping two footers in mind. I do not like using cruise control because I am afraid that i might fall asleep at the wheel.

Re: Pedals not aligned with seat and steering wheel

So drive with your middle leg on the pedals.

Re: Pedals not aligned with seat and steering wheel

Yeah, I've noticed it and it bothers me every once in awhile. But, with 27,000 miles on my vehicle in 1 year, it doesn't bother me that much.
