i guess i drive funny [:I]. when i have the cruise set, i like to bend my legs; so my heels are right up against the front of the seat. so therefore that lever digs into my heel [:(]. i guess i could just put my foot on the dash [:p]

Or you could bring a little cushion with you on your trips to place against this when you drive - just might work for you. [:D]

Or you could just learn to drive like a normal person

Or you could remember that for every second that your car travels at 60 mph (about 100 km/hour) and you are not on the brakes, you travel 88 feet.....if it takes you one second to reach the brakes in emergency situation, you might be toast. Get a tape measure and go out and step it off. Then think how far INTO the gardrail or wall you would be.

cut it off and make a plastic adapter from homedepot for like $2.00 and only use the handel when u wanna move the seat.

Sounds like u drive like an idiot tho I tried it and it would take me way to long to get to my brake.

"Sounds like u drive like an idiot"



that's alittle harsh. i just read a post from you, and you were running over 80 mph, but that's not driving like an idiot? i bring my leg back when i'm on the highway and NO ONE is around. and never with other people in the car. it takes me 1 second longer to get to the brake.
sorry i brought it up, i thought i could get intelligent feed back: not name calling.
