I have just last month bought a pre-owned 2019 leaf. 40KW tenkan. Its a great car. But i can not get a comfortable, seated position. If the drivers seat is moved back, my arms are too far away, but legs are fine. If i am closer, then the wheel is so low down (even raised to the max) then the steering wheel is nearly touching my legs. I am 5, 10. I have spent one month, and several cushions, but then cannot get comfy. As a back suffer and undergone over 4 lumber surgery a decade ago, i am really starting to get my sciatica and lower back pain returning frequently. This is such a pity, as the automatic nature of AV and one peddle driving is a huge aid to those of use who have spine pain.
Its so bad, I may have to think about selling, which will be huge financial loss.
This car has the manual seat adjustment, and I wonder do the Electric seats offer more movements? All my EV testing was in the Zoe was great, but that had a telescoping steering wheel, as did my old ford Galaxy. Any tips anyone? Have anyone suffered the same problems, as there seems limited messages on this here, and I would love a soluation. I wonder if its related to me only, given I have undergone multiple L3/4 surgies, and would be keen to know if others suffers have solved this. Thanks
