I own a 2012 Grand Caravan, and I never noticed anything different about the pedal. When I read your comment about the brake being closer than the gas, I thought I would check my Odyssey- it's set up the same way. Also, regarding the shift knob, it is located in the same spot on many of these minivans. The head rests are a bit large, but I don't think they are a major factor. There is a model available with backup camera.Report it
The pedal height hasn't been a problem for me but because I am short and the extremely LIMITED foot room in the driver's side cockpit I find it very difficult to disengage the emergency brake without a handle. I had the majority of the seats removed from my vehicle for wheelchair access and the visibility is still poor. That is why I believe back up cameras and blind spot monitors should come as standard equipment. I read somewhere that the government is going to require this in 2014 because so many kids are being run over to go with the seat belts, ABS and air bags.Report it
Rear seat head rests can be folded down. SXT should have adjustable pedals as well. Do you really own this car? Doubtful.Report it
Well, you are right about position/height of brake pedal. It is a little bit higher than I would like also. Although, speaking about ergonomics, pressing brake pedal requires much more foot force than pressing gas pedal. Therefore, by moving it closer to the drivers foot, it requires less foot movement. Imagine, you have to press brake pedal in emergency. Do you think that it would be OK for your foot to move so much that your body slides from the seat?Report it
