Great Car Unless you are over 5'11"

2007 Honda Accord Special Edition 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
Review
When test driving, this car was exactly what I wanted. Very reliable (I had a Volvo that cost thousands of dollars a month in repairs), nice looking, safe. I planned on driving it forever. I am about 6'2" and it is clear after driving this car for 3 months that it is NOT designed to be comfortable for people over 5'11". When I drive the back of my leg is raised off the seat and requires me keep my leg elevated. I have tried every seat position and steering wheel adjustment and nothing works. Also, the brake pedal is in front of the gas pedal and requires me to lift my leg to move from one pedal to the other. This combination is extremely uncomfortable for tall drivers.
Favorite Features
Honda reliability. Its simplicity. What you get for the value. Love this car except for the driving comfort.
Suggested Improvements
Design cars for tall people! Make sure the back of the leg rests on the seat. I will look at the accord in the future, but this will walk out of the dealership if this isn't fixed.

Agree the seat comfort is a big disappointment. I am 6"0" and cannot get comfortable on trips over 45 minutes.
