2010 VW GTI: Driver/Steering Column Interference
March 29, 2010
Here's a problem my 5-foot, 4-inch wife ran into (literally) with the GTI today. With the seat adjusted properly for the rest of her body, her knees hit the steering column. The issue, she says, is that the seat bottom is lower at the back than at the front and isn't adjustable for angle. Naturally, she sits high and forward to properly reach the pedals and wheel.
She doesn't drive in those shoes. Relax.
