Most cars that use a pull lever/lean back system to adjust the seat rake have it a little more accessible (typically right where your hand would drop down) than what you see here in the Cruze. This awkward, too far rearward lever placement reminds me of VW's old spin knob recliner which was similarly located back at the seatback/seat cushion intersection.

Maybe it's just me; unfortunately I'm not double jointed. Or maybe the same guy that designed the Camaro's steering wheel drafted this up...
