Front seats extremely painful
By Nancy on


2006 Toyota Corolla S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


The seat is hard and made in 2 lumps. The one at the back is where upper truck puts all weight in one spot on buttocks causing pain and numbness of the entire leg. The lump in the front tips upward and presses on the pressure point of artery on the back of the leg. The foot rest keeps prevents the leg from having any place to strech the leg that is numb and tingling from the pain caused from the seat. The footrest is so high that if the leg is somewhat in a less painful position, you cannot reach the clutch engagement point. The lower section of the dash is so low your the shin bone hits it when engaging the clutch or trying to move leg from bent position forced by footrest.

Best Features

Windows roll down when the key is not in the car. Cruise control Outdoor temperature display. Nice large trunk. Back seats roomy for taller people. Husband thinks it has a good resale value.

Worst Features

Seat need to support entire thigh. Have some lumbar support. Make the footrest lower. More room between footrest and clutch. Lower portion of dash cover raised for more leg room. A bumper that does not dent easily. Back seats that are easy to cover with a blanket.
