Lol. I've always sat in cars like I'm 5'0". Not sure why, but I feel most comfortable that way. I'm actually 5'10" and I have no problems reaching anything. I always put the seat lowest it can go, and the steering wheel in the CR-Z is as low as it can go, while pulled out 1/2 the way. One of these days I'll have to measure all of my settings.
I'm pretty sure it's a throw-back to my old race car in which I sat really close and barely had enough room to move anything besides my arms to the steering wheel and gear shift lever. People who ride with me complain constantly about how hard my car is to get in and out of, but then again most of them are wearing high heels.
