Can the height of the driver's seat be raised higher than the power adjustment allows. I would hope that this could be done at the dealership. I would really like to get at least another two to three inches so that I can see the end of the hood on the passenger side. I'm only five foot six inches and I have to keep leaning to make sure I don't clip any cars when I'm parking. I could use a seat cushion but there goes the benefit of having heated seats.
Not sure I understand .... I'm 5'4" and I see fine.
It might be how he/she is sitting.
Some sitting with proper posture shouldn't have an issue. Could even be just ones sense of where corners of the vehicle is at, not everyone can pick up on it right away, some people need more time before it comes natural to them.
A lot of times it's because of the inexperience of judgment on averaging the vehicle as well. It's very rare you can see everything and averaging plays a huge role into driving a vehicle. A lot of times when it becomes difficult, you resort to thinking that you may not be tall enough at all for it or the seat isn't situated properly.
