Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I've been really pleased with my Auris and was interested in the new model. Big problem though.

My wife is 5ft 2ins and with the drivers seat adjusted so that she can use the pedals and see over the dash her left knee catches on the steering column shroud. This makes releasing the clutch dangerous and bruises her knee. No amount of fiddling with the steering column and seat adjustment can solve the problem. It seems there is a design issue here. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

The Auris isn't alone with this type of issue - our second car, a 2012 Hyundai i20 has the same problem for driver's below approx. 5ft 4. I'm 5ft 6 and like the seat on a high setting. On the i20 I have to have the seat partway to prevent my left knee touching the lower part of the dash when operating the clutch. No issue with my right knee.
