Uncomfortable Driver's Seat
I've developed a pain in my right (driving) leg that starts where my right cheek (trying to be appropriate here) meets the seat and radiates down my leg, and caused pain against the top of my foot when I push down on the gas pedal. Thinking back, it started about the time that we bought the Compass. At one time, my chiropractor said it probably was an isheal bursa. Well, it's gotten better, but seems to bother me most after I've worked a 12 hr shift, and am tired (during my 12 hr shift I am on my feet the first 4 hrs, then have 4 hrs of quiet/sitting time and then anthor 4 hours of time on my feet). Sometimes it hurt so much on my drive home, that I wondered if I could make it home.
I have just the basic seats, you can adjust the distance from the steering wheel further and closer, and you can adjust the back of the seat. Well, I tried any combinations of positions, to no avail.
I'm 5'8", not short for a woman. I find that my knee does not extend past the seat itself, it hits the seat. So I bought a gel cushion (at Walmart for $20.00) and that seemed to help fairly well, but I still would get some pain. So I also bought a back cushion, and that has helped significantly putting the bend in my knee a little further up.
I love my Compass, and would hate to have to trade it in to get a vehicle with a more comfortable seat.
