I'm too tall for my Ford Focus, can I lower the driver's seat?

Asked by Dec 21, 2015 at 09:25 PM about the Ford Focus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Have a 2009 Focus with manual seats with no height adjustment lever. I'm 6'4" and my head hits the roof when I sit in the driver's seat. Is there any modification I can make to reduce the height of the seat?

Sorry but that seat is as low as it goes. If you love the car you may be able to get a recaro or some other style racing seat to take its place. The newer st model has such an option.

Base cars don't have much seat adjustment. Buy a car with electric seats for height adjustment.

Time to trade up to a full size SUV or pickup.
