Not enough headroom

Asked by Jan 19, 2016 at 05:07 PM about the 2012 Chevrolet Malibu LS

Question type: Car Customization

My torso is too tall when getting into my 4-Dr 2012 Malibu sedan. It has manual seats. It there anything I can do to lower the seats? Would electric seats solve this problem? I'd consider any options, even getting rid of the Malibu if I have to.

Power seats might if they have an up or down adjustment, and then there is the wiring issue, but no guarantees. You might be looking at another vehicle like you said.

I'm 6'7''. about the only thing I fit in is Suburban's, Chevy pickups, Ford trucks, and my old '89 Caprice. I need power seats in all of them to adjust for headroom and legroom. I would never fit in that Malibu power seats or not. I probably would not even be able to drive it at all. The Chevy Impala I could drive but it wouldn't be comfortable enough on a long trip. It has fairly good head and leg room. I don't fit in Ford's large sedans at all. It's expensive to be tall!

The newer Chevy Impalas I meant to say.

Remove the seat from the car and see if the seat mounts can be modified to lower it. You might gain an inch or two. For safety make sure any mods are professional done.
