Has anyone noticed car seats have gotten shorter in recent years? I find sitting for any length of time causes my legs to fall asleep:crying2: . I have been looking for a solution, maybe sheepskin seat cover, not sure. Anyone have a similar problem and or a solution?

I have this problem too. Particularly when i drive my Rover 114, my wife's Astra, My dads Vectra (mine has additional support) or in the Escalade. I find that putting a cushion in front of the seat (standing vertically against the front of the base) works for me.

I have been looking around the web for solutions without much success. I am wondering if the DTS buckets would bolt up. I have actually considered dumping the STS for the DTS but really don't want to take the 9 grand hit it would cost me to do that. Anyone think changing seats is crazy? Maybe a custom upholstry shop could extend the seat?

These would help you a lot but maybe another color?

What I would really like to do is get an old school Caddy seat in there. I always liked the old ones. This isn't just a Caddy thing either I notice in rentals I have been in all the seats seem short. I want a rolling sofa.

What about Captain seats out of a van? You might lose your console.

The thought did cross my mind but I just emailed a custom auto upholstry shop asking if they can lengthen the seat a few inches.

I've noticed that about seats lately. My fiance didn't care for the Caddies seats because they are so long and she was short, so her feet barely touched. She had to put the seat down a ways to be comfortable LOL.
