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?

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.
