My wife and I are both relatively short. Is it possible to have the basic seat height increased?

the only thing that I would say is to hit the button on the side of the seat that moves it all the way up (vertically). Otherwise, sit on something.

I can't imagine you didn't try to raise the seat with the controller. I wouldn't try to do this on my own unless you are so mechanically inclined, but in prior cars my parents had used steel spacers between the seat and the rack to raise its height. That seemed to work well.

As badblkcts says, if sitting on your favorite pillow isn't your favorite choice, then about the only other alternative is to either raise the seat tracks via some custom spacers OR raise the seat itself (on the tracks), also via some type of spacers. Good luck!

Hi SC Rock,

Suggest that you ask if GM's product liability lawyers will allow your Cadillac dealer to raise the seat track assembly from the floorboard using spacers, or whatever, in a manner that will not void any aspect of your bumper-to-bumper warranty coverage. If your Cadillac dealer cannot do it for you, then I'd look for a booster cushion - just for example: http://www.airbagonoff.com/seat_cushion.htm.

I don't know how short you are, but if you do raise the seat (higher than max. seat adjustment will allow) you also need to be concerned about your feet reaching the pedals.

GM has a mobility program that assists with the cost of modifications needed to assist in the operation of the car. I wonder if there might be a solution for your concern. Check with the dealer to see how the program works.
