Hope your holiday weekend is going well.
It’s beautiful here, and I’m doing a traditional American thing: going out to test drive cars. I’m in the market for a new one, having decided that my 1998 Totyota Corolla is a bit too small and a bit too uncomfortable for my compromised back.
I’m looking at cars that are a little bit bigger and heavier, with seats that are a little bit taller and more chair-like and have a tilt mechanism for the part you actually sit on. I’ve narrowed it down so far to the Scion xB and the Kia Soul, two cars I’d never even heard of till a couple of weeks ago. Anybody here got any advice?
[ADDENDUM: Looking at the comments I see that I probably should have explained that I've already tried (that is, sat in) at least 20 different types of car, including the newer Corollas. I have a very bad back and almost all cars are very uncomfortable for me, and I generally need to use a cushion or two to make them more comfy. I've discovered, however, that the higher-up seats of the Scion xB and certain other cars seem to be better for me, especially because they have a tilt mechanism for the bottom of the seat. That's something I'm looking for, so if a car doesn't have that option I'm not considering it.]
