I am opening a discussion again that was posted two years ago. Only, I am shortening the topic, so to speak.
It was previously posted by someone about 5’1". I am 4’10.5" inches (having shrunk in last few years) and am finding it nearly
impossible to find a car because of my visual, leg length, and safe distance from steering wheel (7-10 inches) requirements.
I also hope to get a decent mileage of 23+ in city because I am Green (no, I am not Kermit, the frog).
All new cars slope in back for aerodynamics and fuel economy, which makes vision really hard for me.
I currently own a Honda Accord 1994 (over 200,000 miles) that is about ready to drop its transmission on the
next highway drive, so I need something soon, or I need to put $5,000 into a car that is probably worth $2,000.
However, this car fits the bill in every way for me, except maybe 4WD for a few nasty winter days in Washington state (west side).
I have considered the pedal extenders, and yet hate to go that way.
I found the Lexus 450H fit my needs, but not my wallet.
The previous writer decided a RAV4 Limited was right for her. It does not quite do it for me - maybe newer model is not so good and I should
look at a used one.
