When I sit in the driver's seat of my new 2012 SRX...I adjust the seat, steering wheel, and pedals for my maximum comfort. I am 6' tall and weigh 230 lbs. I am comfortable but the seating position seems kinda low. The side of the vehicle seems higher than my previous SUV. I couldnt open the window and rest my arm on top of the door. Does anyone else notice this? But the bigger problem for me is...I cannot see the hood of the vehicle. It makes driving a bit uncomfortable since I am used to seeing the hood of the vehicle. I feel like I am driving kinda blind. Even if I move the seat to its highest position, I still cant see much of the vehicle hood. Has anyone else noticed this? Is it a problem for anyone? Is it just something I have to get used to? Thank you for your reply.
