Driver's Seat sitting too low.

So, here's my issue.

I have a 2010 1.8L Versa HB. My wife wants to drive the car, which isn't a big deal for me. Only issue is, the seat doesn't raise/lower, so when she drives she can't see over the dash board.

Anyone got any ideas I could use to make the seat sit higher so she could drive the car?

Any help would be appreciated.

My wife is petite so she uses a cushion and puts the seat all the way forward to reach the pedals. This setup has worked for her for over 25 years of driving.

Just find a cushion or pillow that works. I have one of those cushions you would take to a stadium to sit on to watch a football or baseball game with. This is flat enough yet thick enough to work.

I doubt that work, especially since it doesn't sound very comfortable.

That's not a bad idea, I'll see how that works for her.

Strange the seat height isnt adjustable. My 07' SL has a manual height adjustment lever on the side of the seat. GL

Manual height adjustment was an option which was only available with the SL models here in Canada.
