Strange Question

I can't seem to find a sweet spot in my focus... I am always changing settings. Anyone else like this?
The question is.. how do you drive? do your knee's touch the steering wheel colum, etc.

lol

Im 6' but my legs are longer than my torso... I usually have it 2 clicks away from all the way back and 4 or 5 clicks reclined. its reeeeeeally comfy.... NOT lol my seat has ZERO lower back support it sucks for long drives.

for autox I un-recline it to 3 clicks.

I know what you mean, I'm the same way, and it's not just the Focus but every car I've owned. It gets better over time (like a year) as I get settled in to one car. There's no one perfect position to just set and forget. If my back is tired/achy I tilt the seat back a bit. I also may change the wheel tilt to suit my driving situation at any given time.

I just don't like how close your legs are to the pedals when you try to sit up close to the wheel.
