    I am a tall-ish person who seemingly has long legs and short arms. Most cars I sit in I feel I have to put the seat back but then bring the steering wheel as close as possible. I actually find raising the seat height to be beneficial because that takes you further from the pedals, as long as the roof of the car is high enough.
