Got the 08 LE- drove the Cavalier for 9 years. I'm tall 5'10" (female)
Already flipped the headrest but feel like I am looking down towards the road rather than out. Could this be me trying to adjust to the new Camary (higher off the ground,etc)? Also noticed that I sit higher (obviously than the Cavalier08 but that my line of vision is almost to the top of the windshield?

Am I adjusting or is this a real issue? Anyone else:sosad:

yea, adjust the seat to avoid looking at the road as much as possbile. You should probably put the head rest back in case you get rear ended - it'll protect your neck.

:thumbup: Put the headrest back (for your safety), try using the lumbar support, sometimes it helps ;)

i second dropping the seat, if you dont have power seats its a manual pumping action down on the forward lever that will drop it.. but you have an LE so it should be power? im 6'5" with "short" legs and I never get that feeling while driving. I have a little bit of lean in my seat too.

good luck hope you can find the sweet spot

She never removed the head rests... she just flipped it backwards so that it leans back more

OP, don't tell me you rest your head against your headrest while you drive... cuz then of course you would be looking up.

The best seats force you to use the headrest when driving. It will protect your neck in rear end accidents. Flipping the headrest backwards is not good because your neck will take more impact if you get rear ended.

That's what thought about the better quality seatrs forcing you to use the headrest. Wow 6'5" and no problems... I think I will adjust the seats. Yes, there is a power adjust for up and down,etc.

Yes, I will keep adjusting then get back too all the wonderful people here:clap::clap:
