Driver Seat Comfort: How do you Feel at the Wheel?

seatThe more you drive the more you realize that comfort is of utmost importance. Unfortunately, many people find it difficult to remain comfortable while behind the wheel.

If you struggle to remain comfortable while you drive, there are a few things you can do:

1. Adjust your seat. This is the first step you should take, as it could solve your trouble once and for all. Experiment with different configurations to find what works best for you.

Tip: this is easiest if you have a power adjustable seat.

2. Sit upright. While it may make you feel better temporarily, reclining your seat too far can have a negative impact on your back over the long run. Move your seat to a more upright position. You will be glad that you did.

3. Use a pillow. This may sound silly, but adding a pillow between your lower back and the seat can solve many of your problems. A small travel pillow is all you need. Move it around to find the spot that improves your comfort.

If you can’t seem to get comfortable when behind the wheel of your vehicle, it is time to experiment with the three ideas above. You may find that one of these is just what you have been looking for.
