I have a Lexus SUV The seat kills me-I am tall. I got away from the jeep, as they widened their wheel base from the 1999 model. Do they have a more "grounded" feeling now and a wider wheel base? I might go for a foreign SUV but, I never want the short seat again

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Jenny Trostel, Partner at Anderson of Hunt Valley Time to do a little shopping. If you have problems with the seat's height, I would visit a few different dealers and ask for an extended or overnight test drive to see if the seats are comfortable. If you have had a good experience with the Jeep, go look at that SUV again. Good luck!

Patty Streeter,  at AskPatty.com Laraine, Check out some of the reviews on the Lexus and the Jeep. Automotive.com has some great reviews on both of these makes: http://www.automotive.com/new-cars/01/lexus/index.html http://www.automotive.com/new-cars/01/jeep/index.html Also, the best way to really know what is best for you is to take the cars on test drives and really spend time in the vehicle. Don't let a saleperson pressure you into a short test. Make sure you sit in that vehicle for as long as you'd like. Doing as much research and hands-on testing is the best way to go! Good luck!
