Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Hi Mary Ann, I have had a number of "petite" women come to my shop with this same question. It is important to find a vehicle that you can see out of front, sides and rear, be 10-12 inches away from the airbags and still reach the pedals. For one customer, we put in pedal extenders in a Rav 4 for her gas and brake pedals. They have enabled her to be comfortable yet feel safe and secure driving her vehicle. Some other vehicles that might be comfortable and easy to see out of are: Acura MDX Chevrolet Malibu Honda Civic Toyota Camry But like trying on shoes, you need to get into them and drive around to see how they really feel! All My Best, Amy Mattinat
