I think the left leg should always be kept on the floor, except when changing gears and using the clutch. Resting the leg on the clutch not only causes fatigue but causes early clutch wear.

I really appreciate Cedia's footrest, it is so comfortable.

My other car Wagon R clutch is too high with no foot rest, that is first thing that hits me while switching cars.

Never thought it would be a big issue to discuss. I always rest it on the floor. Funny thing is, when I am on long drives (>8 hrs), once my right foot gets tired of pressing the acclerator, the left starts doing the job . But never even in emergencies I have missed to bring it back to clutch pedal in an instant in my 12+ years of driving. I guess it is all about getting used to something.

I second that. My left foot is flat on the floor except when I need to change gears, or in bumper-to-bumper traffic when even 1st gear is unsuitable.

Thumbs up

In Santro there also an option of foot rest and it is very helpful in this case.
Happy driving....
