Default Re: Brake pedal too high, causing right leg pain

Firends, the discussion is interesting and I wanted to clarify one thing. What is the most ergonomic way of using right leg while driving? I get a feeling I am doing it the wrong way and I recently noticed getting right leg ankle pain while driving i10. I usually keep my hind foot planted on the the mat. To apply brake or accelerator, I rotate the leg around ankle. I do not lift my leg off the mat. Am I doing something wrong here?

Your way of driving is more comfortable when
1. Knees are only slightly bent (less then 30 degree)
2. You can reach both the pedals and switch between them without flexing your ankle. You just need to swivel the heel.
3. Your foot is sufficiently long to reach the accelerator with your toes and after swiveling brake using the ball of your foot.
4. There is sufficient under-thigh support in your seats.

If your seating posture does not meet the above criteria it is painful.

P.S: I use it. :-)
