I see I was not clear. The seats are suede leather. Your seat was not going to slide on the seat.

I don't think i made my posting very clear. I took a 2011 Buick Lacrosse for a test drive and as i came to a stop sign i lifted my foot off the gas and caught my shoe on the bottom of the brake pedal on the way up. While driving i was very conscious of this happening again. Has anyone else noticed this before. To me this may be a deal breaker and make me not purchase this car.

I understood your original post quite well. As I replied then, I have had no problem with this happening. And now that I have lots more driving in the CXS under my belt I still have not had this problem. But you have to remember that not everyone fits into car interior configurations the same. The more-than-ample front leg room in the CXS provides amazing comfort, even for larger people, I would think. It would be too bad for you to miss out on the many positive features of this car. Take another road test. You might be happy you did.

I have noticed such on several different cars I was unfamiliar with over the years. I quickly adjust by making a mental note of it and adjusting accordingly. Only once did it ever get me a second time. I was wearing some really big hunting boots with lots of sole.
Hope you can adjust to your needs.

I have noticed that when someone has said that their foot hit the gas instead of the brake they are obese, as we all know by setting in the seat they are made for the average person, not someone who is fighting their own thighs to transfer their foot from one to the other.
Should the auto makers create a wider seat and floor board with the foot feeds farther apart? Should the insurance companies charge obese people more because they have more of these cause related accidents than do "average size people," or is this just yet another cost we all must share because someone else doesn't care about their own health?
