I've had this car for 3 days and the rating is based on how it rides which is nice and smooth. I do not find the seat comfortable and do not like driving the car. I am 5feet tall and cannot see over the hood even after putting two cushions on seat. I found a decent cushion but still uncomfortable to drive. If possible I would have returned it today, but I don't give up, so if it's possible to have seat raised, I would really like to know if and where possible. I would recommend the Venue to anyone taller than 5'2".
