I just brought my new 2018 RX home and my wife has found great difficulty in getting into the vehicle.  Does anyone have any recommendations?

Hi David,

I'm guessing that your trouble is setting your seat, steering wheel height, and steering wheel column angle.

There are 10 settings for the seat alone, In your manual you'll see the forward and backward setting, lumbar support, seat back position, seat cushion  up and down.

The adjustment for the steering wheel height is the most in need of upward movement. There are a crazy number of adjustments you can set to 'on' or 'off'. Take out your owners manual and sit in the car and have some fun.

We love our RX.

My wife had knee replacements which made her shorter (believe it or not) and with the seat low, she still can not back into the seat.

So I built her a 4 inch hi step with carpet and a handle to attach a cord. She stand on the step, sits down and pulls up the step by the cord and places it on the passenger seat. Works great.

FYI: I traded a Camry because it was too low for her to get out of after surgery.  Now she can’t get into the RX.

She could not get into the RAV4 either. What the heck are you going to do.

There is an optional running boards for $640  which may help. But my wife hated it. We got one w/o. Good luck

Thanks!  The 350 would not even look the same with running boards.  Not saying they would look bad, just change the “Lines” of this crossover.  Don’t intend to do that either.
