Our Fleet Test Drive: Citroen C5 Tourer - 6th report
03 March 2009
Author: Guy Bird
I'm all for easily adjustable seats but a recent unnerving experience made me realise that making them just a bit trickier could be beneficial.
Case in point: on a family outing the other day, my tall-for-her-age five-year old daughter, firmly secured in a car seat behind me, became curious about a lever to the right side of my seatback. Moments later, one well-placed kick instantly reclined my seat so that instead of looking ahead I found myself staring at the ceiling. Not an ergonomically sound position for driving.
Note for Citroen designers' suggestion box: please make front seat adjustment harder for five-year olds to adjust.
