This is an old thread, but I'd like to revive it because it may help me with an issue I'm having. I've only been driving my 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid for 2 weeks (and it's been in the shop most of that time!) but the pedals are killing me. My whole right leg on the outer side is sore and cramped from hip to calf because the pedal arrangement is all wrong for my shape.
I have tried raising, lowering, forwarding, and backwarding the seat to no avail. I have tried a wedge cushion with the wedge facing in all four directions (just in case) on the seat, and even putting behind my back, and none of that has alleviated the problem. Nor does adjusting the angle of the back rest.
I've been observing the difficulty in action to pinpoint what is causing it and I've concluded that I need the accelerator pedal to be a little to the left, a little down, and a little out from where it is at! Now I am searching for a way to accomplish that. This Razo pedal is still available. It looks like it would widen the pedal to the left a bit, the OP states that it lengthened the pedal (I assume in the downward direction? I can't really tell from the pictures how it is longer), so the question is, could I also wedge something between the current pedal and this overlay to bring it out (forward) a bit?
My issues arise from the following disergonomics. First, the pedal is too close to the side wall, which encroaches into my heel space. I have to angle my heel inward, which puts my whole leg at an awkward angle. Then, I am unable to heel/toe to the break. The distance between the two pedals could be closer, but that is not the main hindrance for me. The brake pedal is too far forward (closer to me) with respect to the accelerator pedal, therefore, I can't stretch my foot all the way over and extended backwards (toes pointing back towards leg) to reach it. So I have to move my foot constantly to brake. And finally, I have to put my foot very far forward, with my foot sharply angled up, to keep my shoe on the accelerator pedal because it is up too high for me. This makes the brake pedal feel too close and moving my leg forward to brake also puts my leg at an awkward angle.
I looked at pedals on Amazon, but had no idea how to go about purchasing one that would fit my car and solve my problems. I do NOT want to drill my pedal. So I'm happy to see one that someone has already shown fits. But before I purchase it, are there any comments on how well this solution might work, or other possibilities?
I need to solve this problem quickly because I'm taking this car on her maiden voyage cross country in a week and a half.
