I believe this is correct. It is my understanding that the front seats in the PT Cruiser are known for being on the high side.

Your guess is as good as mine. [:I] I'm sure someone on the forum will have the answer. [|)]

It has to do with the electric mechanism. I drove a cruiser without the electric seat and the position was much lower. Bad design on this IMHO.

If you want your seat lower and don't need power seats, you could switch out the mechanism for a manual one. I tried www.car-part.com that someone listed on another thread around here and there must be plenty of wrecked PTs out there for parts.

I have a 2001 Limited. The height from the floor (with floor mat in place)to the front seam in the seat bottom is 12 1/2 inches +/- 1/4 inch. It's about the same on both driver seat (at lowest position) and passenger seat. If your power seat is significantly higher there is a problem. If you're talking about 1/4 to 1/2 inch difference I'd say you have a non-issue.

I find the power height adjuster a joke. I always leave it at the lowest as does my wife. I'm 5'10" and she's 5'4".

I dont have the same seats but i did have a problem with my driver seat not reclining as far as the passengers seat did. I took a look inside and found a penny blocking the hinge. maybe you have a similar problem.
