The legroom is OK, but am I the only one who can't find a comfortable place for my feet?

I often wind up with my ankle rolled over, and it actually gets a little sore on a long drive. OK, more than a little.

The left side dead pedal is at the wrong angle, and when cruise is engaged there is a similar lack of a place for my right foot

Anyone else have this problem?

Left Plastic Pedal/Footrest.

Left Plastic Pedal/Footrest.

Im 62 with long legs and found the plastic block pedal on the left to be of no use and downright uncomfortable. I kept repositioning my left heel around the pedal.

Since I didnt order a clutch the dummy block pedal was of no use, so I popped it out (it snaps in & out). It left a small rectangle in the carpet where there is a cut out to provide a recess for the plastic block/pedal. I placed a little carpet piece into the cutout and you cant tell it was there. And the little extra space allows me to slide my left heel into the space with comfort.

I'm 5' 6". The dummy clutch pedal is comfortable for me, but I agree that when cruise control is engaged there's no good place for my right foot. But since I've never had cruise control before, I have nothing to compare it with. My old '89 Civic required a foot on the accelerator any time I wanted the car to keep moving. So the Prius is definitely an improvement in that respect.

I have found no problems with the "footing" arrangement of the driver's floorboard and actually enjoy the spot for the left foot very much. I keep my seat positioned about 1 or 2 clicks from full back (I'm 5'11") and have plenty of room to position both feet anywhere on the floorboard. I drive with cruise at every reasonable opportunity (at least 50% of total driving time) and enjoy the room afforded. Yes, a little telescoping of the steering wheel would be nice but I feel very comfortable with the seating position provided.
