Limited reach shouldn't keep you from driving your own car. The solution is to either move you as a driver closer to the functions you want to control or by moving the functions closer to you.

If reaching the pedals is an issue the gas, brake and clutch pedal can be moved within reach by the use of extension pedals. If people of different height share the same vehicle, the pedal extensions can be made foldable or detachable.

The entire steering wheel can be replaced with a smaller one to ensure a correct grip.
