Hi guys, I am the new owner of a suzuki vitara 1.6 3door and i am quite a big lad!!! the seat belts are very tight fitting with the seats adjuted forward for me to reach the pedals. Is there anything(apart from dieting!!!) i can do to increase their length legally and safely? It is a 1.6 ,1999,3door model. thanx Fizzybeer.

You could try and find a longer inertia reel belt, from a scrapyard look at the one on your vit and find something that matches off another car but measure it before you buy.

Thanks very much for all the sugestions,does anyone know of a model of car with longer belts that would fit?? I had thought of high heels or platforms, but my wife said no way!!! Laughing a harness might be an idea though.The belts are even tight for a smaller person if the seats are quite far forward!!!  Sad
