Anyone else find that they can accidently change the light switch setting when climbing in and out of the car? A few times I've returned to the car to see that I have accidently left the lights on because of this issue; I normally have it set to Auto?

Absolutely!
I'm always doing it.
I'm 6'2".
Bluddy stupid place to put a light switch.
I tend to turn them on on when getting in & off when I get out.
I also have the switch in auto all the time.

Sorry gents, I am 6ft 2 .
Its never happened to me , but have only had my Bear just over a month.
I can only think you have the seat set to close to the steering wheel. Try moving the seat base further back, and raising the back rest to a more upright position. , thus making your access and egress less of a jiggling round in the seat to get past the steering wheel.

At 6'2" my seat is as far back as it will go and as high as it will go.
The fact I am 17 stone shouldn't make any difference as it is my waist that is over size, not my knees! It :lol:

I've hit it a couple of the times. It's a pest but manageable. I'll often check to see if the switch is in the right position. Stupid bloody place to put it though.

I hit that for a couple of times in my xc60. I think in Kodiaq the knob is in a little better place because i have never accidentally hit that with my knee.

Your time will come!, my wife is knee high to a grasshopper and she has the same problem occasionally!

I have experienced the same problem also. Fortunately I have always noticed before the battery has gone flat !
I am 5' 10 and have the seat a good distance away from the steering wheel just for the record !

Surely if you knock the lights dial into a "permanently on" position, the car will chime at you as you open the driver side door?
One I could try myself, of course.
