    * Perhaps you have air suspension but the low option is helpful and can be set to remember at GPS locations (ie. your house, or friends).
    * Perhaps because there are no 'oh $hit' handles in these cars (in the way of air bags?)

    Consider a step with a large stable platform that can be 4"/10cm or 8"/20cm -- think camper -- example: https://smile.amazon.com/Quick-Products-JQ-S150-Platform-X-Large/dp/B00IZZDRR0/ref=zg_bs_2290233011_7

    I saw this the other day. The strap is used to pull the step which folds as it's being pulled.

    I use this to sit and put my shoes on in the morning. My wife reads this forum. Don't give her any ideas to use it to get in and out of the MX. Next thing I know, my pants are all dirty in the butt area because of y'all's ideas.

    Ha! You need to spend $20 and get a second one for the car. $20 is a lot cheaper than a divorce.
