HAHA! Love the comments here! I'm 6'-3" with long legs, and with the seat all the way back and lowered I'm comfortable. I have several inches to spare from the top of my head to the roof, which says a lot being that my GTO only gave me about an inch of headroom. You should fit, just don't expect anyone to EVER be able to sit behind you.

If all else fails, take out the front seat and drive from the rear!

Yes telescoping = in/out such as holding a manual telescope or binocs, and twisting to make it extend in/out for focus.

Long legs, need long arms to reach the wheel after pushing the seat back into the rear seat..

Telescoping would have been nice.

no prob, long arms. (just teasing)


It's mostly fine for me too, but on long rides it's good to change your seating position to avoid ***-numbness; being able to move that wheel in/out would help add to that. Otherwise, it's a better wheel then I thought I'd get in the car.

My BIGGEST problem though, is the front seats when someone sits in the back. The lever to release the seat forward is pretty crappy and it doesn't slide the seat forward, just the incline. It makes it rough for people trying to get in and out.
i agree with you 100%
i cant count how many times ive replaced those finger lever things.
