6' 6" and I fit....The only issue is related to my old beat up knees but I have the same problem in any car and I am not ready to switch a truck or SUV yet.

I am 6'5" and fit very comfortably in the TL. I went to the Acura dealer to test drive the TSX, but did not fit well. I was originally looking at the G35 because of the RWD, but did not fit in the car. I also do not fit in the BMW 3 series.

I'm 6'10" and 265 lbs and I fit pretty well. And no I don't play in the NBA I feel sorry for anybody who has to sit behind me though.

6' 2" and I fit comfortably, only thing that bothers me is when I open my window down all the way my arm cannot rest comfortably on the window opening.

Tall tales

I'm only 5' 14". And 185 (most days). I just got back from an 800 mile tour of Florida. Only once or twice did I get a slight back ache after driving for 3 or 4 hours. I adjusted the lumbar support to a different position, straightened the seat back a little and I was good to go.

For all those naysayers re: FWD, most of whom don't actually own and drive a TL: SHUT UP! This car handles great! I had to dodge lots of hurricane debris (X3) in the roadway. I was amazed at the quick and nimble handling of the TL at speed. My other car is a BMW. I'm not easily impressed.

Since this thread is specifically talking about the 2004 TL seats, I will leave it here for now.

6' 6" coming out of an SUV and couldn't be happier. Just have to get used to the recline.

I looked at the Inifiniti G and I and had to convince the saleswoman to get off her fat butt just to let me sit in those cars. (She already knew, no way I was squeezing into those things). Suffice it to say I got the Acura.

I'm 6'4". I'm in a habit of always adjusting a seat all the way back in most cars so that I can fit my legs in comfortably, but when I test drove the TL I was amazed to discover that I did not need to go all the way back to fit. There was still room to go! I was, however, dissapointed by the back seat headroom. My head contacted the headliner. In the TSX it did not.

6'4" and a former G35 owner. Sold the G35 because I couldn't find a comfortable seating position. Happy with the TL.

I'm 5'5" and I have to raise the seat almost as high as it goes.

About the only thing I don't like about this car is that the height of the passenger seat can't be adjusted. I feel like I'm looking down on my companions!

Who Cares!? It's better off for you if she can drive it. Yesterday my mother had to take my TL to the store. I almost vomited and fainted from the anxiety.

6'5" mostly legs. My right knee has to rest against the console and this can get uncomfortable during long trips, but not too bad. My e39 BMW had a bit more room for me to stretch my legs out. It also had less power.
