I am 6'6" & 230lb fit very comfortably in the TL. I went to the Acura dealer to test drive the TSX, but did not fit well.

I'm 6'1" and the room in the TL was one of the reasons I chose it over the BMW 325.

5' 10" here.......counting another vote for the "not overly tall, so we don't have to use more than our share of all the air and water" segment.
Methinks perhaps some people might be stating their height as it might be displayed in the NFL Player's Guide!! Now THERE'S some fictional writing.

I'm 6'5" and I've found while shopping (don't have a TL yet) that my height has eliminated alot of cars for me. My current vehicle, I have to wrap my legs around teh steering wheel, but it is comfy cause it has nice seats and has lots of adjustability (lumbar/tilt etc). The Legacy GT, R32, G35, and TSX are all about the same size and are just OK. The TL has plenty of room, which is NICE.

I am 6', 195 lb. I still have yet to test drive the TL. Still looking at that and other cars. I have a fairly built frame (gotta love hockey) so shoulder room is a must.

6'1" and I can sit behind myself with room to spare...one of the reasons we bought the TL in the first place! As noted earlier, my right knee seems to ride up against the center section. Love the seats.

6"4" 195 lbs. I fit OK, but I'm really not happy with the seats. They hurt my lower back on trips. My Z3 did that and I got rid of it. My '98 Vette was super comfy. Has anyone put in aftermarket seats? I tried a lower back pillow and it helps some. I love the car, but geez my back hurts!

5'11' but i sit waaay back (no not like a ganster, but just to be comfortable)

It's fantastic how there is so much more room in the backseat of the TL, my buddies IS300 is very cramped and hurts the back when you sit in rear

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!
Yo, You are so right, I'm 5'7" and I had to raise the seat abit higher but it does make you feel that you are looking down at the passenger.

There's nothing you can do about your height. You just have to take what you get. I have a 99 TL and its fits perfect for me than any other cars I have driven. I have the seat almost all the way up too, but still very comfortable for very long drives that I have done. I think the minimum height you can have is 5 feet.

I'm 6'4 250 lbs. (all muscle of course), no problem at all fitting in the TL. "I got a need, a need for speed" just a line out of Top Gun I felt appropriate.

No, I'm the shortest so far -- I'm just 5 feet. I also have short arms and legs (inseam 27.5"), and my '04 TL is a nice fit for me!

6'3, 250lbs.

2003 TL-P.

I fit fine leg wise. My back is kind of wide for the driver seat though. I also wish the seat would sit lower. It feels as though I am sitting up too high at times.

It is still a very comfortable ride regardless. Long trips are a dream.
