6'4" and 250. 2002 tl-p

I agree with needing a little more head room. I usually have the sun roof panel open.
Sitting a bit lower would help as well as a telescopic wheel, the Altima has it it just makes sense.
At the same time it is a great ride.

Would she be able to drive the TL?

6'0. New owner of used TL (or is it other way around?)

How do you tall folks do it? My head brushes the sunroof seam, unless I move seat back, but then I have to straight-arm to reach the wheel. I prefer to have either arm bent, elbow on rest, hand on 8- or 4- o'clock of the wheel. I don't know if this is abnormal, but my sleeve (pit to wrist) is 19"

6'3 and I weigh 210. There's plenty of leg room, but my head brushes up against the roof of the car.

I agree with Narnia. I'm 5' 5'', raise the driver's seat to full height and am quite comfortable. I also wish the passenger seat could raise up.
