Didn't think I would add to this post - but finally did considering the last car I drove...

6' 2'' - 185 -- Clearance is fine for me in the 3G TL -

HOWEVER, my head scraped the top and then my hair would stick up on the left after getting out of my big 'ol '96 CROWN VIC (inherited). I think I would have had better clearance sitting in the trunk of that monster!

6'1" and 190lbs

The ceiling is low and I find myself bending my neck down to see b/c I feel a little closed in and I end up with a stiff neck and back. I have the seat all the way back and leaning way back to get away from the front window. Telescopic steering would be awesome. The ergonomics of my Maxima SE were much better.

I am 5'7" and about 140, and I think the seats are a little better for you bigger guys. I swim in the seat a little being a little guy.

I'm 6'6" 220lbs with no issues with comfort. I think they catered to my height division pretty well.

I am 6'5" and the only problem I had was my hair hitting the roof, but I since have gotten a buzz cut and that is no longer a problem.

Annoying Prob

Am 6'5" and I only have one problem with my height in my 2005 6MT:
In relaxed position on interstate drives, my knee keeps hitting the radio knob and turning it off.

6'7" at 260... The TL isn't quite as roomy overall as my old Mercedes, but the headroom is about the same.

Room galore.

6' 3", 190 lbs. The seat is not all the way back. Plenty of room. I have never sat in the back except when treating the leather. No one else has either except for my dog, Zorro. :dog:

6' - 1" and 195lbs. No problems whatsoever. I do like to have the seat a good way back so it isn't as fun for the the little ones in the back.

5' 4" Three problems - I can't look over my left shoulder out the back window because the front and rear headrests and C pillar are in the way - also, I have the seat so far forward that I have to duck under the A pillar to get in and out - lastly, with the seat that far forward, the shoulder belt hangs behind the seatback and is difficult to reach. This is made worse by my lack of flexibility at age 64. It's more of a problem with my '05 TL than with my previous '99. Pretty insignificant though, when I like a car this much.

Possibly not. If you're suggesting that more distance from the airbag is better, I agree. The car's so new that I haven't really gotten used to it yet, so I'll experiment with moving the seat back. Thanks.
After posting I began to wonder if I could use the memory settings to position the seat for easy entry/exit somehow, so I'll look into that. It would be a little complicated though, because there is another driver.

I AGREE! 5-2" here. I LOVE the car. But what I found is when I back out I have ZERO visibility on my left side of the car!!!! Not sure which is worse, but reaching the seatbelt is almost impossible. I finally figured out that I need to put the seatbelt on BEFORE I closed my door, that way I could reach it! Since getting used to this ,its not tooooo bad..... No wonder mostly 6 footers own this car!
