Monty Posted May 18, 2021 Share Posted May 18, 2021 What's with the cramped conditions in so many modern cars? I get that cD can play a role in highway mpg etc, but I doubt Americans have somehow gotten shorter. Current examples: Best friend recently got a great deal on a well-cared-for '08 Cadillac DTS. OK, I think, this should be great...until I tried to climb in. You'd think if anything would have easy ingress built in, it'd be a Cadillac sedan. Apparently not if you're 6'3". Getting out was even worse. It's rare that I use the word contortions, but that's what it took. Second example: local repair shop provides a ride home for those who need it. They use some medium-sized GMC crossover. Guess who had to fold himself into and out of that? I say that, having ridden in and driven Chevy S10 pickups with no issues. Current car is a 2005 Buick LeSabre, which has all the room I need. And no, I don't want a truck or SUV. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
