Well I am getting my Camaro in a week probably. I am so excited! But I am just a little nervous honestly. I had a 99 Camaro for 4 years before and then a Mazda 3. I keep hearing reviews saying if you are over 6 ft there is no room for you and it is uncomfortable. With that being said I am 6'2. Any of you over 6 feet tall have enough room and feel comfortable driving your Camaro? Also another common problem I am expecting is of course the visibility. I know it is real bad, I test drove it. But are any of you getting use to it now? OR do you have any tips?

Don't worry...you'll be fine. I'm 6'3...I don't even need to put the seat all the way back. Plenty of leg and head room. There's a little less headroom w/ the sunroof if you ordered one. I really don't understand those reviews that say it's not for tall people. :confused: I have more headroom in the Camaro than I do in my Trailblazer. :confused:

The visibility at first is a little weird...you need to get used to it. After a few days, it was no longer an issue. I've had mine for a little over a month and I'm VERY comfortable with the car.

One thing I did do...I HATE the fact that the onstar mirror is HUGE...might just be an issue for us tall peeps, but it feels like the mirror takes up half the windshield (and in the mirror, you see just as much back-seat & headliner as you do rear window). I flipped mine around (so the onstar buttons are on top)...it opens up some more visibility and it's hardly noticeable that the buttons are upside-down.:eek: Would love to find a smaller mirror.

I'm 6'2 and I don't have a problem. My head is close, but not to the point where it's retarded. I put my seat back all the way, but that's just personal preference. I had 4 people riding with me the other day and I put the seat up enough for the person behind me to be comfortable and I could drive just fine.

If I have time to take pics I'll post some for you.

You magnificent bastard.

I'm running out to the garage right now.

;)


I moved mine a bit a few weeks ago and accidentally hit the Onstar emergency button. :eek:

to be able to do it, you have to remove the cover that goes over the wiring and slide the connector off the clip that holds it onto the windshield. And while you're at it, you can wire your radar detector (if you have one) into that wiring harness.

I'll post pix later if you'd like.

Yep. It was a tad trickier than I realized it was going to be, but got it reversed. Much better, thanks.

If you're worried a bit about the drivers view past the C (or is it B in these??) pillar, do what I did and get a small convex mirror and plop it onto the lower right hand corner of your drivers side mirror, problem solved. Wtih that mirror, i can see down the drivers side of the car and into the lane to my left. I've always used these mirrors to solve that problem because it is quick, easy, and never detracts from the look of the car..... spend $4 and see if it helps you when your car comes in.
