2011+ GC headroom

Hi everyone!
Been lurking on this site for a while now and finally test drove a 2013 GC over the weekend. The only thing that bothered me was the headroom. I'm only 5'11'' but it felt like if I went over a big bump or something I'd hit the roof! Anyone else feel this way? I'm just average height, just wondering how taller people that drive em feel?

Re: 2011+ GC headroom

I'm 6'3 and my head is nowhere near the roof. Never once hit my head in the 2 years I've had mine.

You can adjust the seat by the way!

Oh and welcome!

I'm 6'3'' and never felt missing headroom... But I do have to say the panorama sunroof helps!

Re: 2011+ GC headroom

My intitial thought was to reply that something on me is 12" but its not my legs. Seriously though, I didnt realize that you could adjust the seats up and down. I know they are 8 way adjustable, but didnt know that was one of the adjustments. Cool. Thanks for the quick replies

Re: 2011+ GC headroom

Yup, up and down, Bob. I happen to love (and require) that feature as I greatly prefer to sit up high as it's more comfortable for my legs. No headroom issues for me...I'm 5'11" and not even close to the roof/glass.

It really drives me nuts when I get stuck with a rental car that doesn't support this and I have to drive around feeling like I'm in a go-cart...

Yeah, having to look out the windshield through the spokes in the steering wheel sucks.

So it's your arms that are 12 inches long?

It's all fun bro.
