05-06 Driver side head impact doesn't look good for tall people
 
I was just watching this video: http://www.youtube.com/user/iihs#p/u/1/F-c6Vpar8hk and while the 05-06 WK gets great head impact safety ratings, the dummy used is also about 5'6". I'm 6'2" and my head goes above where the airbag would deploy. Have any of our taller members had side-impact accidents with an airbag deploying that can comment on this? Thanks.

You must lean your seat back quite a bit or have super long legs and a tiny upper body because there's no way a proportional sized 6'6" guy could sit properly in a GC.

I'm 5'5 and find that my seat goes way to high for me and I'm quite short. I thought 05-06 doesn't have side airbags?
