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?

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!

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

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.
