Best car for someone who is 6"3

Ok so I am currently in a 1999 honda accord transmission is about to go out so I'm in the market for a new car my parents say I need a truck for how tall I am but I don't want to pay the gas for a truck I will admit I drive 4 1/2 hours to school and when I do I can't do it straight because I am to cramped up so I have to get out and stop every time so what a nice size car for me does not have to be new by any means now I am 19 so I would not mind somthing with a turbo It's not essential... But it would be nice and reliablity is a must my parents are moving to Texas next year and I'm going to school in NC so it has to make that drive

6'3" isn't freakishly tall and you should manage just fine in a Honda Accord. However, I would advise you to buy a King Ranch F250 because anyone who doesn't drive a King Ranch F250 has awful taste in cars.

And it's not so much I don't manage I just am tired of my head hitting the roof and my legs going numb on long drives

Im 6'4 and have found very few cars that I would consider too small for me to comfortably drive, but it probably depends on your torso length.

Please take the period from your signature and place it in your posts but any car is good 6'3" isnt that tall where you start running into fitment issues oh by the way ' stands for feet while " stands for inches i really doubt you are 6 inches and 3 feet tall nonetheless you could go into a used car dealership and start sitting in random makes and models and go off that run on sentences are pretty great and increase my words per minute oh and also i almost forgot there are a lot of trucks that get decent miles per gallon like something in the high 20s and low 30s so dont immediately be put off by trucks because one would probably suit your needs the best at the end of all this

The clear logical choice is the ford King Ranch F250.


I would also suggest a scion xB they have a ton of room . The guy who coached volleyball in HS had one and we was really tall ,

The new Subaru Forester has a LOT of headroom. I'm sure other vehicles in that class of the same year do as well, though. Although it doesn't quite compare to the KRF250.

Im not too sure of turbod cars with a lot of room, as most of them are pretty small. A buddy of mine is about your size and has the same problem with a lot of cars, so he drove mainly Cadillacs. A Cadillac is iffy though. You either get one that will drive past 200k miles or one with bad head gaskets and electrical problems, but if you do get a good one you have loads of power, good car for the winter, style, and lots of room. If you don't want to try that, my same buddy bought a monte carlo ltz and loves it.

The guy who wants to modify N/A, 15 second Eclipses gives awful car advice. Shocker.

This has a turbo. It's pretty small, I guess that knocks out the King Ranch F250. It's probably faster than an Eclipse though.

Hey this guy's tall everyone. He needs special consideration for a vehicle because he is over 6 feet tall you guys. I'd recommend a Suburban, ML Mercedes, or that giant Infitini SUV, nothing smaller.

I'm a guy who has been challenged with finding a car that suits my lanky ***. I'm 6'6" and have owned 2 cars that I found to be extremely comfortable for my height.
First was a early 2000's Pontiac Bonneville SLE. 3.6L V6. Plenty of power for anything, not to hard on gas.
Second is my favorite normal vehicle. Dodge magnum. Only ran for 3 years. Sometimes hard to find. If it snows where you live, I would recommend the RT AWD. Gas mileage is alright but it is a 5.7L V8 with cylinder shutdown to help on the highway
I enjoy the magnum a lot. I've owned the RT for about 5 years and recently picked up a SRT8.

Both of these cars are very comfortable and have plenty of space for passengers and trunk space.

If your interested in a magnum or 300 or charger, let me know. I could probably set you in the right direction.

Good luck on the car hunt
