Yes, I see what you're saying but this guy commented on that from the 98 Bonneville which is exact the same as mine and I'm not complaining of headspace, hell, I'm not even close to it, maybe the fatass didn't put his seat all the way down.

WTF, I'm 6'5 and I have so much room left, it'* not even funny, the back seat is cavernous.

Have you ever heard any other dumbass comments about the Bonneville?
I have a neighbor that is 6'3", used to drive a bonne, and he said it feels roomy.
He still has it, but it has a lot of problems. One of them being the AC compressor, it is locked up or something. I had told him about this website, but he says he is kind of strapped for cash to buy parts anyways. He is going thru a divorce.
He is well aware of the intake issues also.

6'5" is still within comfort range I would think, especially cause in my LeSabre (similar car H) I feel dwarfed in it, and I am 5'9"

I don't understand why folks call the bonne an old people car. It never came across like that to me. The lesabre, I will admit it looks a little, oh what'* the word? Geriatric?

If anything is an issue with the H, I would say it is not good for short people. My wife who is 5'2" hates my car, cause it is "too big"

Yeah, I still am stumped by how people automatically label the Bonnevile a "old person car" It doesn't come across that way, and as you admitted the Lesabre is "senile" in looks while the Bonne is wonderfully sculpted.

I still like Lesabres mind you.

What the h***? It'* not a family sedan, I classify it as an affordable sport sedan.

The Bonneville often feels like a limo in the back seat, perfect for college, catch my drift? Huh? Huh? Huh? (winks)

Its a family sedan, plus becuase of its price, its often seen by older people with less expenses!
