The car drives like a plank - all firmness and no feel. I'm actually thinking of selling it. ps anyone know of a fix for extending drivers legroom.
Didn't you go for a test-drive?

The steering-wheel is reach and angle adjustable (I'm assuming you have already worked out how to adjust the seat in all the various directions)
I'm 6'2'' and I don't have any problems - occasionally my knee might touch the cruise stalk but no other issues
