Since I am 6'8" tall ... a Tilt Wheel option is an absolute must in ANY vehicle I drive.
The cars I have owned that fit me best without modification are:
* Mercedes S Class
* Infiniti M45
* Nissan Vehicles in general fit me well but I do not care for them much.
The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica can be touch tight getting in and out but once I am in I am OK. The issue has to do with the angle I enter the vehicle. If I get t wrong I have to reset and retry entry.
I own Four Toyota Vehicles, Three (3) 80 Series Land Cruisers and One (1) Tp100 Pickup. Non of them fit me without modification of the seats. We do that modification here at our shop and it is actually stronger than the original factory seat mounting.
I basically evaluate ride, performance, technology and other aspects such as sound.
The Chrysler fails include a 3G System for WiFi and a poor quality sounds system unless you upgrade to the top of the line Harman Kardon which I did do. Even that is just acceptable and I would not qualify it as good However, I have a long history as a Recording Engineer and an Audiophile so am pickier that most when it comes to sound.
Reliability is a factor that I consider as well. My other vehicles are "keepers" and range in years from 1994 to 2008. They are all reliable, well made, well engineered vehicles.
Historically, the Chrysler does not score high in reliability but neither do most modern USA brands these days. I am only keeping this vehicle for 3 years since technology will be progressing rapidly in these vehicles over the next serval years. So reliability was not a huge factor or major consideration for me.
I am 5'10" and all cars seem to have good headroom for me.
What other things are special about how you evaluate cars?
For example; Does a tilt/telescoping wheel help with your seating, or is it ineffective?
Are there cars that have been great for you out of the gate or with little modification?
