Default Any tall S2000 owners

I tried out a new S2000 today. I'm 6-2 and it seems that I may be too
tall for this car. I was looking at the top of the windshield instead
of thru the middle. Any advise?

thanks

Mort

Go back and try it again, this time adjust the seatback to "lean" back.
Quite possibly you were sitting too straight. Sounds like you may also be
abnormally long-waisted (more of your height is above your hips than in
your legs). That sometimes makes it difficult to find a car that "fits"
you. Unusually short persons can have the seat raised, long-legged persons
can have the seat moved back, but for the long-waisted, we're more or less
screwed.

There is a button on the seat--near the floor that allows you to adjust
the height of the seat--make sure the seat is as low as possible.

I've seen posts from tall people that purchased a Honda and were upset
with it since they were too tall to fit in the seat. You are better off
than those people since you just test drove it.
You may have to buy a Honda SUV. If you really want a sports car, you
should visit other dealers such as BMW to see if their seats work better
for you.

I went back and tried it again. The seat only moves forward and back.
It was leaned all the way back too. Dang - what a beautiful car.

Thanks very much for the feedback
