I agree with this. My brother is 6' 8" and drove a 91 Integra. I couldn't believe that he would fit in that car comfortably until I bought it off of him and found I couldn't even reach the pedals with the seat all the way back (i'm 5' 11") There was no where near that leg room in my Jeep.
Heck, as for hauling the family around, my kids find it easier to get in my car then to climb up into the Jeep I had. My 5 year old (tallest in his class) needed help to get into it most of the time.
The only thing I miss about my Jeep was the fact it drove anywhere. I never got stuck with it in the winter, and I could take it down to the old fishing hole without problems.
