    Just picked this up yesterday. Our last brand-new car was purchased in 1994. Since then we've had several cars purchased used, most of them in GMC Safari/Chevy Astro line. (For a long time I either showed dogs, or shuttled teenagers & friends around. I'm no longer showing, and we're down to one kid left at home.) I have wanted a Prius since they came out, but my 6'6" hubby does NOT fit in any Toyota vehicles! The steep slope of the windshield leaves him no headroom. [​IMG]

    So yesterday we picked up a Ford C-Max! Went for the least-options baseline model. As a bonus, we can play audiobooks on my iPhone through the radio! New technology, yeah! [​IMG] And hubby fits!

    DH still has his pickup for hay and grain; bonus is that 15 yr old DS, already 6'4", fits in the back seat. If anyone is looking for a car that can fit tall people, I highly recommend this one! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] My brother is 6 ft 8 inches tall, and many years ago he used to drive a Mazda truck. It was so funny to see him scrunch up inside that thing.

    Congratulations on your new car!
