07 Zx5 Se???

Need a car for some upcoming work related travel. My local dealer has an 07 ZX5, black, SAP1, ATX, leather, moon roof, etc... I am 6'1" and weigh about 260. How are these cars for larger fellows such as myself? And, how are they for interstate driving? Thanks in advance!!!

Well my dad weighs 280 and is 6'2, and he and I drove the length of the state of California without a problem. I don't have the moon roof, so that might minus an inch or two of head room between cars, you'll have to sit in it to check head room. other than that I'd say if my dad fits you'd fit.

There is more leg room than in Corolla/Civic/or any other compact car I've seen so far. I'm 6'1 and one of the things I like the most is leg room!

I get into the one listed above for about $16400. It is fully loaded. Is this a good price?

you might be able to haggle the price a little too since they'll be clearing out for the 08s. my local dealer is selling brand new 07s (ses) for 10grand...so you might be able to get it cheaper than 16k...but if not thats still a pretty good price for it being fully loaded with the SAP.

very interesting....lol seriously.

in my fofo, i can be on the highway, jam it to the floor it picks up and goes.
othertimes, it won't.

same goes for if i have the A/C on.

if im in the city, it'll usually drop down a gear and go, othertimes it won't. i really don't understand it sometimes lol. but once i get that flasher, all that should go away.

I'm a 6'3 inch bastard, and i fit in my 07zx3 just fine, only thing with the seats is that they feel too flat, they should slope back a lil more

performance with the auto tranny is absolute slow boringness, 1/4 mile in 18 seconds. but hey, what do you expect from an A-B appliance?
