I’m 6ft 4in and big. I’m looking for a small car that gets great gas mileage and has alot of room. Is this possible?

Same here. I’m looking at the Fit and the xB.

I’m 6’2 340 pounds and I fit with extra room in my first gen Neon, and got regularly 35MPG. Not sure about the new gen, but I suspect similar capabilities.

One might want to avoid a Neon heir until we see what happens to Chrysler…

Avoiding Chrysler products would determine the outcome, wouldn’t it?

I couldn’t fit in the Fit. 30" inseam and didn’t have enough leg room

Scion xB…preferably first generation.

First gen xBs have great room and much better reliability, but their safety is poor.
