I'm not tall, 5'8" and change, but the way I sit no adult will ever sit behind the driver seat. However, I'm convinced I can get my nephew in a booster back there. Planning on him in that seat, my mom in the passenger back seat(she's not tall at all) and my brother in front passenger seat to go to a car show next year. I feel confident it will work, but I'm never riding back there.

Climbed back there twice now to do some cleaning, could not actually sit up straight, head was crooked to the side.

I have twin 9yr olds who ride in the back on boosters on a daily basis. Zero issues. They also rode in full car seats in this car a few years ago with no issues either.

I wouldn't recommend anyone sit back there for long periods of time..

I suppose it might not be bad for anyone who is 5'6" or under and skinny.

Mostly, our dog sits back there..

Drunk people. They are always happy for the ride home and don't care how much they have to squeeze!

Absolutely, while the taller they are the more complaints you will hear. That is one reason I had to get rid of mine. Me, g/f and her 2 kids (1 is 6' tall the other is 5'6" tall), They both complained about no room in back seat. It's possible for short trips, but not for long trips...forget it!!!!

That's what I did. I was worried about it too, so I took my kids to a local dealer and asked if we could all sit in it to see how it would work. I'm 6'3", and my 8 year old son was able to sit behind me, but not by much. He had about 2 inches between his knees and the back of the driver's seat.

Hopefully by the time the kids start getting too big for one of them to sit behind me when I'm driving, they'll be old enough to put one of them in the front and the other in the rear passenger side seat. Getting all 4 of us (including wife) in the car will be tough in a couple years. We're not expecting that the camaro will really be used as the "family" car though.

Wife (5'7"), daughter (5'9") and I (5'11") drove from Texas to No. Carolina and back last year--3000 miles and 4 days drving. No problems. Granted, only one person in back seat at a time and we rotated. Certainly worth the minor discomfort to have the road trip in the Camaro!

Owned a 2011 SS. It's not the room you really have to worry about. It's the doors. The doors keep you from getting into the back to get your kids without bumping the car next to you. It's absolutely pointless to have back seats unless you let everyone out before you park. Having small kids, that's not safely possible if you are the only parent with them that day. People claim their "friends" have ridden in the back. I have a coworker named Dan, who is probably 5'06" on a good day with grass on the bottom of his shoes. He couldn't get back there. I don't know who people are hanging out with that could fit back there grown up.

Can people actually ride in the back seats?
Yes, I've had people sit in the back. If they're short it's not an issue but if they're tall with long legs, it's not comfortable for long rides.

However, while there are back seats in the camaro, there doesn't appear to be a lot of room there. Can you put a car seat, kids, or even an adult in the back seats? I did a search, but the only applicable thread was from 2009.

Any insight people?

I took two of my cousins to a bar b q joint a while back in my Camaro. One or the other was in the back

Both of them go over six feet. Nobody died.

I'll say! How many mpg do you get out of the wife and kids, anyway?
