Expect people whining about no leg room(only take short trips with teens and adults or their gonna be complaining
You have 426 ponies to get them to where they need to be before they complain. :P

Also, I sat in mine with it adjusted, (6'2"), my friend sat beside me (5'10"), the person behind me was 6', and the person behind my friend was 6'1". We were all perfectly comfortable. The 6 footers in the back just kinda slouched forward some in their seat to keep their head from hitting the roof, just using more leg room, and they were perfectly fine for the half hour drive we had to Wing House And they were perfectly fine after each of us ate over 30 breaded wings before starting on the way home. SO. 4 teenagers averaging 6' and 30 wings in 'em with that 'oh my god I can't believe I just ate all that' feeling were perfectly fine

I have sat in the back seat, and being short (5' 6") just my hair brushed the roof lining. It wasn't comfortable, but for a very short trip - not with ME back there though, I think it would be ok.

It's not a people hauler for me - it's my fun car so 1 other person - my love - is all I really care about taking...otherwise, just me is fine! If I need to take other people, I can just use my commuter vehicle.

Oh, wait, that's a Suzuki GSX-R750 - damn

I'm 6'1 and sat in the back seat at the dealership. I could fit, but my legs were crushed, much like flying coach.

You have to move the seat all the way forward using the controls to get back there. It doesn't quickly slide like some of the other cars I've been in.

I guess I need to be satisfied with my choice to have teens but I didn't know 18 years ago that evil Chevy was going to tempt me with Megan Fox fawning over the 2010 Camaro...

I'm actually now reluctantly started looking at the more practical AWD Equinox. Have I finally grown up and become another brick in the wall?

I sat in the back and was fine... mind you, I'm 5'2". I let my dad drive it and he's 6ft and had the seat all the way back. I wouldn't want to sit back there for 2 hours, but the 30 minute drive around town didn't bother me... I wouldn't want to be much taller and squeeze back there - my head was about an inch from the roof.

I'm 5'10", my wife is 5'5" and with my seat in its normal position, she can sit behind me without hitting her knees or her head. She said it was actually pretty comfortable. I think there may actually be a little MORE room than the 4th gen, although I don't have one anymore so I can't compare them side by side.

Before you give up on the Camaro, get your kids and go sit in one. You may not have had the front seat adjusted the way that you normally would...

Both my wife and I sat in the back seat of the dealer demonstrator (2LT/RS). Seating is cramped but will work for very short hops. Kid is in college, so infant/toddler/child seating isn't an issue.

The Mrs. and I will attempt backseat gymnastics this winter.

I'm 6'3" and no one is going to be sitting behind me. There is absolutely no leg room when I'm sitting up front.

My 2 sons rode in the back seat the day we brought the car home...they are 6'2" and 5'8" and they fit...they didn't complain...

It could have been the excitement of the "new car", but I don't think they would enjoy it for any distance...

I did not buy the Camaro to be a family car...

They both drive and have their own cars, so I knew I really didn't care about the back seat...

I have not ridden in the back yet...too busy drivin' it...lol...

I'm so damn tall that no one fits behind me anyways, so it's not an issue Might fit behind the passenger if the passenger has short legs. Bro did test sit in the passenger back on the passenger side and he barely fit, and not very comfortably. But he's 5'4" with long legs so no surprise.
