How is back seat room? Adult friendly?
I'm 5'8". I adjusted the front seat for me and then got in the back. I had clearance for my knees. It's a smidge smaller than the current 3-series, and more claustrophobic 'cause of the sill height.
I'd class it as "OK for around town, tolerable for an hour or so, maybe a bit tight for longer." IOW, about right for the size class of the car.

Chevy and Ford really almost identical; what's surprising to me (really) are the names way down at the bottom...from what I hear here all the time .
Of course, we'll get into the same arguments we did here last time something like this was posted....is ergonomics a 'problem'? I don't believe that kind of thing is what this is based on, but I'm absolutely certain others will disagree.

Power said Mitsubishi, Scion, Cadillac and Hyundai reported the biggest increase in problems in the study. So, what's going on at Cadillac.
"Power said the most dependable 2010 model was the Lexus RX -- with 57 problems per 100 models surveyed. It's the first time an SUV or crossover has topped the list of models studied for long-term reliability."
But, is a problem a problem a problem? Does Power distinguish between major and minor problems? Some problems could be safety or vehicle operational issues which most would consider major. Other problems might not affect safe operation of vehicle.

CR does distinguish between major and minor for engine and transmission.
