Best commuter car for fat guy

After 20 years of having a cost free take home company car I now have to commute on my own dime. Commute is Burke to Marshall VA. need 35 hwy mpg. I am a fat guy 6ft 3in 330#.
I can get into a toyota matrix or a ford focus. Honda fit is too tight and the steering wheel would rub holes in the front of all my work shirts. Any other ideas besides going on a diet?

Yeah, Burke to Marshall on the Metro is a no-brainer.

Dumbass.

Lots of large people ride around on motorcycles, maybe that is your answer?

LOL It's always funny when obese people ride motorcycles, especially when I see them ride scooters.

No car exists that a guy that fat will fit into and will also get that mileage. A old Crown Vic is real cheap and the money saved buys mucho gas.

as a large man myself, If you're all about the gas mileage - I loved my 2002 VW Passat GLX with a 5 speed manual transmission... I was able to get 36 miles per gallon consistently!

How about a Camry?The 4 cyl model is rated at 35 hwy.Honda Accord is bigger inside but the mileage is a little less.
Crown Vics aren't bad.I used to get 28 hwy out of my 92 model.
Running around nova I got 22-23.

First step sue McDonalds for making you fat. Second, take court winnings and buy a second home near Marshall for your work week usage.

But can you get out of a toyota matrix or ford focus?

I'd see about buying one of your company's fleet cars.

Think about a Toyota Highlander. The electric driver seat gives you much more headroom than the reg. seat . I get 23-24 on the road w/ 4wd, or so they call it. It is actually a FWD that automatically switched to AWD or can be switched manually with a button. Seemed good in snow this year too

The car he drove that works very very very well for obese is the dodge challenger.
