Best shitboxes with comfy ass interiors perfect for eating highway miles in? Im particularly fond of the cheap-yet-comforting style of late 90s-early 2000s GMs.
>>21067571I'm not sure what it is but early 2000s GM trucks/suvs have comfy interiors that give a weird faux luxury feeling. It's so simple and well styled. All of the button placements make sense too
I have a jellybean ford taurus and I'm constantly getting compliments on how comfortable both the seats, and suspension is. Shitty gas milage. It gets like 19mpg with a featherfoot to the pedal, but it's kind of quick and decently stable at higher speeds. The trunk is pretty huge as well, but you have to basically gut the whole sound system or use a cassette adapter to be able to use your own phone to listen to music.
Can't go wrong with the 2nd gen Lumina, specifically the bench seat-variant. Since the bench seat gives you no support during driving, they addressed this by letting you sink into the cushions. And being an entry-level midsize, it has nothing extra. Even the dash-dimmer doubles as interior light switch. Plus the AC-vents are rather large so they keep the car cool better than some of the modern examples I've seen.
>>21068036Oh wow that does look comfortable.
>>21068036I need more shitboxes with bench seats and decent gas mileage. I have my grandpa's 80's buick and the interior is getting tore up. I wanna replace it with something with working ac and similar mpg.
>>21068018They're like the car interior equivalent of a kinda cheesy feel-good movie
>>21068018>>21068106Early Ford super duties are pretty comfy in that same cheesy way. I may be biased from childhood memories of many camping trips in one.

>>21067571what is a toyota camry
everyone in this thread go look at 74 tbird backseats
>>21067571You included a picture of the correct answer. A 1999-2007 Silverado/Sierra/Yukon/Suburban/Tahoe with power seats and a center console. I've bought and sold over 30 of these things in the past 2 years. Only ever owned one with a serious issue.I currently drive a crew cab with 265k miles on the original drivetrain. Alternatively, a post-facelift LS400 with the leather suspension seats are excellent. Only thing I'd recommend more.
>>21068536Dude my old Honda Accord had 300,000+ miles on it and I didn't want to give it up because the leather seats were so comfy.
>>21068208To me, this is just another crappy Toyota interior
>>21070527X2 on GM trucks
>>21071795It's more comfortable than a lot of modern "comfort" for a fraction of the price
>>21068036Seat designed for the average American ass.
Would a crown vic be a good roadtrip car? Thinking of going from CA to TX to OH back to CA
i hope that one day the bench seat makes a come back.>pic related>random honda concept>basically a civic with a bench seat and suicide doors
>>21073713Panthers in general are great road trip cars, but the Town Car is the most comfy of the 3. Better seats and a longer wheelbase so it rides even smoother.
>>21067571Buick Park Avenue Ultra>Indestructible 3.8l Buick v6 (also supercharged)>Smooth as fuck ride and unnecessary amount of creature comforts>Fwd allows it to handle decently in snow>Last car ever to feature pillow top seats>Somehow produced until 2005>GM put heads up display speedometers in them for some god forsaken reason
>>21068524My back hurts looking at that
>>21067571I have a '99 suburban with a pretty comfy interior. Would be great for road trips still if the engine and trans didn't both have 240k miles on them
>>21075938I was thinking along the lines of used police interceptor
I squeezed 300000 miles out of my 01 altima
>>21068524>>21068018>>21067571Maybe I'm just older than most anons, but I always hated late 90s interiors, all plastic and no trim. I miss the 80s stupid faux-wood paneling and shit.Either way OP the best bet would be any sedan that's one model up from economy. Comfy but cheap.
