    Is an 05/06 Wagon Big Enough to Sleep In?

    New here. Obviously. Anyway:

    I'm looking at buying an 05 or 06 WRX Wagon, primarily to take on a round-the-country four-month road trip this summer (partly b/c I don't want to take my current ride, a big-ass, body-rolling, bad-mileage Titan pickup). Was wondering, though, whether the WRX Wagon is big enough inside to sleep in -- I'm 5'11", 180 lbs. I'm guessing there are going to be some nights when I don't really feel like pitching a tent.

    Any thoughts?

    Thx!

    Welcome to the club. Sorry, I'm sure how well the wagon accommodates sleeping.

    Sounds like a personal problem.




    In my sedan, I've folded the front seat back all the way and slept in it 4 times now.

    I'm same height and about 10lbs heavier.

    I don't care for drinking and driving, so I've slept in parking lots a few times in my car.

    Remember, you can live in your car, but you can't drive a house.

    Can you - yes.

    You will not be flat nor fully stretched out though.

    I have an 05 wagon, the seats fold flat, it's very nice. Not sure if you could stretch out fully but go test drive one and climb in :-D I can fit two full bicycles in the car with the seats folded down if that gives you a basic idea.

    Thanks for the responses. Sounds like it would work out, but that I wouldn't want to make a habit of it. I gotta go test drive one anyway -- guess I should bring a tape measure.

    Mine is an '03. If they made the seats fold flat later like they said it would be much more tolerable. I can stretch out fully in the Outback though and the rear seat bottm flips up so the backs come down really flat. I'm 5'10" and my feet hit the door barely in that even.
