I've only had the OB for two weeks. I'll ditto the transmission deal, its just different. Her previous car was a stick so its really different. I'm 5 11 220 and it feels small compared to the F-150 but I'm still messing with the seat and mirrors to get comfy. But it has plenty of room. A note about blindspots, I got the model with EyeSight which detects lane shifts and approaching vehicles, including approaches from your side blind spots, via different indicators in the side view mirrors and front dash. It will automatically apply brakes to avoid a collision (which hasn't happened yet). Both vehicles have rear cameras. The Ford has a beep that gets quicker as you near hitting something, when the beep goes off on the OB you'd better brake immediately. Take my comments with a grain of salt as I've got less than two hours behind the wheel at this point.
