My Nephew had one of those in his Eclipse. When I drove 10 hours to Colorado to paint it for him, I shamed him about it then let him drive my car. Needless to say he got rid of it and bought a short shifter for his right after!

Update on this. Running into big fuel starvation issues. One corner I can widen my exit and take 4th early which helps some. Another I just have to live with. It is better if I keep the car above 1/4 tank.

Took the longest drive so far... 2.5 hours each way to Ocean City MD and back with my wife. Mostly highway speeds but a fair amount of stop and go traffic for the final 30 minutes on the way down. The seats were pretty comfortable the whole ride. As a bonus a group of teenagers were totally in love with the car at the boardwalk parking lot and couldn't stop making comments about it.
