Whether you're contemplating a pair of ski boots, a tuxedo rental or — as a final purchase — a casket, proper fit is important. The same goes for automobiles. Cars and trucks may appear to be made one size to fit all, but it doesn't always work out that way for exceptionally tall or small individuals.
