Narrow Garage Width That Your WK2 Will Fit In

Hi All - my wife and I are home shopping. There's one we're looking at that has a pretty narrow attached garage. The opening is right around 93" wide. I see that the WK2 is 76.5" wide. Seems like the mirrors don't add width when I fold them in. I feel like it'd be tight but that I could slowly get it in.

The house isn't officially listed yet so I can't go do a test "pull-in" for a few more weeks so I wanted to see if anyone else has a narrow garage like this and if they can get in and out comfortably.

Thanks!

My garage door opening is 94 inches, which is close to the 95 inch standard for an 8 foot door.

No problem pulling in and out, plenty of clearance for mirrors as long as its a straight shot. But a 93 inch wide garage is not going to allow all the car doors to open wide enough for all but the real skinny folks. Hopefully its a bit wider inside the door. How close can you park to a car in the next parking spot and still be comfortable getting in and out?

Some people think I'm stupid and I totally disagree. But my biggest fear is that me thinking I'm smart proves them right.....

The opening to my garage is 93 inches. My 2011 Overland fits with a couple of inches to spare on each side. I painted a white line in the center of the doorway and use the backup camera to center the vehicle.

We will see if our new used 17 Limited will fit OK if and when we get home again to do a test fit. We have water heater, washer/dryer on the left side and wall of car part totes on the right side in the middle of our 2 by 2 door double garage. I have my Alfa Romeo taking up the right side of garage.

We have been keeping our 04 Grand Overland on the left side and opening driver's door against the washer.

This is a great idea as we both have back-up cameras. I think getting one car in will be fine. Two will be a tight squeeze so we'll probably reserve that for when we go out of town or if hail is in the forecast (happens quite a bit here in Colorado!). Thanks!

Buy a custom fit car cover and when hail is in the forecast put moving blankets under the cover! My new Altitude sits outside so I need to protect it....it will fit in the garage (barely) but then I have to put another car out. It’s a bit of work but worth when bad weather is forecast.
