    Well me being 6'6" ~275 lbs the inch or so here and there is a big difference.
    With the seat back where I need it means the B pillar is basically near my head, not sure where they do their measurements of cars interiors but the size difference is more notable for me.

    Here's a spreadsheet comparing the cars. I was kinda surprised myself, I didn't realize how close in size they truly are. The extra room is only seen in rear leg room and shoulder room. And we can fit a little more junk in the trunk.

    That 2.5" of legroom is important when you have a son who is 6' 5" tall and occasionally has to ride in the back seat. He barely fits now. Take out that 2.5" and neither he nor my medically challenged mother (bad knees) would be able to ride in the car. And while I would love the coupe, just not in the cards right now. So, yeah, bigger is better in this case (at least to me).

    That's how I look at it too. I usually trade up every three years or so. But I feel the same way you do...if your warranty is going to be up soon, i'd be thinking the same thing you are. Yeah chances are the car will be just fine, but at this point you are starting to formulate a plan and gather up the funds you need. Nothing would piss me off more than a $2000 repair bill on a car that I planned to trade in in a couple of months. By that time I will have moved on mentally, so saying "well now i'm just going to keep it" is not an acceptable option, and i'm certainly not getting $2000 more in trade after the repair than I would have before the problem came along, so it's $2k literally thrown in the fireplace.

    I'm starting to plan my trade up for next winter, so I know how you feel.

    As far as the size comparison, it doesn't really matter to me what the numbers say. I've driven the CTS as a loaner more than once and it feels very cramped to me. Also, I don't like the interior at all. I hope the new redesigned one is closer to the STS.
