    Id like to know what the turning radius is. Thats a sore spot for most front-drive Cadillacs.
    Quite the opposite. Garages keep getting smaller. The Enclave barely fits in ours.

    Yeah. Me too. That's a huge point... I don't like the turning radius in the DTS.

    As for the Genesis, it's hard to beat.. I know.. Most people on the internet hate to admit that.

    For as large of vehicles that I have, I am garage-challenged...

    I have to back the EXT into the right side, away from the door going into the house, as I have about 6" total to spare front to back. Whatever car is in there (the wagons barely fit), then has to be pulled in on the left side. This is so the drivers doors are facing the wall, so I can get in. There is about 2' of space, maybe between the vehicles -- not enough to get in the passenger doors. So if someone is in the car, they have to get out and then I have to park in the garage.

    Such a pain in the ass. However, it beats scraping the windshield...

    Not for me -- it very well replace my DTS -- that, an Equus, or one of yours...

    AGREED - I never park near anyone. I will walk a mile if I have to.

    Same with the Seville STS & SLS. The turning radius was wide for a car its size.

    That's why I added a 3rd car garage, 15 feet wide and 33 feet deep. A full size F-350 would fit...

    That's what I want to do. Knock out the back wall of my third car garage, and extend back so I have a four car tandem.

    It looks like shorter length, smaller trunk and less rear seat leg room than the outgoing DTS. 202" long was a mid size car not very long ago.

    Shhhh.. That's politically incorrect. We're not supposed to know that...
