ok here is our family's problem we just got a new GMC Acadia today and we have a problem parking it in our two car garage. The Acadia's driver's side door is to close to the wall and my mother (who drives the car can't get around and inside our house. does anyone have any suggestions and to rearrange the cars

We can't have here back the car in since she is a woman driver and my moms backing up skills are not the best. any help would be great.

here is a picture to show how it currently is in our garage

Not much way to move the cars.

Could use passenger door.

Put on some of those doors that go up instead of out.

Kits can let it do either up or out like normal.

You can always put another door on the side of the garage and go around to another door.

Hahaha you think thats bad?!? Our 2 car garage has a cavalier and a suburban which has 3" of clearance on both sides of the mirrors going in. Its also got all our tools, shelves, and other garage items. The cars also share space with 3 motorcycles, 2 dirtbikes, 4 3 wheelers, 2 go karts, 4 bicycles, 2 minibikes, various summer/winter tires and parts for the above machines, including 3 frames, a complete 3 wheeler rear end, and several motors. It also hosts a snowmachine or 2 from time to time. Now try walking around through THAT!! lol :flowers: :thumbsup: It'd almost be worth giving someone 100$ to prove theres actually a floor under that mess. :trumpet:

A wall-stretcher?

What happens if you back the Caddy into the garage?

Pull the GMC straight in on the left side of the garage (as we look at the diagram) as close to the left side wall as possible. Then back the Caddy in on the right side as close as possible to the wall.

This puts both drivers doors opening to the middle of the garage and should allow maximum driver side access to both vehicles in that middle aisle.

Heres an even easier solution, give ME the caddy and you'll have PLENTY of room for the GMC :thumbsup:. But really though, if you have a driveway, use it, GMCs are tough mofos.

I cant even drive yet, but I would park the left hand one how it is. But your car on the right maybe you reverse it in? Then leave the largest amount of room down the middle of the garage. Park it close 2 the wall, even those this might be difficult. Anyone else think this might work?

Sorry did not fully read. I have a new solution. Will be uploading a picture in the next post. But you reverse that cadilac into the right hand side of your garage, the driver can then easily get out. Then the GMC can go front in on the left hand side of the garage.
