5.0 Car Length?????????

Can someone with a 5.0 measure the length for me? I know its silly but I've got a tandem garage and am hoping it will fit with the space I have left. I've seen online the length is supposed to be 188.1 inches but I want to be absolutely sure. (It wouldn't cause me to cancel the order but I want to not have to worry about it).

If someone could break out the tape measure I would be extremely grateful.

Thanks!

Thanks. Maybe I'm paranoid but I was hoping for someone to measure it bumper to bumper and tell me how long it was. I'm assuming this is how Ford measures it (the longest point to longest point). I'd like it if someone could tell me how much space I'd need for it.

Anyone willing to humor me for a minute??

I would if my car would ever get here . Have you measured the garage yet? Realistically, you dont want the measurement to be so close that you cant trust the published numbers. If ford says 188", I wouldnt park it in a garage under 200".

There are 10 types of people in the world. Those who understand binary, and those who do not.

Yah I've got 198-200 inches to park it in. I'd feel comfortable if it was 195 or less though. This is exactly why I'd like a real world example.

They aren't going to be off by 6 inches... maybe a couple tenths of an inch, but that would be it. If you want it under 195", you got it.

tell the dealer you want to test drive a 2010 - bring it home and see how it parks

If someone measures their car I'll give them a dollar (must come to washington to get it from me)
