We all know it's a bus, at best. But I can't find an actual number. Mine is already winterized. I need this detail for a new, small courtyard design. Circular drive will enter a different zip code so out of the question so I'm calculating the K-turn measurements.

I like that idea.
Or parked on an EZLift with castors.

A general search pulls up results such as, "awful, a joke, State of Rhode Island, etc. It's sooo bad that if one has to ask, he/she probably shouldn't drive it. It's THAT bad that it's never been worth measuring. It's the Rodney Dangerfield of radii. LOL

Hoping to avoid taking my own out of hibernation to get the numbers.
This may be the single most useless bit of 3W' factoid to report back upon.

I think the issue is no one has yet found a space large enough to do a complete circle so the radius can be measured....

i like the turntable idea too. we lived in an old home when i was a kid that had one but was not functioning. there is a guy that lived on the enxt block that has one IN his home to display show cars turning during parties, etc. i just crank the wheel a lot to get out of my garage and up the driveway.

I already know I can't turn within a three lane road with traffic, so now I just avoid turns like that entirely. How soon do you need an answer? My car is not in hibernation, I drove it to work today, but will not drive it tomorrow. If you an give me a couple of days I'll test it out in a large empty parking lot.
