Had my new Mokka 6 months now and very pleased with it . I like the higher seating position and find the 6 speed auto box  great and very smooth.Only gripe is the centre armrest for the driver is too high to be comfortable (maybe designed that way to make you keep both hands at 10 past 10).
Photo shows the tight fit in the garage , can anybody beat that.uploads/5414/mokka_004.jpg

Dont for get to put some old carpet on the wall along side the doors to stop the odd scuff - especially over the pillars - and stick an old tyre against the wall in front (not on a rim) so worst case you can gently roll up to it and not damage the car as it will give

Pretty much the same as us - we had to change to a roller door as the arc of the old door as it closed was too close for comfort

It also gives us slightly more length for the car

Wife has made me put the ladders along the length of the garage up high to get the car in as its her pride and joy

Think I must have a sunroof as a means of getting out as I don't think the average human being would be able to get out of it using the door there's just not enough room -- lol

To get the car in is as follows -door width at narrowest point which is the door arm runners is 203.2cms and the Mokka with the mirrors out is 203.8 cms wide, so drive in very very slow and retract mirrors, as soon as getting past the narrow bit mirrors out to judge the correct distance from the door frame for correct positioning in the garage. I am lucky to be on the slim side and bendable.
 Thanks for your replies , just love this site..

I've got the opposite problem, plenty of space to the side (its a double garage) but the previous owners built a utility room into the back of the garage so my Mokkas back bumper touches the back wall (which has a thick carpet folded over double to stop scuffing) and the licence plate touches the garage door if I don't get it in there perfectly square! You should hear the racket from the parking sensors!! LOL

Recomend a roller door we had it fitted right to the front/outside edge of the entrance - sfter having it widened by 2 inches per side and it fits great - moving the door gained us 4 inches as the up and over door was fitted to the inner edge and the roller door drops down in its own channel so you can check it with a length of wood to check its in ok before dropping the door

It was at the £700 a great investment and its also alarmed

Or perhaps a sectional door?

We had these fitted a few years back and are extremely happy with them.

They are silent in operation, look fantastic, more in keeping with a residential home and insulate the garage and room above.
