Default Mattamy Waterside garage too small for car

Any waterside owners here having issues with their garage being too small for a regular sedan car?
I think they received a lot of complains and they updated their floor plan to say "storage" now instead of garage

it definitely would be too small for a car at 16' long. That seems like a huge design oversight. Mattamy definitely skimps on garage space but that is ridiculous!

if it is possible to get the car in the garage Id recommend a laser pointer park assist on the ceiling to make it easier

There is actually a complaint about the garage size to the municipal government for the Mattamy Development in Downsview (Toronto area). It was in the news today (680 news Radio - no link sorry).

Looks like this is a bigger problem than just Ottawa.

All kinds of deficiencies listed as well (water leaks, mold, etc)

We have a Valleyfield and we can fit two cars (Mazda 3 and a Mazda Cx7 CUV) in it but we really just put the one car in since we have junk on the other side.
