I kind of assumed the reason for the turning radius being so wide was because of lack of space.  Bigger wheel wells mean a bigger car which means less gas mileage, or even more of a crapped or angled position for my left foot when driving.  I am satisfied with the trade off Ford made.

I definitely noticed the difference in turning radius coming from my Elantra. Lots of places where I routinely made simple U turns are now 3-point turns.

You kind of learn to start your turn farther out than what you are use to doing. Just takes practice. :)
