    I've been thinking about taking the S on the ferries around here, but the last time I was on one in my Prius, I noticed just how tight the fit is :scared:...Does anyone have experience traveling on Washington State ferries with their S? Does it "fit" (obviously it will fit, but were you nervous, given the width of the car? Where did the ferry staff put you...on the center deck or up on the sides? Was mirror folding necessary?)?

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    only been on the ferries with the Leaf so far, that should change soon, i'll report back. of course it's doable, but will take some care, maybe raising suspension for the ramps.

    We've been a big WS ferry (Anacortes) with a big SUV -- Volvo XC90. No problems with size. As far as suspension clearance goes, I imagine plenty of Porsche's and the occasional Ferrari has been on them too.

    We took our Model S on a WA ferry 3 or 4 months ago. We did put the suspension up just in case, but everything was fine.
