That's really weird. I personally don't have much experience with this parking assist technology, or any for that matter, but I presume it's meant to work on both sides ?Yes, we have used it and it works great. So far i've only been able to get it to work when perpendicular parking spots are on the right side, i've asked our salesperson if it works on the left side and am waiting for a response.
You can use the brakes to slow it down ?? I thought hitting the brakes would disable the feature ? Referencing cruise control applicationsI've used it in both parallel and perpendicular parking, and it's worked very well. I found that I need to use the brakes to slow things down, or it gets a little scary for me. I haven't had an occasion to try it with parking spots on the left.
Ah that is true.. hmm very interested to see what the dealer says about that thoughMay be harder for the sensors to detect the dimensions of a left parking space since there's a greater distance between you and that space but I assume it should work, maybe pull in closer to the left in order to use the parksense feature.
The car didn't choose the speed, you did. This is park ASSIST, not automatic parking. YOU have to control your speed with the brake and accelerator. The steering is all that is automatic. I strongly suggest that anyone planning to use this feature makes sure they fully understand how it works before using it.I I tried 3 times and on the third time, it when in the parking at an insane speed. I got scared and braked. Since the car had done a marvelous job to enter the spot albeit way too fast, I continued to follow the instructions that told me to go in drive. The active park assist smashed me in the parked car in front with all it had. It was not a disaster but the car now has a nice white line in front.
