Are you use the self-parking feature?


Recommended Posts

We own two contemporary Mercedes vehicles, both equipped with the autonomous parking feature. With the exception of the first few days when we tested the system, it works well. However, I am certain that I am able to park the vehicle in a place more swiftly than it can. Consequently, we have not used it since the first week, and I may not even be able to activate the feature at now.
Is the function used often by anyone?
Furthermore, are you unwilling to make the effort to modify the dashboard layout despite having exhausted all available alternatives when it was first introduced?
We are no longer interested in adjusting the interior lighting hue. Hello Mercedes, as all of our acquaintances have seen its functionality. 🙂

Which gadgets on your automobile have you stopped using, or are we part of a small group?

I had significant scepticism about the auto park option on our new Volkswagen. After testing it, I was quite impressed - it works flawlessly. The sluggish speed is mostly due to safety concerns, since there is a reluctance to rapidly advance a 2-ton vehicle near another 2-ton vehicle in an area often used by people. My spouse use it on a regular basis. I believe it is detrimental for individuals to depend on it, since it will inevitably lead to the erosion of this capacity in the future.

The automobile is equipped with ventilated seats for added comfort, however I have only used them on a few occasions throughout the 12 years that I have had the vehicle. However, that amount is five times more than the number of times I have used the parking help.

I have never had a vehicle with self-parking capabilities, but I am very certain that even if I did, I would not place my confidence in it. Even if I wasn't the one driving, I would still be legally responsible if the vehicle caused damage to anything.....I would like to intentionally cause the accident myself! Furthermore, judging by my acquaintance's vehicle, it is remarkably sluggish.....insufficiently fast to navigate a congested road while inconveniencing other motorists who must wait for it to autonomously find a parking spot.

I mock friends who attempt to boast about these assistive devices by referring to them as "aids for the elderly". However, it is worth mentioning that although my vehicle might have been equipped with the self-parking feature, it only has the guiding system. I find it enjoyable to use when the car advises it, as mentioned by the original poster.

It seems that the majority of the items that suit me are neither useful or valuable to me. However, I see the aforementioned amenities as mere accessories, rather than the primary motivation for purchasing the automobile. The primary purpose of the vehicle is to provide a satisfactory long-distance driving experience, which it does well. However, I must confess that I seldom use its maximum capabilities. I am still unable to use the adaptive cruise control feature. Despite attempting to use it on many vehicles, I still lack confidence in its functionality. I prefer the older version of cruise control, similar to the one I had on my previous W201 model.

Disclaimer: I have a strong inclination towards my established habits and now prefer walking over driving. When I have to travel within the local area, I prefer to use my vintage (1970) Ford pickup truck, which lacks complex technological systems and has low fuel consumption. I save the usage of my Mercedes for longer journeys (over 100 miles) and vehicle gatherings. Indeed, the most recent occurrence of it going out was at Benz on the Green in early May. This enhances the significance of the event for me, since the environment remains quite pleasant and conducive to relaxation.

Apologies for my digression.

I now own a BMW. I am aware of this fact.
I have not yet had the opportunity to test the self-parking feature. Survived without it for half a century.
I have never used the television in any of my previous three vehicles.
I have never had a like for sun roofs.
Steering wheel equipped with gear paddles.
The aforementioned components were present in the automobile at the time of my purchase.

I have the self-parking feature on my just acquired Nissan Townstar EV van. I have never tried to use the 'self park' feature since it already emits sufficient warning noises when I park in a spot that was previously occupied by a Mini!!! I question if it would even endeavour to access some of the locations that I am able to fit into. Eager to give it a try, however.

Like the original poster, we all appreciate well-equipped automobiles. However, I myself seldom use any of the advanced features. on fact, I am an exceptional case since I have never utilised the cruise control function on my vehicle.

I often use the self-parking feature in our V class vehicle. It works efficiently and effectively once one becomes accustomed to it. However, my wife, on the other, does not like it and instead loves the aesthetic of having wheels that seem worn or damaged.Furthermore, the self-park feature is incapable of doing that task.
