Does Park Assist even work?

Post by timbray » Thu Jan 17, 2019 6:18 am

Does anyone have good experience with Park Assist? I took my 4-day old car out to try to get the hang of it and utterly failed… it just can’t seem to spot vacant parking spots. This is at night, does that matter? On one occasion it decided a laneway to my right as I was going up-hill was a parking spot so I thought “OK, let’s see what happens” so it backed down the hill at a frightening pace, swerved into the lane, and thumped its tires firmly on the curb; not exactly reassuring.

I never managed to get it to do anything for me.

Pretty useless.

Mine ended up 30cm from the sidewalk (parallel parking). Not that good for a very wide EV, so blocking the main road. I decided to leave the spot again and to park it myself on the same spot. Never tried it again.

I have it on my current Merc 350e and never used it... For me not an option I would order, but it comes with the package .

Unfortunately I tried it several times. It parked at least 25cm from the sidewalk each and every time, which indeed blocks any road next to you in this wide car, very uneffective.

Same here, that feature is crappy! In my Mercedes it used to work great.

Could this issue be resolved OTA or is this forever not functioning, what do you think?

I hope it’s a bug! Anyone else with a JLR car with that feature? Are they as bad? I come from. VW that had a fantastic system

I agree, my 2013 Skoda Ocatavia wagon (part of VW group) was much, much better. However, I only used it for fun once in a while, so I can live without it.
