Self Parking Cars-Really Assisted Parking Systems

Hey, it seems like cars will do pretty much anything these days. We have cars where we can make a call or push a button and it will play all our favorite songs. Today we even have self parking Cars. But before you go off to your local dealer to buy a car that will “do it all”, here are some things to take into consideration.

Self Parking Cars

For one thing, self parking Cars are usually at the upper end of the price range. The more expensive luxury cars such as Mercedes and Lexus are the types of vehicles that have this feature.

Most of these so called “self parking” vehicles are actually more like a “assisted” parking system. Here is a brief overview of how this all works:

1. In most cases you won’t need to actually apply any gas while doing the procedure. Usually the “idle” speed is enough to handle the parking maneuver.

2. As you pull forward you will receive a signal when the front of your car is parallel to the car in front of you.

3. Then you will know it is time to put your car in reverse at which time the car will turn the steering wheel to perfectly align the car into the parking space.

There are various models of parking assist available today. Some do operate a little differently than others. It is important for you to check out several models to find the one that works best for you.

Price may well be another thing to consider when choosing your options. Find the model and the prices that work best for you. One thing that I feel I should say, which really should be common sense, but you never know, is that you need to thoroughly read the directions and understand the way the system on your particular car actually works.

Most models will tell you that this parking system is only a way to “assist” but you still have to pay attention to what is going on around you. Don’t assume that you can just sit there with your eyes closed. Familiarize yourself with the operation of your system.

Don’t be like the person in the story who bought a RV and thought that the cruise control would actually drive the RV so she went into the back to make a sandwich! Don’t be that person.

There are a lot of cars on the market today that have this feature available. To find the right make and model for you do your research. Find out what models are available and how much they all cost. Once you have an idea of the type of car you want, it’s time to find the best price.

Cars are getting more and more advanced all the time. Today there are even self parking cars that can park your car for you. If you want to buy this type of car, just make sure you do your job and find out all you need to know about this type of feature.
