Auto perpendicular parking Model S

Anybody know what happened to Auto perpendicular parking? You use to double tap the Parking button when you were in a perpendicular spot select forward or backward and it would move into the spot on its own. If there was a wall it would stop depending on the distance you set max is like 12 inches. It doesn’t work anymore.

It's always been useless when there's any traffic around: you have to be the right distance away from the space and creep forward but the car takes so long to identify any spots that unless you jam the brakes on instantly you're past it. An invitation to road rage from following vehicles.
It works OK in empty parking lots although grinding the wheels back and forth when stationary isn't something I would do...
