I have used automatic parallel parking a dozen times or more. One of the advantages I found for it was that it avoided hitting the curb, which I had managed to do on one or two occasions, with resulting "curb rash." So I was quite surprised when the right rear wheel struck the curb when the car was auto-parking at the curb one day last week. That wheel had been struck previously so I am not sure if I could tell whether or not the episode actually resulted in wheel damage. But even so, I do not understand why it happened, and am disappointed. The curb seemed to be of "normal" height and I think the sensor should have detected it. But i can't know for sure. Now I am not sure I can trust it to be better than I.
