    So summon is in beta we know that but hope they can improve it so we can never use summon to park in our garage with our MX. We can summon out however...which is nice. We find this happening because there is a lip where the garage concrete hits the asphalt driveway. There is actually two lips. So when you slowly pull up to the garage the car detects and gives two quick stop warnings before actually starting to be in the garage itself.

    It would be nice if Tesla can add the feature to ignore or understand a certain amount of "lips" or "stop warnings" and provide extra torque to allow the MX to park in the garage properly every time.

    What do you guys think, or do to make this work. Here is the pic of the garage lip

    Most likely the lip is there because the driveway wasn't completed. Usually leave an inch to later come back and top off driveway with smoother finer layer of asphalt to cover settling. The solution is to finish the driveway

    Try painting the the concrete curbing a color to match the driveway or the garage...

    ahh so the sensor picks up the different color? Thinking I might need two of those above because I have two lips?

    I think it does not want to go into the garage because it wants you to epoxy coat it in a pretty color!

    My Guise is that its a water channel, Try installing some sort of grid in the channel to level it out.
    I do agree with you that the sensors are to sensitive and should disregard something as small as as that lip.

    This is happening because the X is detecting increased resistance due to the lip. it will not use high torque to overcome it as a safety precaution. Adding a filler to the lip will help it get over it.

    haha yea that epoxy paint /whole garage needs to get repainted asap. Thinking of adding a more ramp effect to the front lip with more concrete . Thanks for the feedback
