    I got a MX loaner to try before I decided bought the MS. Question on the falcon wing radar in mall parking, the door only open half way because it sensed the distance with the other parked car. I was able to open manually. Is this something that is common for MX? Just wondering the practicality with tight parking spaces.

    Thanks

    I have had my X for two months, it seems common to me.

    I also have had an issue with the passenger and less often the driver door automatically opening into adjacent cars

    In a parking garage, overhead cement or sprinklers can be sensed and FWD open amount may be restricted, all a good thing.
    Independent of that, parking next to a car and opening FWD, notice the manner in which it opens is different than in an open space. It has dual hinges, so it can avoid that close adjacent car by hinging up more first then out, rather than immediately swinging out wide.

    Donno your exact situation but know these behaviors are in play.

    yeah, that's similar to what I experienced, sort of difficult to exit without bumping our head on the FWD
