It won't be till thurs or fri until I can get the pictures up. I one to believe that you paid your money and what happens happens as long as it isn't gross negligence. This isn't that case. Sure it was my fault (partly). I was slow at firmly pressing the brake but the damage is more on the side vs the back showing that it turned in but not nearly enough. Now it's just more so whether I go through insurance or out of pocket. It sucks but at least it's really just paint

I'm not sure if this will display properly, but I tried to create a little diagram below. Please let me know if it's accurate. I'm assuming you tried to park in the "Open Parking Space" section.

Did you:

a) Crash into the fence that runs parallel to the curb because the car failed to straighten sufficiently quickly?
b) Crash into an obstacle at the very back of the parking space (indicated as "XXXX" below)?

Assuming the answer is "a:" I believe you mentioned the curb is unusually narrow (just 6" wide?) at this location. Was the car turning enough such that the wheel was not going to hit / scrape the curb, but the curb being so narrow at this location the rear bumper hung out over it and impacted the fence before you could stop?

I feel for the guy because his car got damaged, but you have to be aware if the system isn't working. I realize people think it should work 100% of the time, you can't completely depend on it. It's suppose to assist the driver. It's a convenience.

Now if your steering wheel falls off your car when parallel parking, that is another matter. That, supposedly, is guaranteed not to happen. You'd have recourse then.

I had this on my options list until I read the manual and then removed it. I like the top view option.

"The parking assistant may steer the vehi‐ cle over or onto curbs.
Therefore, always be alert and ready to inter‐ vene; otherwise, the wheels, tires, or the vehicle may become damaged."

It'll only be challenged by people I would describe as "challenged" and can't take responsibility for their own actions. Driver error everyday of the week.

Condolences for the ding, OP, I can relate to it. Your car will look like new when it's fixed.

I do, and I use it every chance I get. Its worked perfectly every single time. Like MaestroAl said, YOU control the brakes. If he had of been paying attention to what his car was doing, he could have easily stopped this from happening.
