Park assist is definitely something you have to get used to. I've had it on my last few cars. On the older Fords you still had to control the accelerator and brakes and gear selection. It just steered into the spot.

Its funny people are mentioning its going fast. The older versions, if you went too fast it lost accuracy and would end up hitting the curb and scraping the wheels. If you went slow it was almost perfect every time.

I was hoping to park the car in the garage by backing it up as that puts the charger next to the port. Looks like it wonโ€™t work unless it sees a car already parked next and the wall ( two objects) .. will have to try when I get the car but scared to not damage the garage of the walls or the car.
me too

I want a Garage Park Assist option. I line up the car rear end first and then let the car back it into the garage making sure to line it up as to not touch the side mirrors. With my charger location, backing in is best but would LOVE it if the car took over. Come on, Ford, make it happen!

Now that Iโ€™ve had my charger installed, a โ€œback in to the garageโ€ park assist is too late for me. It would have been great because my panel is on that side and in a perfect spot for an EVSE

this is a very good idea.

it isn't the same as normal parking because there's no lines to judge off of, and the tolerances are probably tighter... so it might be a harder problem than it first seems?

Yes. With the 360 camera i can park faster than the car can do it.

By the time I navigate the screen and select the side and type of parking, I could.have done it myself.

It works fine for me. I use it because I find it fun to use, though I find I can parallel park faster than it can.

The biggest trick with it is when you find a spot you slowly drive too far in front of it and it will then pick it up.

As others have said it needs to be between two cars. It assumes you're capable if there are two spaces in a row open.

since I live in suburbia and rarely end up in a city, parallel parking is not a concern for me, but when it is, I'm abysmal at it (although I suspect the 360 degree camera will give me the confidence I need). So I am glad the car will do it, someday, when I care. ๐Ÿ˜‚
