Right now you can buy...

Right now you can buy a Lexus GS Hybrid that has 340hp, 0-60 in 5.2 sec, 25/28 mpg and it can parallel park itself? Also Toyota has stated that they will have a hybrid for all the models they make.

I don't think the GS can parallel park itself. That would be the new LS, which I like more anyway.

That is just absolutely stupendous - just seems a bit like a solution in search of a problem, for whatever car it's on.

My basic rule is that if you can't park, you shouldn't be allowed to drive.

Offering this stuff will only dumb down the dumbest to yet a lower level of ability.

On the other hand if self-robo-parking was a required option, I wouldn't have to look at this:

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)

As long as I'm not parked in front of or behind the guy with the robo-parking feature, I'm fine with it.
