Hi Eveyone

I'm new to the forum, so, hello!

I just got my CLA 250e premium plus 2021 (UK) and was trying out the active park assist feature on our local London streets/roads.

Once APA is activated, it kept picking up every gap and only a "bay" parking spot including small gaps in normal parallel parking-type roads as bays too. Its only picking up bays or calling any empty spot a bay.

Is there how I can get it to pick up parallel parking spots too?

Happy to share any questions anyone has about my car too.

Thanks

Sorry only ever had bay parking used when parking but having said that I’ve only ever used it to try as a gimmick as I always park myself as get nervous trusting the sensors. How’s car going as a few members here with new model had issues with rattles sounding like stones coming from b pillar and also rattles from door cards.

Thanks for your reply. Let's see if anyone else has a similar issue.

As far as the noise you mentioned, mine seems fine to be honest. I shall let you guys know if anything changes. Really enjoying it a part from the active park assist issue. The 250e is also very punchy...love it.

Stay safe

Parallel parking is not possible anymore or CLA’s that are produced after 09/2020 - 2021 models. They have removed this functionality secretly

That's absolutely nuts that they kept the bay parking feature and secretly removed parallel parking😪prob due to regulations or something. I'll just bay park everywhere instead 🤷‍♂️.
