Report Summary:

Strategy Analytics conducted a user experience evaluation of the ParkSense park assist feature on a Chrysler Pacifica minivan.  Park assist certainly adds value for owners of larger vehicles such as SUVs and minivans, but ParkSense in the Pacifica suffers from many of the same design drawbacks we have noted in other systems, particularly with regard to display of system status.  Practicality of steering-only park assist remains in question, as well.
