Too reliant on technology
I think this falls under the "Just because you can, doesn't mean you should" category.

Re: Useful - But Necessary?
Park itself. I think it's a nice feature to have. Specifically to those who never learned how to do it properly. Or just to summon your vehicle while having breakfast with family sounds pretty neat.

I'm more worry about the other feature that limits the speed to 5 MPH above the speed limit. Sometimes, speeding up for a short period of time can help avoid an accident.

Useful - But Necessary?
I think this is an interesting and perhaps even useful feature. But is this going to make people unable to park their own cars? I always have thought being able to park a vehicle as something people need to be skillful at – they even require drivers to do this during driving tests. I'm just hoping this doesn't result in skills eroding.
