Trouble parking my Volt (straight)
I'm having trouble getting the Volt straight and even in parking spaces. I usually end up way over to the right side of the space, or sometimes just crooked. I'm getting better (after 3 months), but still can't manage to park consistently. I never had this problem with any other car I've owned and I think it might be because I can't see any exterior part of the car from the driver's position. Even leaning full forward, I can't see the hood. Without a visual reference point, it's hard to tell whether the car is straight or not. Sometimes, when I think I've done a masterful job of parking, I get out of the car to find I'm several degrees off, way over to the right, and 3 feet from the front of the parking space! Maybe I need to stop concentrating so much and just use the "Force"!
Looking on the bright side though, this is my only complaint about my new Volt, and it's not even the Volt's fault! I just washed her this morning and it's a beautiful day, so maybe I'll drive up to the grocery store parking lot and practice parking.
BTW, my new nickname is Crappy Parker.
