Issue regarding parking awareness/sensor

Hi folks,

Recently purchased model x.

So just a warning to people out there for when you park in reverse. Unfortunately the place I parked, posteriorly, had a lowered ceiling, perfectly low enough to avoid the sensors but also low enough to hit the spoiler on my car. As I was reversing, the sensors and the camera did not pick this depression in this indoor parking lot, and it damaged the spoiler. Unfortunately, 10 days in, I have to replace the spoiler at a certified repair shop in LA.

Just wanted to submit this for other people’s review. And be careful for when you park. This costs an additional perhaps 900. The pain.....

Sorry, you had this issue. I'm not aware of any car made today that offers rear-hatch height sensors for those kinds of obstructions.

Thank you. Yeah not sure what happened. It offered to do the auto park, And perhaps that prevented me from obtaining an initial proper view of the parking situation. I don’t know. It really got to my self confidence though.
