None apart from its a EU Regulation hence why most or all cars will not have this function working on their new cars. It’s a shame especially when I hear advertisements on the radio for new ford vehicles advertising the auto park feature!Hi. Any further news on this? Awaiting a new eqc - ordered a few weeks ago, but now being told September till it’s ready
When did you place your order? I ordered mine 20th April with a delivery date of 24th July. Am wondering if it will be similarly delayed. I know the industry is being hit by a shortage of chips so am anticipating an issue. Pain as it will delay my change to a new EQE as I am locked into an 18mth contract on the EQC.Hi.

Spoke to Audi about the etron and apparently that still has auto park. They hadn’t heard about the Mercedes problem- so sure they are using that on their sales patter!!!!None apart from its a EU Regulation hence why most or all cars will not have this function working on their new cars.

Mercedes have definitely cocked this one up.
10/5/21. But through a lease company. Local Mercedes dealer was saying that they put through an order in early may and that appeared to be July delivery. Maybe the week difference had an effect - or the lease company get theirs through different programWhen did you place your order? I ordered mine 20th April with a delivery date of 24th July.

Thanks for replying yes lease companies do use different supply chains I think. It is quite different here in France with far less leasing via lease companies by individuals and it is all still all very dealer /manufacturer focused This whole auto park thing coupled with the lack of charge regulation in Mercedes me is very frustrating. What is annoying for me is I have all the driving aid facilities now and will be loosing them despite paying more than a straight e class replacement would cost. Most of the German cars use all the same bin of parts for the driving aids so it is difficult to understand exactly what the problem is with Mercedes. I raised it with my dealer he admitted some cars came with the facility some without but he did not clarify which models were with and without and has since gone quiet. Cannot blame him order is made what is there to say other than be prepared for a rather difficult customer on handover. Had there not been the big drive to electric here and the restrictions being placed on ICE cars (you cannot enter certain zones if the pollution is high mainly cities and their environs but the areas controlled are growing rapidly) I would have bought my e ( it’s lease is up in Sept) and kept it for a couple of more years but I did not want to take the risk of having a white elephant on my hands and to be fair the deal my dealer offered to make the change now Was too good to miss. But I sense I will be restless and unhappy for a couple of years until I can change to the model I want ie another e class🙄10/5/21. But through a lease company.

Did you not get a detailed print out of your order which details precisely together with the codes what is included? Mine is 4 pages long! I made the order on 20th April and it shows P47 pack stationment avec cameras panoramique then 235 assistant de station went actif avec PARKTRONIC (their capitals) then 501 cameras panoramiques. The system in my 2015 c class identified and guided you into the space but you operated the gear change and accelerator and in my 2018 e class the car does it all. I anticipate that it is the c class system that is inc this time sadly, however I have never used it fully to park the car albeit I use the cameras all the time.I will report back once my car arrives.Has anyone taken a screenshot or a link to the specification page from circa October 2020 onwards into early 2021 which shows that the Park Assist/Parktronic is included in the specifications? I understand that certain Mercedes suppliers are now claiming that the park assit function was NOT included. I took delivery of my EQC in late December 2020 and it was my clear understanding that the automatic parking assistant was included in the specification of the vehicle.
The curious thing is that it appears not to have affected other makes, such as BMW, Audi, VW or Volvo, so the question is why MercedesThe following was written to me why it has been disabled. The physical buttons are all available in the car , they simply been disabled.
“Please note that this change in specification has been brought in by Daimler AG to comply with EU Directive UN R79 EU6 regulations and autonomus driving in line with govournment legislations.”
Hi I ordered in May delivery expected 3rd week in October in the uk…it’s getting pretty ridiculous to have to wait so long.Just to update my car has not yet arrived and I have no revised date yet. I am not chasing as I have a 1200km round trip scheduled next week so will stick with the old technology I know😉 but I anticipate probably a month delay. My lease runs until Oct so I have time to wait. The french configurater carries a warning of a shortage of LTE modules and suggests cars might be delivered without them to be installed later🤔not sure I will accept that. I am aware of a forum member elsewhere also here in France waiting for an e class which is looking to be a month late his dealer has 35 cars he is waiting on so it seems there is now a major backlog. Will update as and when. I would also add that the EQC on sale in the online store are all showing the parktronic reduction code but they are pre 11kw on board charger models so produced last year.
That is looking to be about a 2 month delay then so for me that means it will arrive in Sept which is closer to the end date of my lease. I understand now why my dealer was wanting me to choose much earlier than usual though my current car was 3mths late due to the WLTP issues in 2018.Hi I ordered in May delivery expected 3rd week in October in the uk…it’s getting pretty ridiculous to have to wait so long.
hi allordered my EQC Premium with Parking package/parking assist on 10/12/2020 and received it on 06/02/2021
upon receiving the auto parking was not working, took the car back to Mercedes Epsom and was told it has been disabled by Mercedes, it has the button to auto park , but does not work. I was told to live with it !
Can Mercedes do this? Has anyone encountered this problem? Can someone Please advise what I can do ?
Word of warning ... When you hand in your car for whatever reason, ensure they do not switch off this option.
hi allI hope you guys get a much better response this time around. Fingers crossed.
