Active park assist (APA) (if equipped)  - Driving - Lincoln MKS Owners Manual - Lincoln MKS

Active park assist (APA) will detect an available parallel parking space and automatically steer the vehicle into the space (hands-free) while you control the accelerator, gearshift and brakes. The system will visually and/or audibly instruct the driver to park the vehicle.

WARNING: This system is designed to be a supplementary park aid. It may not work in all conditions and is not intended to replace the driverТs attention and judgment. The driver is responsible for avoiding hazards and maintaining a safe distance and speed, even when the APA is in use.

Conditions in which the system may not work:

Х Something passes between the front bumper and the space such as a pedestrian or cyclist
Х The edge of the vehicle is high from the ground such as a bus, tow truck, or flatbed truck
