Thought someone hit Onyx in a parking lot in General Discussions Posted December 2, 2008 · Report post We have 21,000 miles on our NA451, and during that time we have learned a number of parking tricks. Thought we'd pass them along here.1. Align your back bumper with the car parked next to you, even when It's a long truck. If you pull up in the slot people will park shopping carts behind you, or use the space to back up into, or as above, park behind you. 2. If you parallel park, park dead in the middle of the space. 3. In a pinch you can safely park at the closed end of shopping cart corrals. A space way too short for most cars. A2Jack.
