Here's a video of 7 reasons why to buy a Infiniti Q30. From features, to it being smoother than the A-Class, cheaper insurance (insurance group 13, no idea what that means), etc.

Glad he mentioned the parking sensors. Although they are more of something to you expect to come by default in a vehicle like this, its still good to know we indeed have it.

Being aware of some issues Infiniti has with these systems I'll be on the look out for those same issues showing up here on the Q30.

To be honest, I always thought parking sensors were for people that just couldn't park for the life of it. BUT after driving a few vehicles that have sensors equipped, I could see how useful they come when you're trying to get real close and precise in the parking spot.

The sensors are great for parallel parking as that's my weak point, but for general, parking I'm fine. One problem I can see if drivers get so used to it, they can no longer park without it.

As silly as that sounds, you are correct. People become way too dependent on technology assistance for driving and totally hinders their capabilities in general. For example, someone getting used to blindspot warnings eventually stop looking around for themselves when changing lanes.

Part of it is understandable because of the way vehicles are designed these days which is making it harder to figure out how close you are to certain objects. 10 years ago it wasn't so hard, you could easily jump from vehicle to vehicle without the slightest bit of concern.

10 years ago there weren't a lot of vehicles that had massive C-pillars with tiny windows to the point where you literally couldn't see your blind spot at all. It's just the overall design changes that have been made over time made these tech kind of crucial. You can still get around it without them no doubt, but it does make it a bit easier.

I just love the parking sensors and especially the AVM, I could use it on my truck (only rear view camera).

Well it requires a change of habit, instead of just relying on looking outside with our eyes, now its that and using the camera. On top of that even some more thought into how we let other drivers drive alongside of us.

Who knows, maybe in the end this is good and makes us better drivers.

That's definitely one perspective to look at it from, but the other perspective is that drivers become so dependent on the electronic aids and cameras that they stop actually looking with their eyes anymore and become less aware.
