Yes, and yes. It needs to drive past a space before it will let you park
in it, and sometimes it refuses a space that looks viable to me. But a
number of times it managed to park me nicely into a space that I was
pretty dubious about. It is kinda semi-auto: it turns the wheel by
itself, but I have to shift forward/reverse (with it's prompting) and
press the accelerator/brake as appropriate.
