Phil LeBeau decided this past week he'd take his life out of his own hands, and leave the parking to Lexus. The CNBC correspondent showed off the latest in "parking assistance technology" on the LS 460 and although not death-defying, it wasn't exactly what you'd call amazing. It looks like the technology backs your Lexus about 65% of the way into a parallel space — but then it's up to you to finish the job. Let's just say after looking at the video we're slightly underwhelmed. It's our belief that, like happy endings, you should get the job finished for you, not force you to take matters into your own hand after the fact. That's just — well — not as satisfying in our minds.
