Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006 Discussion, Front Bumper Parking Sensors for ESV? in Cadillac Escalade Forums; Has anyone installed FRONT bumper parking sensors on an ESV? If so where did you get them?
I'd also be ...
i have never seen any Escalade with front bumper sensors, but i wish i could have the sensors myself. i like to sit really low in my escalade, so i can never see the front of my car. Hence, when I park, i have to sit up and thats hard work for a lazy person =).
however, on the SUVs that do have front bumper sensors (X5, Cayenne, one other) they have a button to turn it off. In Traffic, unless turned off, the front bumper settings will beep. But i believe those sensors don't start beeping until your closer to the object infront of you or behind you, unlike the Escalade park distance, which will beep 4-5 ft away.
i haven't seen any front park sensors, but i would think it would get annoying. i really don't have a problem pulling into anywhere (of course now i'll probably hit something ) i would think just leaning up and learing where the front of your car is would be easier. i know on corvettes you can't see the front, so you just have to learn where the front of the car is.
I think the front bumper parking sensors will be an excellent idea. All you need is a switch to turn them on/off. I will be getting an Escalade ESV next year and I might look at getting something like that installed.
