Pull through > Back in > pull in



Prefer to be facing out when I leave so I either back in or pull through*.



*Unless parking lot is crowded and small and backing in disrupts other drivers.

Definitely agree with this



I always back in whenever I can. The only times I do not is when I'm parking with friends, and the first person decides to pull in, so everybody has to copy lol

Working for CSX, it was actually a rule during training to back into your parking spot. They consider it safer, because you can see if you're clear to pull out easier, when leaving the spot, facing that direction.



Actually I just finished installing the front suspension on the Audi today, pulled it out of the garage, turned around, and pulled it straight in.

I figured I could get a nicer breeze this way, with the rear closer to the door. I think it's literally the first time I've pulled the car straight into the garage in the 3 years I've owned it. It felt really strange.

Especially when I'm in the truck. The thing is a boat and extra long so backing out sometimes is a major pain.

If possible Ill pull through to the open adjacent space so Im headed out. rarely take the time to back in if its a single spot. But the B/U camera is pretty clear and accurate so I may start doing it more since its so easy with a camera
