Rearview mirror = FAIL

Sorry, but this is the ONLY thing that I do not LOVE about my car and want to make you all aware of the issue.
The interior mirror is about 2X as tall/thick as it needs to be and creates a MAJOR BLIND SPOT (that I didn’t even think about being there.)
I can see several inches of my headliner and seats… I only need to see out the rear window.
The mirror could have been much much smaller and done the job… maybe I can get a smaller one from GMPP because it has OnStar in it.
I have litterally pulled up to a 4-way stop and NOT seen a ford explorer that was to my right. (yes, an SUV)
And also, isnt it supposed to auto dim on the 2SS??? (The outside one does.)
I have a picture but it looks comically exaggerated… I'll try to take another more lifelike tonight if someone wants.

BEWARE.

BTW GM, windshield space is a PREMIUM on this car, please move OnStar buttons somewhere else.



Other than that, I LOVE the car.

HMMM, this certainly has not been an issue for me. I'll have to remember to make a conscious effort to see what your talking about. I just have not noticed this at all.

good review of the mirror. I will keep that in mind once mine comes in.

Too many to list but none have this issue.

It's just way too big for the space

KILLER74Z28 05-12-2009 10:03 AM

6'1'' and not that big of an issue to me; took about .02 seconds to get used to... :iono: ;) And mine does auto-dim.

Yeah, I think it's more of an individual thing. I have had my car since 4/26 and I have not even remotely thought about it.
