you've got to stop staring at the mirror when you don't need to.
actually, the more folks say it is not an issue (for anybody) the more it irritates me!

i'm not saying its an issue for everybody... just me, unfortunately!

Why oh Why?
Windshield=10" vertical
mirror= 3 7/8" (that's almost 4") vertical
that means that the mirror is 38.75% the size of the vertical windshield...
it sure seems like the ratio could be better... just sayin....

Here is why. The entire look and design of the body has to be changed to make people happy about the blind spot.

Hence they can just go back to the glass hatch if you want.

But save yourself some money and buy a used 4th gen.


Your complaining about something that comes with the turf. Hence people say not an issue. Only the vert will really get rid of the pillers.

I agree. It's not that big a problem most of the time. But at certain angles, the mirror is just too bulky and blocks your view. As the OP said, I can see WAY more than the rear window in my rearview. Reducing the size of the mirror should be something they consider for 2011+ models (and make it so those of us with 2010's can replace ours with the new ones lol).

I'm 6'.

I'm not sure what position you have your seat at. LOL

While I'd consider the view out the front windshield 'adequate' I wouldn't dream of calling it 'wide open'.

I actually would see Mustangs all over before. But now that I have my Camaro I haven't hardly seen any...

Could they all have gone into hiding? LOL
