Call me confused... but what is all this talk about blindspots? I don't have a single inch that I can't see by properly using my rearview mirror, side mirrors and turning my head 90 degrees. I think people complaining about this aren't doing something right.

Your neck breaks on certain days? Taking a quick peek on all sides (or to whichever side you're changing lanes to) is easy. The only valid complaint of the Camaro I'll entertain... two actually... is the passenger adjustment or lack thereof... and the small deep angled windshield. I can see why people complain about those two things, even if it doesn't affect me.

Good to see that the V6 is getting its due as well. A person at my workplace just bought a V6 1LT last night with 19" polished wheels, rally stripes, and automatic transmision last night. Until then I was the only person at my workplace with a Camaro. I have to say that for the price the V6 Camaro is hard to beat!

headturner = whiplash

My Camaro not only turns heads, but if you are a passenger, be weary of whiplash! Hold on tight!!

The only relationship they have in this article is being below $25k. And of course the OPINION of which looks better. Not sure what you're getting at...

I never understood the complaints either. I adjusted my mirrors and doing what you said above gives me a complete view of around my car... I actually get less of a view in my mom's honda cr-v LOL

No kidding. With all of the upgrades I got for my car, I was amazed I got it for such a good price (at dealer price and not mark up). I just wish that if you had upgraded wheels on top of the RS package, on top of the normal wheels that you also get those sets included.

I get less of a view in my Jeep Grand Cherokee and in my car at work (Crown Vic).

I've never heard of the comments being handed out to Camaro owners ever happening with any other car. I was washing my car today and some guy drove by shouting out of his window... "Nice car!" Another guy driving a BMW convertible talked it up with me for about 5 minutes telling me how nice my car was while waiting in a restaurant. I've gotten the thumbs up, and people stopping to stare in a parking lot.

I don't know if it's because the car is black, and usually spotless... or what. But people really seem to genuinely love these cars. More so than the competition and any other car out there.

I've found if you adjust your mirrors out far enough (just far enough out where you don't see the flanks of the car) it helps quite a bit. Not seeing the sides of your car in your side view mirrors can take some getting used to.

Just as you loose sight of the car behind you in your rear window, you should be able to see it with your side view mirrors, if they are adjusted out far enough. Works for me.

As for backing into my garage I still need to turn them back in so I can see the sides of the car.
