Passing tips for camaro with back seat blind spots?

Just got my 2015 camaro 1LT RS but wanted suggestions/tips for whenever passing or changing lanes due to large backseat blind spots. I moved the passenger seat a little forward so I can see the rear seat right backseat window but what's the best method for checking blind spot for the driver side?

Tia,

Ian B

You should get the little blind spot bubble's foe your mirror's. I have them and they work perfect.

There are no blind spots if you set your mirrors correctly.

What I do is lean forward as much as I can and then check over my shoulder.

I agree with setting the mirrors correctly. I haven't had any problems with blind spots but it does take a little getting used to. Never thought about the little bubble mirrors. Those would seem to help, too.

What worries me more are right turns when there is a high curb. Those are kind of hard to see. I find myself making more of a "square" turn, or just going around the block and make a left instead, LOL.

I take corners way wider in this car then my other car. I curbed my tires twice on the curb before doing this and ever since taking wide turns I haven't curbed my tires. It takes some getting used to but you develop a kind of 6th sense of where your wheels are after a while.

Volvo has an amber light built into the mirrors that lights up when another car is to
your left or right rear 1/4 panel. Works really well and I wish that it was on the Camaro.
