Well like some have said the only solution is bobbing around like the dog on the dash thinky you see some people with bobbing around to get a different angle. I have had issues with mine and doubt driving the new body is any different especially out back.
Yep rear head rest is in the way
Rear window is too small
Pillars too big
Rear mirror, I find it covers the entire rear window and a bigger one would only allow you tp see rear passengers.
I position my side mirrors out slightly from the body so that it covers a bit wider than if I didn't. I move left right to see more. Creep over slowly on lane changes and if someones there I'll hear that honking sound. The Compass must have vehicle sensor on the side it seems when you move over and someone is close there is tha alert. Great isn't it!!!
Parking lots the worst no matter what you drive. You could be moving, backup lights on and drivers with still drive in behind and past you even though they'll get hit if you don't slam on the brakes. People are not better, brainless shoppers who just keep walking while I am backing out.
I have to keep checking both sides and back constantly it seems. It great if you can park where you can drive out. But that small rear window with the big pillars all around make for quite the trail of nerves. Just keep the motion slow is all I can say and look look look and never stop until you've come to a full stop and changing direction get out of there.
