    The mirror is probably the weakest point of this car, but you get used to it quickly, and with proper placement of the side view mirrors, it hasn’t bothered me. I do have all the safety nannies though. Maybe if I had it without the blind spot assist etc, I’d feel differently about it. Still, like you, I noticed it during my test drive and thought it’s pretty dismal. But since then having driven the car for more than a year now, I can’t remember when it bothered me or hindered my ability to see what’s behind me.

    The rearview mirror in on a TWO point pivot. You can "pull" the whole mirror down about 3/4". Then TILT it back upwards. It will give you a slightly "higher" sight line through the back window. I did it and it works great for me. LOL
    I didn't know that.

    I set it the other way around.

    1. The windshield-end pivot is articulated at maximum so that the shaft is tilted up toward the ceiling and away from the driver to maximize forward visibility and to provide more space for a Valentine One.

    2. Then, while holding the shaft stationary, the mirror position is adjusted solely on the mirror-end pivot. Sometimes more range is needed and it will need tiny articulation from the windshield-end pivot.

    In effect, the mirror is placed at the highest position to provide a rearward field of view closest to the edge of the hatch/trunk lid/tailgate.

    Proper adjustment of side view mirrors (hint, you don't have to be able to see your car in your side views) and learning to use them will help greatly, as well!

    Thanks @MurlinatoRR, I had no Idea, I'll give it a try! I didn't think the mirror had that option. LOL

    What would really be nice is to be able to switch to a rear view camera view while driving at any speed, not just the 10mph limit. I'd love to see more customization options with the cameras to be able to set it to view any camera while driving and to have it also automatically come on when shifting to reverse etc. It would be nice to hit the view button and have the rear view pop on for like 5- 10 seconds and go back to the previous screen just to do a quick check.

    That would be a nice option for the camera view.
