Integrated Blind Spot Mirror on 2011 Mustang more trouble than its worth


The new first of its kind integrated blind spot mirror for the 2011 Mustang was a cool idea but did Ford ever test these mirrors in the real world.  The side view mirror with the little blind spot mirror has given me more trouble than its really worth.  I have had nothing but trouble with this thing and its almost done me in several times.I am someone who uses my side view and rear view mirrors religiously.  I do not turn my head and look back for other cars as I have never had the need to do it.

My big gripe with the new side view mirrors is when I check my mirrors its for a split second at times and when I see two different images in those mirrors it throws me off completely.  Maybe its just hard to get use to these new mirrors but for me I have almost been in at least ten accidents.  These type of mirrors are definitely handy on trucks and larger cars, I just don’t see the need for them on Mustangs .  I drive a 2500 Dodge truck for work and they come in handy but as small as the mirror is on the Mustang its difficult to make out whats in the image.  Thats my mini rant for now.  Let me know if you have similar issues with these mirrors.
