As a new Leaf driver I have a question.
The drivers Seat is in the lowest position. And the inside rearview mirror in the highest position.
The mirror i still in my face, blocking the view a bit to much.
Is there a way to modify the seat frame or the mirror mount? Does anybody have any experience with this?
Sounds like our '07 Prius, drives me crazy as it blocks quite a bit of my view, especially people coming onto say a freeway from the raised onramp, the mirror totally blocks the car for a good part. If I drove the Prius more I'd really like to rip the rearview mirror off and mount it closer to the ceiling but as I only drive it on trips, when someone else is in the passenger seat and can warn me of whats in my blind spot, I've never done anything about it. Funny thing is I've never really had a problem like this with any other car I've owned including my '12 and '13 Leafs, what model year do you have? Doing what Garry said might help a little but didn't really help with our Prius. I even thought of mounting my rearview mirror on the dash as they do in some European countries but again don't drive the Prius enough to justify it.
