I have almost 2700 miles on my car. My only pet peeve (other than gas mileage) is the blind spots. Backing out IS300 is a demanding task, largely due to (1) rear passenger head rests blocking the view and (2) smallish rear side windows.

At any rate, those are rather small complaints for otherwise near-perfect car (again, excluding gas mileage).

Just be careful when backing out.

Re-adjust your mirrors...

Driver's side:
1. put your head against the window
2. adjust the mirror outwards till you barely see the side of the car

Passenger's side:
1. put your head over the center console
2. adjust the mirror outwards till you barely see the side of the car

If you did this properly, a car approaching behind you will disappear from your rear-view mirror and then appear in your side-view mirror. (That's probably not the best way to describe it, but whatever.)

Similar to what JW posted, I adjusted my side mirrors so that I can not see any of my own car when driving. This took about a week to get used to, but it helps taje care fo the large c-pillar blind spots.

i dont understand why most people put their side mirrors like they do. what's the point? to see right behind you? thats what rearview mirror is for idiots.
put your side mirrors to the outter end (most of the cars) just like what AARON said. then there'll be no blind spots.
i've been doing this since i first started driving, which is like 8 years now.

Trust me, after driving in an Eclipse or a Celica, youll be thankful for the rear view. Celica is by far the worst, I am afraid to drive in this car because you seriously cant see anything in the back. They shoulda just covered it with metal or something!
