My current car is a 2008 Audi with zero warning systems, and I've always just looked over my shoulder. When I see these blind spot posts it's hard to tell if people are just NOT doing that anymore or if there's truly a problem. When I test drove the Y I don't think I had a problem with blind spots, but then again it was a short one.Gotta live the disagrees with my post.
I've posted on this subject before.
Turn signal “discussion” and Turn signal “discussion” - CuriousG seems to advocate not checking over their shoulder (esp. in their blind spot) and mirrors before making lane changes. If you don't check, please stay away from me.Only have a few drives in and only a couple highway drives as just took delivery last week so newb question. The blind spot's seem worse than any other vehicle I have driven. I then realized it shows vehicles around me on the screen (DUH its a Tesla) so thought was good, but when trying to use...teslamotorsclub.com
I turn on signal after I already know there is no car in blind spot. (most of the time)When I signal and someone is in the blindspot, the lane and car turns red and if I keep going, a bright red steering wheel icon pops up and it says corrective steering applied
What Tech_Guy said. It’s amazing to me how few know how to adjust their mirrors properly and how many argue even after being shown the above. I learned late the correct adjustment, will never go back. If mirrors are adjusted properly, there are no blind spots, at least none large enough to fit another vehicle into.
Sorry, but adjusting your mirrors this way only minimizes the blind spots with the mirrors on the MY. There is still room for a low sports car to fit into the blind spots more forward on each side, especially on the passenger side. I will concede that this might be dependent upon the height on your head and the distance the seat is retracted, but I find that it still exists. FWIW, I am 5' 7" and I sit upright but as far back as possible to still keep my hands at 10&2.
daddy chillWhy is NO ONE responding to the actual question?????????? Did the software update change the blindspot monitoring?
