I finally have a gripe about the Soul. If you're trying to back into the street from a diagonal parking spot, that passenger side c pillar is one hell of a blind spot.

It suck-eth much-eth. :p

Nice alien you got there. That's what I've got and your avatar really shows off how big that darn thing is. It's like having an Oompa Loompa strapped to the corner of your car.

I've got convex mirrors on mine but they're useless when backing out of a diagonal parking spot. I was afraid for the survival of the tamales that I had just picked up.

YES! my only complaint so far haha. I have to deal with backing out of a diagonal parking spot every day with huge SUVs next to me.

Have the convex mirrors also. Yes, a little difficult, but if you don't rush it, you should be alright.

I use those mirrors on our van, but don't feel they would help me much on the Soul. I discovered today that parallel parking is a challenge not because of the C pillars so much, but because the bottom of the rear window is so high. I can't see the car behind to know how close I am.

Having been stationed in Italy during my tour in the Navy (and experience of driving in Naples), I take the Italian view of driving. What's behind you is of no mater, it's the road ahead.
