Well i drove my cousin RSX about a month ago, just wondering if anyone has a hard time looking over there shoulder to see a car cause the back is too bulky?? What i do is just drive really fast past the next car and change lanes.

When I first drove my 2001 GSR, I couldn't believe how hard it was to see over my shoulders. When I first pulled onto a highway, I said, "funk, I can't see $hit". HOwever, after hitting 8000RPM in 1st-3rd, I was sold :)

I notice that it is a little bit more difficult to see, compared to my GS-R. However, I keep my side view mirrors looking farther to the outside and I have no problem staying aware of what is around me.

can't see jack out the rear view in my LS, I'm a big fan of the mirror-check and head turn.

I just close my eyes, floor it, hold down the horn, and swerve out into the next lane. Sure its a bit of a gamble, but I found its about the same as trying to look out the back of a teg.

I was also suprised w/ the blind spots.

For left hand lane changes I just lean forward and look out my driver window. Don't know about rights, think I look out that backseat window? and mirrors.

Hahaha, yea blind spots are a little bit of a problem. But i just check my mirrors very often and be aware of my surrondings.

once again, I'm given the opportunity to savor the fact that the 4-door Integras have NO major blind spots!

The main reason I got a 4-door: VISIBILITY!

I agree, the RSX's rear visibility is awful compared to the G3 Integra 3-door. I got one as a loaner car at the dealer and was thoroughly impressed with the car but was shocked at the rear visibility. The side-views are VERY important.

br1t1shguy... hey i think i have seen you around... I do the same thing just keep going faster then traffic, then i know i won't bump into anybody. i agree the rear visibility is bad but the car looks good... so it's a swap between visability and style

If you are used to the Gen3 coupe then you will not like the gen4 blind spots, but if you drive it for a week you will get used to it.

Hahaha, you guys think the RSX has a bad blind spot. I dunno about you guys, before i got my RSX, i test drove the 2004 Eclipse.... There is no shoulder checking in one of those, you can't see anything. I don't find the shoulder checking that bad in my car, or in the integra i had before... but thats just me
