We have two hondas in our garage - 2006 CRV EX, 2001 Accord V6, plus Honda mower, trimer, snowblower.
My daughter is getting my Accord for her 16th. birthday, and i am considering CT. I've seen many complains about blind spot on CT, does anybody have this problem?:confused:

Good question. Yes the rear window is small and the "C" pillar is large but I have about 1200 miles on my car and find that I am used to it. You set your mirrors correctly and use them more. We had a 36' motor home, now that had blind spots. If you are worried about parking and backing up, get the Nav option with back up camera. Drive one and see for yourself.

Yes there are blind spots and they are large but one can always adjust one's driving to accommodate them. After 450 (soft) mixed hwy/cty miles it hasn't really been a problem (as far as switching lanes and such). I don't parallel park a lot so maybe someone else can speak to that.

The only blind spot exists in the minds and attitudes of Crosstour bashers who slavishly believe in the gospel according to Facebook and its mindless followers. If they'd get their get their heads out of their nether orifices and actually look at, touch, feel and drive a CT instead of glancing at an unflattering photograph and shallowly proclaiming it the ugliest car they ever saw, they might actually buy one. Imagine that!

I'm having a harder time adjusting to the dimensions of the car than the blind spots. Like others have said you get used to knowing where the blind spots are pretty quickly.

I can't get used to where the rear end is, but I drive an F250 with an 8' bed more often than not lol

The blind spot thing is minimal, my mustang has them, and I got used to them, the CT was EASY to get used to.

The blind spots are no big deal. I also have a Ridgeline, and it was worse even before I added a camper shell...the CT's blind spots are easy to get used to. Proper side rear view mirror adjustment helps.

Agreed. The CT does have the smallest visual field of all the cars I've ever drived, but it doesn't take long at all to get used to. I got used to it during my first drive.

Much better rearward visibility than many more expensive cars...try a Lambo, a Ferrari, a Ford GT or a Veyron...and then talk about blind spots! You never knew how good you had it!

I drive in city traffic every day and the blind spot really hasn't been a problem. You do have to use your mirrors, but you quickly get used to it and no longer give it much thought. I did worry about it quite a bit before buying the CT, but it is certainly better than driving a pickup with a camper top, and that didn't cause me (or anyone else, I think) much problem.
