Has anyone managed to lower their rear view mirror?  For me, it's too high, and so I can't see very far down the road behind me.

 

Yes, I can adjust the angle depending on where my head is, but that doesn't change the line of sight from mirror out the back window.

I tried to explain that it doesn't work.  That doesn't change what the mirror can see, it just changes the angle I turn the mirror to point squarely out the back window.

 

Think about it as putting your eyes where the mirror is, looking backwards.

Not sure what you think the issue is.  If you look at the car from straight behind, the rear view mirror is smack dab in the middle of the rear window, top to bottom.  I don't have any issues with vision behind, and have heard no complaints of this from anyone else either.  In fact, the visibility in this car is way beyond most vehicles.

On my 2013, the mirror is noticeably higher.  Dangit, how do I include pix?

Yeah, I've also noticed the same thing with my '13. On a completely flat road I can see so far back and then stops. No horizon to be seen.
