    How to adjust your mirrors. Click download, then open it. Once you get them adjusted properly you will be safer. It's is hard to get used but it works. Try it.

    SoCalBlack08, Just post the link to the youtube video. The site will parse the link for you. It's not intuitive but you'll see it after you post.

    Sorry. I tested it and it worked for me. I have a Mac and did not get any virus. A friend sent it to me and he has a PC and did not get any virus.

    George, Your friend sent you an email attachment. Your hyperlink points to a google's servers (where your email lives). We're not going to be able to see the email attachment. In order for the hyperlink to work you must link to a file that is in the public Internet.

    That guy must have been kidding because there is no virus.

    Or, just look over your shoulder like you are supposed to do each time you change lanes. Never completely trust your mirrors.

    Yeah, but with the mirrors adjusted properly (or a convex mirror) you can actually just glance over a small bit to see if anything's even with your rear door rather than crane your neck all the way around. Makes driving much easier.

    with our bigger mirrors on the trucks you can trust your mirror 100%. i do.

    i set mine up just like this guy in the video does. and of course when

    you're at a red light n such you can fine tune it when there is cars that

    are coming to the stop. the way the mirror works is when the car gets out

    of your rear view it will pop up in the side mirror and when it is gone from

    the side mirror the car will be directly next to you. now with a car its a

    little different because of the lack of mirror size. i wouldn't trust the

    mirrors on a car but the truck is fine. if you set them up like this you

    should be good. i set them up like this and i don't have a blind spot. no

    one believes me tho

    Yes, properly adjusted they help let you know if your'e even able to make it worth the while to look. I'd never vouche my truck to it though, and myself and other's lives to it.

    Case in point, my G35 had the mirrors setup properly. I was going to merge, all clear in the mirrors... just as I was getting ready to move and did my final check (already actually starting the motion) there was a late gen supra next to me in a blind spot, all blacked out. If I didn't take the last look... I'd have hit him for sure.
