Anyone else noticed this? That thing takes up a lot of view space. I don't
know how many times I've missed seeing a car entering the road from the
right side from a driveway or side streeet or whatever due to that huge
obstruction. Or is it just my model? I have a mirror that self dims and has
several buttons for automatic garage door entry and such. I don't have much
to complain about with this car but this one item.

I've the same mirror but haven't experienced an obstruction of view.  I can
think of a couple of reasons why we differ on this:

1.  You are taller than I.  I'm 5' 11".
2.  You regularly turn at an intersection where traffic on your right is
coming down a hill.

Well thank goodness you have this one item to grouch about, otherwise the
Prius would be forcing you into creating a new NG screen name
