    Mirror Extenders for towing

    Does anyone have an opinion on what mirror extenders to get or not to get for a 2016 CX-9? I will be towing my pop up for a longer upcoming trip, and while I can see along it rearwards, I would not mind seeing a bit more behind me. TIA

    Windshield made of sugar???

    I have had 2 chips and today got a crack in my windshield, 34000 miles on the car. My old Jetta had 210000 miles on it when I traded it in and never had a chip or crack. Has anyone else had excessive windshield damage with their car?

    DRSS in HUD
