I ordered the car anyway and when mine came in, I have the same problem.

Going in for repair but two cars with the same problem seems strange. Anyone else with this problem?
It's not a car problem...it's a "your perception" problem. Adjusting mirrors correctly to reveal what's in the lane(s) next to you is simple. The general idea is to not have the side view mirrors overlapping the rear-view mirror.

However, getting used to it may take some time. But give it a chance and you'll soon realize that it works. I could explain it myself but this link will do it better.

Like I said, give yourself a chance to get used to it and you will see more than you ever have.
