I find my dad'* tahoe harder to park than my bonne because it is so much higher that it is hard to see the cars around you.

I can paralell park my bonne like no other.

I back my cars in every day because I can get them into their spots easier that way. The cars 'swing' right for my spots on the end of the carport in reverse much better. I have no problems seeing, even with tint. The 93 is a little darker on tint, but has brighter reverse lights than the 95.

I don't ever use my mirrors to back up, so my car is a PITA to back up.

I don't have any problem backing my 97, I do use the side mirrors. I also have on each side mirror a round stick-on wide-angle mirror, so I get both the regular mirror and wide angle views.

Both big cars are tough to back up, but you just gotta be carful and understand the dimensions of your car. The Aurora is longer, but Magnasteer makes parking easy.

definately back into parking spots, makes it much easier with a car so long

as for trailers, i find that it is easiest if you don't stop and dont think about it...just keep that wheel making small adjustments and you won't get confused.

Big rigs have HUGE mirrors. Some even have a convex mirror so you can see even more. The bigger the mirrors the easier it is to back up a rig. You guys should see my mirrors. They're half the size of a Bonny.
