2010 Honda Accord Crosstour: Parking Within the Lines
September 28, 2010
The problem with driving a different car every night (not that I'm complaining) is not really having the chance to get accustomed to its quirks, size, features, etc. For instance driving an unfamiliar car with a liftgate and thinking you got it in the perfect parking spot only to find that since you parked a bit too close to the car behind you, you now can't get into the cargo area.
With our 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour, you can see just how much space you have to open the tailgate via the dotted line. Of course, if you'd rather do without the guidelines (pictured below), you can easily deactivate them by holding down the "Cancel" button in the center console for 3 seconds while you're in "Reverse."
Just for comparison's sake here are the views of other backup cameras in our fleet:
