The outside door mirrors are small and have blind spots. I've lost sight of vehicles I know where behind me. When GM became aware of this overlook in design of the 2012 Chevy Sonic, 2013 models were installed with the same size mirror with a small convex as part of the mirror to detect areas previous mirrors could not detect. This is a safety issue and I feel there should be a recall by GM to replace these mirrors.
