Hello everyone, I am seriously interested in a PHEV and had it narrowed to the Volt or the Clarity. The Clarity seems like the clear winner except that there is no real Blind Spot Assist. On the Volt you can upgrade and get that feature. Currently I am driving a fish bowl (a 1997 Subaru Outback Sport). I know that plenty of people drive with their mirrors only but I'm looking for real world stories from anyone like me that made the transition from a car that you could double check by looking over your shoulder to a modern car with wide rear pillars where you really feel like you're flying blind. Also, I have a 14 year old who will be driving in about 2 years. Am I better off going with the larger (presumably safer) car that you are more likely to survive an accident in or the smaller car with the whiz bang technology that --in theory at least-- should make it easier to avoid the accident in the first place? Thanks so much.
