Default Having trouble parking 2007 Honda Civic

I just bought a new 2007 honda civic LX sedan.
The view won't show where each corner of the front side is. How should
I park avoid bumping into other cars on th left and right.
Same trouble backing out of a parking spot with the rear end. So
frustrating...
Thanks in advance!

The style is not unlike my old but much large Chrysler 300M. You will
adjust to it. In the beginning I got out a few times and looked. Your
cabforward design means that there is not much in front of you. The rear
end is short too.

Mess around with some cones or maybe an empty trashcan and discover your
tolerances.

When I see dented bumpers on toyolet camry (I see them often)
I think the owners discovered the tolerances by bumping
into something more substantial (like 300).
Did Chrysler start the Shitty Visibility (tm) with 300 or
there were other precedents with cars even before that shitbox?

I think most modern cars are in the same situation. In some countries,
it is popular to install a vertical "antenna" in the front corners to
show where the corners are. Otherwise, practice with some cones or
other flexible objects (cardboard box, etc).

It also illustrates the devolution of the species. We are becoming a
heard of babbling idiots soon to be unable to utterly care for ourselves.

Sad indeed...

One of the internet places that specializes in JDM stuff has a
replacement JDM bumper (for civics, I think it was) with an apparently
rare option that actually raises an indicator up from the corners of
the bumper when you push a button. Wish I could afford it.

Just put limo-style four jap flags in all four corners of the car
and steer clear of freeways :-)

I'm puzzled why I see no 300s with dented bumpers though.
Despite the poor visibility the owners must be aware of the
fact that they are driving a huge pig and are careful (slow!!!)
in tight spaces. I hate those parking lot crawlers.
Can't they go shopping in something else???

If they were that smart, they wouldn't have bought a Chrysler in the
first place. {;^)

The reason why you don't see 300's with dented bumpers is the huge cabins.
Poor visiablilty but the front and back of the car are relatively close to
the front and rear windows respectively making parking easy. Seeing a
traffic light is the real problem.
