When Barry Maher, 62, was looking to replace his Ford Taurus, he decided to buy a Honda Accord for its reliability. But as he started tooling around the roads near his home in Corona, Calif., he found that it was much harder for him to see out the windows than with his 2001 Taurus. “My neck doesn’t swivel like it used to, and I need all the visibility I can get,” says Maher. Worse, the Accord’s domed hood makes it impossible for Maher to see where the front ends, so pulling into a parking space becomes a “guessing game,” he says—and it’s not a very fun one.
