3 seconds of backing up, and you are bitching? You are awesome....officially awesome, you officially have made the WK2 crowd look like a bunch of WHINEY bitches.

You just put the icing on the cake.

Yes because all of us throw it in reverse, punch is to 50mpg backwards, e-brake it to flip forwards, do a triple axle spin, and finish it off by looking at the dust in your review camera.........

Ain't that the truth

So, do you think my dealer would be upset if I handed him this list of things to check when they prep the truck? (off the top of my head)

1. Push in all the fuses
2. R&R the gasket on the rear spoiler
3. Flash the radio with the latest download
4. Flush the trans and torque converter fluid and replace
5. Change the oil filter with one that doesn't have a disappearing gasket
6. Check the drivers seat track for squeaks
7. Tighten the battery connections under the seat
8. Check the front window for leaks
9. Check the sunroof drains
10. Check the A/C drain
11. Check the part numbers and replace as needed all the drive train isolators
12. Cycle the rear glass switch until it fails and replace
13. Check the battery on all the FOB's
14. Make sure the LED's on the doors work
15. Make sure the blower fan remains on when shifted into Drive

OR, I can just pick it up let the chips fall where they may

1. Put foot on brake and put SUV in reverse.
2. While keeping foot on brake, put your right hand on the back of the passenger's head rest to give you leverage to turn in your seat.
3. Pivot in your seat, using the leverage referenced in Step 2, to the 5 o'clock position, your neck should be able to make it to 6 o'clock.
4. Use your eyes and look for obstacles out the rear glass.
5. Slowly take your foot off the brake allowing the vehicle to backup.
6. Congrats, you just backed up in reverse like millions of people have been doing for over 100 years!!!!!
We all get the point, and it is funny. I just want to point out that the visibility out the back is not great, thus the reason for backup cameras instead of just looking. I specifically wanted vehicles with this feature because I have 2 toddler age children and I'd probably eat the barrel of a gun if I were one of the poor souls every year that run over their own kids.

With that said...I can wait the friggin' 3 seconds!!!!!!!!!!!

I totally agree with you...they should check all that! But would ALL new owners be happy having to wait an extra day or two for all that to be done?
