The car is equipped with a back up camera and screen inside. Which I understand will shortly be a requirement for all cars. However there are serious problems with camera/screen system. If car is parked in a garage the light sensor sets the tv screen to the lowest level, and when you back out into the day light, you are unable to see what is happening in back of the car, as screen to do dark to be visible. Plus if you have sunglasses on, it is even worse. Some GM cars I am told can override the dark screen, but not on this model. Also screen display it high up on dash, and when the sun is overhead it overpowers the screen and again the back up tv system is unusable. I feel that this problem needs to be fixed so the safety feature in the car with do what it should. I have written to GM on the item, but no satisfaction from then on the item.
