Re: Tilt down mirrors in reverse?

There's a lot of Belgian block curbs in my area so for me it's a life saver for the 20s

Re: Tilt down mirrors in reverse?

Exactly. The tilt down for the mirrors isn't for backing up per se, it's to check the wheels as you are nearing the curb to avoid hitting your wheels. Otherwise, what is the point of having them tilt downward? I always turn my body and head and look out the tailgate to back up, that is what will give you maximum visibility. I love the tilt-down feature on my SRT8, don't want to scratch those wheels up anytime soon!

Re: Tilt down mirrors in reverse?

My current vehicle has it, but only one mirror at a time. The switch used to determine which mirror you are adjusting determines which will tilt. Center position is off, which is where mine remains.

Mine has it but had to shut it off because I didn't like the way it tilts, too down!

Re: Tilt down mirrors in reverse?

After moving twice with Penske's largest truck (26'), I've missed those large mirrors allowing me to see the tires when maneuvering. Love the mirror tilt feature so much that I hate my accord not having it lol.
