Re: Are both side mirrors supposed to auto dim?

Would the autodim for the side mirror be standard on the Laredo or is just limited and up? I am thinking my Laredo may not have it even though I do have the rearview that autodims. The manual is not very specific about which models have what or even if certain things are optional to begin with.

Re: Are both side mirrors supposed to auto dim?

Laredo, Laredo E, and Laredo X do not have driver autodim mirror or passenger autodim mirror. Laredo X has inside rearview mirror as autodim.

Limited has driver autodim mirror standard but not passenger autodim mirror (unless the Limited has the Adaptive cruise option). Inside rearview is autodim on all Limiteds.

Overland and Overland Summitt - all have both driver autodim mirror and passenger autodim mirror standard. Inside rearview is autodim on all Overlands.

Re: Are both side mirrors supposed to auto dim?

Thanks for the info but my Laredo is not an X but I still have the autodim inside rearview mirror. Could be the option packages that added it.

That would be it! Wanted a sunroof and the only way to get it was with the addition of the Security and Convenience group. Wish the security package included memory seats, kind of a pain with me being 6'2" and the wife being quite a bit shorter.

Re: Are both side mirrors supposed to auto dim?

You can tell if you have auto dimming outside mirrors if notice the perimeter of the mirror (about 1/4 inch I think) is brighter than the rest of the mirror. You can see that with the power off in broad daylight. When I was shopping for my Jeep, I noticed the fully loaded Durango didn't have it on both mirrors, but the Overlands did. I'm not sure how much it really saves the manufacturer, especially if they're charging you for it anyway.

That being said it baffles me on the kind of features they decide not to offer. I finally found a car that offers auto up and down windows for both front windows, which is tricky to find. They usually either only go auto down, or auto up and down for driver only. Is it really that difficult to add auto up and down for all four windows?

That and why did they get rid of the remote window down feature on 2012s? Its just controlled by softare. I doubt they're saving any money by not including it.
