Hi, on my 2012 laredo crd, i have maybe pressed that folding mirror button 5 times in 8 months , first time picking up the vehicle then showing it off to a couple of family members, but it's a cool feature to have!!.

Re: Mirrors fold when locking the car?

They don't auto unfold, drove up to 60 mph on a highway at night for 20 minutes and then noticed I couldn't see the mirror while getting onto an interstate.

I too experienced this. I intentionally left them folded and got up to 40 mph before I said forget it and pressed the button. I do find myself folding them when I park in the garage to easily get between the 2 cars in there without having to side step around the mirror.

Re: Mirrors fold when locking the car?

Hmmm... I tested this scenario about 2 months ago here at work. I'll have to test it again and post my findings.

Re: Mirrors fold when locking the car?

I know this is an older post, but I wanted to mention that I literally have to fold my mirrors in every time I park my Jeep in the garage. It would still fit if I didn't, but only by a couple inches, and one of these days I would most certainly smack one.

I have gotten used to folding mirrors and hitting the park height button when 3 houses away from my house on my street. By the time I pull into the garage, its lowered and fits in.

It would be nice if the mirrors would fold and it would lower automatically when placed in park then you could change it in UConnect if not wanted.

And when you get your next vehicle that does these things automatically, you will still be pressing the buttons. We are creatures of habit, which enables us to get used to things.

Happy to hear it is working out for you.
