Mirrors fold when locking the car?

With the power folding mirror feature on the Overland and Summit, can it be programmed to fold the mirrors when the car is locked? My wife's Mercedes can be set to do this, and it's a nice feature instead of having to hit the button if you want to fold the mirrors. Also, it is easy to visually see if you remembered to lock the car. I looked in the manual and didn't see it mentioned in the power folding mirror section.

Re: Mirrors fold when locking the car?

I've been messing with the options and haven't seen anything like that. I think it would be a great option since I never remember to press that button and feel it's a feature that will rarely get used by me unless I'm going through a tree.

Nope, you need to push the button.

Re: Mirrors fold when locking the car?

I like the idea of being able to look back to make sure you locked the car. Although I think the mirrors mostly get folded to fit in somewhere, while the car is still moving. Kia makes it clear in a great commercial ... great the first time you see it anyway.

Re: Mirrors fold when locking the car?

Funny commercial, but I would never do that with my vehicle. I'm already nervous enough parking next to people and worrying they're going to slam their door into mine. I've only had this happen to one of my vehicles and it was when I loaned it to an in-law. She will never again drive my vehicle and never will she drive this one.

Re: Mirrors fold when locking the car?

Yeah, just saw that commercial last night. Pretty funny. Bummer they don't fold when locking the door. I think I would remember to hit the button to fold the mirrors almost never. Do they at least unfold automatically when either opening the driver's door or drive over a certain speed?

Seems good in theory, but can't imagine the mirror motor would hold up to that much use (unless you don't lock your doors much). Since I tend to lock my doors all the time, on a typical weekend of driving around, resturants and shopping I could be locking my doors 15-20 times.

They don't fold out by opening the door or starting the vehicle. I did pull out of a parking spot with them folded and they stayed, but haven't got up to speed to see if they unfold then.

They will unfold automatically if you go over either 10 or 15mph

Re: Mirrors fold when locking the car?

Good to know. They idiot proof this vehicle so much, I'm going to forgot how to manually do things when I drive my other vehicle without all the features.

So far on my wife's 2006 Mercedes the fodling mirrors haven't failed. Although they do seem to make a bit of noise now when they fold.

You know, I thought I would learn to hate my accord, but with all the nav glitches and bad user-friendly interface, I enjoy driving my Honda more.
