Outside Mirrors


Be sure to look over your shoulder before changing lanes:

Changing lanes without taking into account the actual distance of the vehicle in the convex mirror is dangerous. You could have a serious accident. What you see in the convex mirror is closer than it appears.

(Driver's Side Wide Angle Mirror (Some Models))

  • The wide angle mirror has two curvatures on its surface separated by a region line into outer and inner regions. The inner region is a standard convex mirror whereas the outer region allows for a wider range of visibility within the same sweep. This combination allows for better assurance when making lane changes.


  • The perceived distance of objects in the outer and inner regions of the wide angle mirror is different. Objects appearing in the outer region are actually further away than they are in the inner region.

Power mirror adjustment

The ignition must be switched to ACC or ON position.


To adjust:

  1. Rotate the mirror switch to the left or right to choose the left or right side mirror.

  2. Press the mirror switch in the appropriate direction.


After adjusting the mirror, lock the control by rotating the switch to the centre position.

Folding mirror


Always return the outside mirrors to the driving position before you start driving:

Driving with the outside mirrors folded in is dangerous. Your rear view will be restricted, and you could have an accident.

Manual folding mirror

Fold the outside mirror rearward until it is flush with the vehicle.


Power folding mirror


Do not touch a power fold-in mirror while it is moving:

Touching the power fold-in mirror when it is moving is dangerous. Your hand could be pinched and injured or the mirror could be damaged.

Use the power fold-in switch to set the mirror to the on-road position:

Setting the power fold-in mirror to the on-road position by hand is dangerous. The mirror will not lock in position and will prevent effective rearview visibility.

Only operate the power fold-in mirror with the vehicle safely parked:

Operating the power fold-in mirror while the vehicle is moving is dangerous. Wind blast on the mirror will cause them to collapse and you will be unable to return it to the on-road position, preventing rearview visibility.

Type A


To fold, rotate the switch.


To return the mirror to the driving position, rotate the switch to the centre position.

Automatic folding mechanism (Some Models)

The automatic folding mechanism operates when the ignition is switched to ACC or OFF.

When the outer mirror automatic folding switch is pressed to the AUTO position (neutral position), the outside mirrors automatically fold in and out when the doors are locked and unlocked.

Also, when the ignition is switched ON or the engine is started, the outside mirrors fold out automatically.


The outside mirrors may not fold in and out automatically under cold weather conditions.

If the outside mirrors do not fold in and out automatically, remove any ice or snow, and then press the upper or lower side of the outer mirror automatic folding switch to fold the outside mirrors in or out.
