How do I use the heated mirrors?

Heated mirrors are a convenient feature, especially for those living in colder areas. In order to heat your mirrors, simply press the rear window defogger button, which will have a symbol on it resembling a rectangle with wavy “heat” lines over it.

Tip

If your vehicle is equipped with towing mirrors, the lower convex portion of the mirrors will not be heated.
