How do you use the manual rearview mirror?

Depending on the trim level of your car, you may have a manual or an automatic rearview mirror. If yours has the manual option, here’s how to use it:

  1. Adjust the mirror so you can see clearly out the back window.

  2. Locate the tab at the bottom of the mirror.

  3. Push the tab back for daytime driving.

  4. Pull the tab forward for nighttime driving (it reduces glare).

Tip

Only use nighttime driving mode when you have to – it reduces visibility.
