Your car is equipped with a vanity mirror on both the driver and passenger side. These provide convenience, but should not be used when driving (the driver side mirror). Here’s how to use them:

  1. Flip the sun visor down.

  2. Open the lid on the mirror (if equipped).

  3. Use the mirror.

  4. Close the lid.

  5. Flip the sun visor back up.


If your mirror is equipped with lights, they will automatically turn on when you open the lid and go off when you close the lid.
