Tips, Tricks, and Discoveries

I have ALWAYS searched out an end space in a parking lot. Otherwise, it's a long walk from the back 40 to the front door of a store. Using my respective side mirror, I would lower it to get "as close to the curb" without rubbing my tires/rims, as reasonably possible. Today! Discovery!!

On the 2017 Ultimate (maybe ALL models with per mirrors?), if you have your power mirror switch in the center detent (neutral?), the mirrors remain stationary. BUT, if the switch is left in the "on" mode, R or L, and you put the car in reverse? BOTH mirrors angle downward. Back in P, or D? Mirrors return to their original setting.

I manually set both mirrors downward to obtain maximum curb visibility. I left the switch set to one side or the other. Doesn't matter. Put the trans in D, mirrors came back to original placement I had them set at for driving.

I stopped the car, placed into R, mirrors dropped. In D, mirrors reset upward. Repeated this step with the switch centered. Placed in R, mirrors never even moved.

Reminds me of boss' Lexus. Yes, sir, we Elantra owners are moving on up?! SMH at the conveniences. I'm in awe. FWIW, guys and gals.

Probably in the OM, I just ain't got to that part, yet.

Geeze, dude, I don't even have one and I knew they did this.



(in all fairness, you weren't here when someone else posted this same dicovery. I think you were still battling plumbing or something...)

My apologies. Just don't tell me this feature was on my 2011 & 2013. I'll really feel stupid. Been away for a bit, lost track of "new gizmos," since 2014, or so.

My plumbing is fine, btw. It was the new house. LOL

Must be on the upper trim levels, doesn't do it on the Limited.

Never made much use of it on my BMW so I guess I won't miss it.

I will double check my 2013 but mine does not have the tech package, but I usually keep the switch in the "locked" center position. Will try tomorrow morning.

Glad to hear the 2017 do have this feature.

Oh, man. I miss that feature on my BMW and my Lexus. That was great for parking up against curbs.

Chalk up another point for buying the Hyundai...

Usually that feature gets coupled in with memory seats, which is the Ultimate. Anyone have a Limited with Tech (but no Ultimate) that can confirm?

I used to do that. Now I use these:
Amazon Amazon

They allow me to back into a parking space perfectly between the white lines (even if you don't have a backup camera). They also allow me to park within a couple of inches of the curb. The adjustable ones allow you to see both blind spot drivers and the curb.

The link is for the smaller of the blind spot mirrors. They make a larger one that makes vision easier but takes up more of the regular mirror space.

I need a set of those on my car. In English, "Volkswagen CC" means "ridiculous amounts of unnecessary blind spots," when translated from German.
