My side mirrors have started behaving differently.

When I 1st started with the car when backing up the side mirrors would tilt down to help see lines. They no longer tilt down in reverse.

No idea what I changed in the settings if anything to make this happen. Any ideas?

I'll answer my own question, may help others. After googling the problem easy solution. The L/R button to select which mirror you are adjusting can not be in the center if you want the mirrors to adjust when you're in reverse. If you slide the switch to the center the mirrors move back up for a different view.

Lol... Bingo. Same thing happened to me. For them to tilt, the L/R button shouldn't be in the middle.
Is this on all models or just a Canadian thing? I'm waiting for my US GT Line to come in next week.

I think it applies to all models. If you have the mirror selector button set to L or R, both mirrors will tilt down when in reverse. It won't matter which side is selected (both mirrors tilt, not just the side you selected).

So this does not apply to all models in the US, my GT-Line does not have this feature, I checked over the weekend.

I'm surprised at the differences in options on the various trims between Canada and the States. Especially considering they are built at the same factory and presumably on the same line.

In Canada basically no option packages just different trim levels and only black interior.
