Everything You Need to Know About Auto-Dimming Mirrors

Understanding some of the basic functions of your vehicle can help you to differentiate between common issues and expensive problems. It can also give you a greater appreciation for how your car works.

Probably every driver has experienced a set of bright headlights shining into their rearview mirror on a dark night. Even if the vehicle behind passes, it can leave the driver temporarily blind from the glare. Auto-dimming mirrors can sense a bright light using a small camera embedded within the unit and immediately dim the mirror by releasing a dark gel sandwiched between two layers of glass. This reaction then reduces the glare on the mirror and saves the driver from a potential blind spot and aggravation.

If you'd like to try the new auto-dimming technology first hand, stop by Baierl Subaru in Pittsburgh, where you can test drive one of our vehicles featuring this new innovation.
