2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray: Reverse Tilt Mirrors
November 13, 2013
Our 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is a wide car, and it takes a little time to get a feel for where the car is, relative to parking space lines and distance from curbs. It's also a car with black painted wheels. The combination of the two had me spooked. I'm a member of Curbers Anonymous, although I have been scrape-free for more than a year.
The best thing for curbers like me is a side mirror that tilts down when the car is in reverse. Initially, I didn't think the Corvette had this feature, but when I was looking up something else in the surprisingly slim owner's manual, I discovered that the mirrors would indeed tilt. Hurray!
Within the Vehicle section of the Settings menu that displays on the nav/infotainment screen, there's a selection for reverse tilt mirrors. You can customize the mix you want, and most of my curb-rash worries are now a thing of the past.
But I still will go to meetings.
