What Are Auto-Dimming Mirrors?

The rearview mirror doesn't serve as a top selling point on a vehicle. After all, it not a luxury part. Even the new auto-dimming mirrors don't appear prominently in advertisements. Drivers shouldn't overlook the value of these "electrochromic mirrors." They provide a valuable safety effect.

A driver needs to be able to see the road. When vehicles behind a car shine high beams, the glare off the rearview mirror compromises safety. Even regular beams can create a glare. Glare delays reaction time, which could lead to an accident. An auto-dimming mirror may drastically reduce the problems associated with glare.

Auto-dimming mirrors work to darken the reflection of light glare. These mirrors rely on an ambient light sensor to notice excessive glare. The mirrors then react to address blinding light.

The best way to check out the features on a vehicle is going on a test drive. You can do that in Talladega, AL by visiting us at McSweeney Automotive.
