For those who are unaware of this feature, it used to be something only ultra luxury cars had, then just luxury cars, and now it appears it has trickled down to regular cars (I know BMW has had it since about 2000 and even Acura has had it for a couple years)

It's usually called auto reverse mirror, and what happens is when you shift into reverse, the passenger mirror automatically tilts all the way down to supposedly give you a better view of the curb or where the edge of the driveway is. To me, it's rather annoying and I would dissable it if it came standard on the Camaro.

Especially in a car that we will have with those massive rear blind spots, using the side view mirrors for backup is essential for seeing what's BEHIND you, not on the ground.
