The Reduction of Glare with Auto-Dimming Rearview Mirrors

Being well informed about the safety features in your vehicle is something we at Lithia Nissan of Medford feel is extremely important. We are excited to bring you a quick breakdown of how auto-dimming rearview mirrors actually work.

Auto-dimming rearview mirrors provide a reduction in the glare produced by headlights of vehicles behind you at night. This is done through a process known as electrochromism. Auto-dimming mirrors contain a transparent gel that is placed between the two pieces of glass that make up the mirror. This gel is then given a charge from a microprocessor when two sensors connected to it detect light hitting the mirror. This charge causes the gel to darken gradually, reducing the glare that is reflected back at you, the driver.

For drivers in Medford, we are excited to bring you a large selection of vehicles that include auto-dimming rearview mirrors. Come down to Lithia Nissan of Medford at any time, and our staff will get you set up with a test drive and answer any questions and concerns you may have about our vehicles.
