Have a new 2015 CRV LX AWD. The manual says to fold in side mirrors before taking through car wash. There is no explanation of how to do this and I can't figure it out. Do all CRV's have this feature?
Thank you.

Wish honda would make them power folding. Heck, I think Kia does it on some of their models. In Japan, its almost a standard option since streets are cramped, parking is cramped etc. I know I bought and installed a set of JDM folding mirrors on my Integra GSR 4 door in the early 2000's.

The question is, how many percentage of car owners in North America need the folding mirror feature? I will never use it.

How many Americans need 4WD? Need 180+ HP? Need alloy wheels? Need sunroofs? Need electric seats? Need automatic transmissions? Need automatic climate control? Need [insert "need" here]? If needs drove our cars, we'd all be in buses.

In practice, I've had cars with this feature before, and in tight parking spaces (with high constant traffic), it's a worthwhile function. It definitely saves a few broken mirror skulls a year, in addition to avoiding a good amount of paint scratching. For those who only park in work garages, wide open super-walmart lots, and the like, will probably never see the point of such a feature. I don't blame their blissful ignorance, only their willful disparagement against the rest of us who may appreciate such a feature, already available on Ohio and Ontario built cars (export cars for different markets, same lines, same suppliers, same workers, same everything, except "market research" claims Americans don't "need" certain features).

you can't just order them and put them on, you need the wiring harness and the b-can unit to control them
If you are responding to my comment, I am aware they are not available as a plug and play. I should have clarified a little more, they should make an install package available for those who wish to have them.

I just came back from Shanghai China and I can see why folding mirror option is valuable there. I rather have a auto foot sensor to lift the tailgate if both my hands are tied up carry something.
