Using door mirrors

The convex mirror glass on the passenger's side and the aspherical mirror glass on the driver's side enlarge the field of vision.

Assessing the traffic situation based on a distorted view of the surroundings in the door mirrors
Vehicles or objects in convex mirrors appear smaller and farther away than they actually are.

  • Take distortion into account when estimating the distance to following traffic and when parking.
  • Use the interior mirror as well to estimate distances.

Leaking electrolyte fluid when mirror glass is broken
Electrolyte fluid can leak from broken mirror glass. This fluid causes irritation to the skin and eyes.

  • In the event of contact with the skin or eyes, immediately rinse off the electrolyte fluid using clean water.
  • Seek medical attention from a doctor if necessary.

Risk of damage to painted, leather and plastic parts, and to clothing.

Electrolyte fluid can only be removed while it is still wet.

  • Clean affected parts with water.

Risk of damage to the door mirrors when washing the vehicle in car washes.

  • Fold in the door mirrors before using the car wash.
