My larado x doesn't have that option.

I'm not sure what package they're a part of, but i can confirm that my '12 Overland Summit DOES have the auto-dimming side mirrors.

Option packages that vary with year give you either drivers side or both. At one time both sides were standard on all overlands, now only the drivers side I think. The sensor in the rear view mirror controls all mirrors.

When I drive to work in the morning the sun shines through just above the rear view mirror. I discovered if I leave the sunglass holder open it blocks the sun. Very happy to have found a solution to this problem I was having with the sunlight. It blocks most of the rear view mirror but just enough of the mirror still is available to see behind.

Not an Easter egg per se, but smart and a handy hint! Thanks!

Downside to the way the side mirrors work, is if you don't have any glare on the rear view mirror sensor ( like when someone has bright lights hitting your side mirror from the lane next to you) they won't dim. They really need a sensor for each mirror.

How low on gas? This morning I went out and tried to auto start my jeep and it wouldn't. Also when I got to the car, the fob wouldn't even unlock it. Nor would it unlock by me grabbing the door handle. The only thing that worked was pushing the button on the handle. It was also 19 degrees out. I am wondering if the cold somehow affected the fob. Anyone have this problem?

That sounds like a remote problem. The Jeep, at least mine, will still start until the computer sends out the "low fuel" warning, then it turns off. Only about 10 seconds.

Any chance it was just because it was so cold out? It's still about 21 degrees out. I'm going to give it another shot. I'm hoping it was just because it was so cold out this morning and not a faulty key fob.

I just picked up my 2013 Limited yesterday and the dealer told me that below 1/4 tank the remote start does not work.
