Side mirrors when going in reverse

I have a brand new 2012 Overland Summit and the mirrors are supposed to tilt down when I put it in reverse. The problem is only the driver side does this.. Are both supposed to tilt down? Anyone know a possible fix. I tried turning the function on and off a few times with no luck. And the passenger side I think is the most important to actually tilt down. I can stick my head out the window to see the driver side

So, are both supposed to tilt down?

Guess ill answer my own question.

1. Yes it supposed to tilt down both mirrors.
2. I am not sure what I did to fix it but I turned the system on and off a couple more times. Tried adjusting the passenger side down, turning it off then back on. Moved it up and off then back on again. Then all of a sudden it started working. At first it wouldn't put them both back up properly, but I adjusted them to where I wanted them to be when up. Then it lowered and raised them properly. Yeah! Glad I didn't have to take it in.

I thought I would love this feature. I turned it off because I thought the mirrors tilted too low.
I am glad you figured it out.

I've got some tight parking spots at my apartment and work so it really comes in handy to see the lines in the ground for me. I like the feature, my m3 did it only on the passenger side so I'm glad jeep does it on both sides. Just wish they actually gave us power folding mirrors like the rest of the world gets.. Not a big deal though.

That's not a 2011 option, is it? My mirrors don't do that. Not that it's the end of the world for me. I'm loving that rear camera - don't know how I managed before!

Depends on which model you got, I think I read its only on cars with memory seats.. not sure exactly though.

I like to use my mirrors when backing so I turn the feature off. It is handy though for curb parking but otherwise I leave the thing off. Also the backup camera is something that once you get used to it...it is hard to be without. My Wrangler obviously doesn't have that feature which I miss everytime I back it up and don't have a camera.

Didn't know this was a feature. Have a 2012 Overland and never noticed either mirror moving when backing. I'll have to check it out this afternoon.

You can turn that feature on or off through the evic controls using the steering wheel.

Went through the EVIC and found no mirror function option. Usually the factory has all the features working and the customer turns them on or off. At least that what I thought. I guess its not a feature on mine. Maybe it only on the summit.
