I'm wondering why Hyundai decided to go with mirrors that don't fold AT ALL
in this day and age. I already clipped my mirror once at a drive-thru. I
got a small scratch instead of the thing folding up like it did on every
other car I have owned in the last 10 years or so.
Just seems like a step back, but maybe they have a reason for it.
The mirrors on my 2005 Accent fold manually. Unfortunately, the mirrors
on my sisters new 2006 Nissan Sentra didn't, and she clipped a toll
booth that ripped the mirror right off the door.
My 2004 Ford Focus also has stationary mirrors that don't fold, so I'm
happy with my Hyundai folding mirrors.
Yes the did it to sell more mirrors! It is indeed a step back since the older
gen Sonata had them. I won't buy a car without folding mirrors because you know
it'll happen at least twice (has happened about 5 times on my car that I know
of) and who wants to replace a mirror each time?
It is kind of surprising in a way since they seem to be so good at
incorporating most of the other innovations or like-to-haves into their
cars. It's part of what makes Hyundai a good value.
BTW - you gotta stay away from those drive throughs Eric. Nothing that is
good for you is served at a drive through...
That brings up an entirely different subject, but can we possibly consider
moving the engineers of ALL CVS drugtore drive-thru's (at least in my area)
to the bottom of the list, just under lawyers? :-)
