Mazda 2: Mirrors

Before driving, adjust the inside and outside mirrors.

Power folding mirror


WARNING

Do not touch a power fold-in mirror while it is moving: Touching the power fold-in mirror when it is moving is dangerous. Your hand could be pinched and injured or the mirror could be damaged.

Use the power fold-in switch to set the mirror to the on-road position: Setting the power fold-in mirror to the on-road position by hand is dangerous.

The mirror will not lock in position and will prevent effective rearview visibility.

Only operate the power fold-in mirror with the vehicle safely parked: Operating the power fold-in mirror while the vehicle is moving is dangerous. Wind blast on the mirror will cause them to collapse and you will be unable to return it to the on-road position, preventing rearview visibility.

Engine-off outside mirror operation

The outside mirrors can be operated for about 40 seconds after the ignition is switched from ON to off with all doors closed. If any door is opened, the outside mirrors will stop operating.

Rearview Mirror

WARNING

Do not stack cargo or objects higher than the seatbacks: Cargo stacked higher than the seatbacks is dangerous. It can block your view in the rearview mirror, which might cause you to hit another car when changing lanes.

Rearview mirror adjustment

Before driving, adjust the rearview mirror to centre on the scene through the rear window.
