Just found out I have this. I guess the switch you use to move your side mirrors is the on/off to get them to tilt when backing up. If you leave it in the middle its off, if you have the switch on the left or right mirror its on. :)

Right position should be only the right mirror, left position should be both mirrors. This feature is appreciated greatly during parallel parking.

In my 2012 SX, both mirrors tilt down in reverse if the mirror switch is in either 'on' position, right or left.

My wife loves the tilting mirrors, but I usually switch them off except for parallel parking or backing into a parking space.

My EX Sedona and Amanti do it. My EX Optima doesn't do it, neither of my LX models do it. I haven't looked at a new Sorento in a while, but I would assume EX and SX would. OP is in Canada though, they package features differently.

So angry I missed out on all the small 'updates' Kia did to the Sorento in October of 2011. I've got the harder suspension, Radio that constantly tells me 'transfer complete', mirrors that dont tilt, and my exterior lights don't come on at night when I hit unlock....WHY KIA?

The mirrors turning tilting down ONLY works on the EX/SX models that has the side folding mirrors. So you do not miss out on anything if you do not have them.

Mine is either or also.

Would it possible to add this to an LX? Or more of a pain than it would actually be worth? My dad just got a '13 LX convenience pack and I didn't notice it doing this, but I was also fascinated with the back up cam.
