Do any of the XTS models offer '''auto'' tilt-down' driver side mirror when car is put into Reverse? if not, do any of you owners miss that feature ?
thanks

My Luxury Edition has it. You can set it for both mirrors or left only or right only.

Another convenient place to check for features is the online owner's manual or CUE manual:
(http://www.cadillac.com/owners/auto-owners-manuals.html)

This was found under VEHICLE PERSONALIZATION in the XTS owner's manual, page 5-48:

Reverse Tilt Mirror

When on, both the driver and
passenger outside mirrors will tilt
downward when the vehicle is
shifted to R (Reverse) to improve
visibility of the ground near the rear
wheels. They will return to their
previous driving position when the
vehicle is shifted out of R (Reverse)
or the ignition is turned to OFF.

Press Reverse Tilt Mirror. Press to
select Off, On, On - Driver and
Passenger, On - Driver or
On - Passenger. Press <- to go back
to the last menu.

This is fantastic ! thank you so much for your trouble - didn't know about these on-line manuals - we haven't bought the car (yet) still deciding - but have driven it - just wonderful drive/handling/ it felt like the '10 CTS that we had for a short time (try one month!) ...couldn't cope with the hard seats ...
again, many thanks !!!!! :thumbsup:

In addition to the tilting mirrors you now have the backup camera to make parking easier. Before the XTS started production there were several individuals very critical of the placement of the backup light. Now that I own the car, I see why they placed the backup lights low and in the middle. It throws bright light for the camera.
