    I just validated on my sister's new 2013 XTS (delivery date was about 5 weeks later than mine) and this menu option is not available. Would anyone from Cadillac be able to comment?

    Re: XTS Auto Folding Side Mirrors

    I don't imagine there's much to say. The 2013 XTS absolutely, positively does not have power folding mirrors, period.

    Since some people see this feature in the CUE menus, I imagine that it was planned originally but for whatever reason didn't make it into production models. Presumably updates to CUE removed this option.

    Re: XTS Auto Folding Side Mirrors

    When this information was added to the catalogue/owners manual Cadillac fully intended to have electric folding mirrors on the XTS. However, it never became a reality for several reasons, some mentioned here...

    Another reason for me to love my DTS that much more.

    Yea, missing power folding mirrors, massage seat and auto dimming headlights that were on the DTS. But it's still a hell of a car.

    Re: XTS Auto Folding Side Mirrors

    I find it funny how everyone is now noticing these omissions on the XTS just now. I was asking about why these options were not available back even before the XTS hit the lots. I think they are just saving those for the real flagship that's on its way. I can see the power folding mirrors not being a super popular option but there is no excuse at all for this car not having auto dimming headlights when this option is available on cars much much cheaper. I would tell you to ask Cadillac Customer Service, however you can not expect an intelligent response from anyone in that department so it would be just a waste of time.

    Re: XTS Auto Folding Side Mirrors

    DTS Man, I have been told that, in fact, these options were on the pre-production models, hence why they are available options in the user manual, but were pulled from the production models for reasons unknown to us. Someone keeps referring to the XTS not being the flagship model of the Cadillac line. I do not think that is correct. If it is, that is not how it is being sold, nor marketed by the dealerships. I talk quite a bit with the folks at the dealer and what i have been told is that the Cadillac model line up is structured to directly compete with the BMW model line up. 3 series = ATS, 5 series = CTS, and 7 series = XTS. If that is the case, then I think the XTS is, in fact the "flagship" line from Cadillac. Of course, if you have any additional information to share, i would be very interested in what you have. Again, this is all second hand info, and i do not speak for Cadillac, just sharing what i have heard.

    The XTS is just a stop-gap for the real flagship that will be out in a few years. While all of this is just speculation and I do not speak for Cadillac either. GM has said many times that there is a bigger better more elegant car in the works. It will be based on a new large platform called the OMEGA which is RWD/AWD based and may have a V8. The XTS sole purpose is to take over for the DTS and also keep the livery companies who make limo's and funeral cars happy. Also the XTS was a easy and fast car to make since the platform was already available. Very few people will agree that the XTS can even slightly compare to a 7-series however it was not meant to either. Back in 2007-08 the XTS was to be the big RWD flagship sedan but when GM fell on hard times that hole idea was canned and the XTS got toned down. I have no doubt at this point that we will see a big flagship that is bigger and better then the XTS but I do not see the new car replacing the XTS as many have said would happen, it will just supplement it and be above it.

    Re: XTS Auto Folding Side Mirrors

    7 series = XTS.
    XTS was build to complete with Audi A6 and MB E-class..you can see that in Cadillac website.

    original video from Cadillac


    it make me thing about
    1st the seller in dealer is an IDIOT to say that.
    2nd they try to riff customer off.

    XTS full option is about 63 to 65K...base 7 series or S-Class start at 90k...
    it even not touch it.

    Re: XTS Auto Folding Side Mirrors

    My 5 year old DTS has the power folding mirrors. Never used them. So are y'all mad because it was suppose to be there or because it's an essential part of the car??

    Yes, we are fortunate enought to be able to buy this amazing car and people are complaining that it doesn't have folding mirrors. I also see that as a useless feature. My wife's SRX has that feature and we never use it. She forgot it has it.

    I obviously can't speak for anyone else but I did not buy this car for its "essential" features.
