Kia Soul: Inside rearview mirror
Adjust the rearview mirror so that the center view through the rear window is seen. Make this adjustment before you start driving.
Do not place objects in the rear seat or cargo area which would interfere with your vision through the rear window.
WARNING - Mirror adjustment
Do not adjust the rearview mirror while the vehicle is moving. This could result in loss of control.
Day/night rearview mirror (if equipped)
Make this adjustment before you start driving and while the day/night lever is in the day position.
Pull the day/night lever toward you to reduce the glare from the headlights of the vehicles behind you during night driving.
Remember that you lose some rearview clarity in the night position.
Electric chromic mirror (ECM) (if equipped)
The electric rearview mirror automatically controls the glare from the headlights of the vehicles behind you in nighttime or low light driving conditions. The sensor mounted in the mirror senses the light level around the vehicle, and automatically controls the headlight glare from the vehicles behind you.
When the engine is running, the glare is automatically controlled by the sensor mounted in the rearview mirror.
Whenever the shift lever is shifted into reverse (R), the mirror will automatically go to the brightest setting in order to improve the drivers view behind the vehicle.
CAUTION - Cleaning mirror
When cleaning the mirror, use a paper towel or similar material dampened with glass cleaner. Do not spray glass cleaner directly on the mirror. It may cause the liquid cleaner to enter the mirror housing.
