Ever since I’ve had the car I’ve noticed that the side mirror is often a bit lower than I remember setting it to. I figured it was related to the reverse auto-tilt feature, but couldn’t figure out why it wasn’t returning all the way back to the original position.

Today I figured it out: after taking the car out of reverse, if you turn off the car before the mirror fully tilts back up to the original position it’ll stop at whatever position it’s currently at. When you turn the car back on, it doesn’t continue tilting back up to the previous position.

tl;dr: if you have reverse auto-tilt turned on, after taking the car out of reverse you have to wait for the mirror to fully tilt back up before turning the car off.

I realized that I didn’t have an issue with this in the TLX because the mirror positions are tied to the memory seat position and key pairing, so when I come back to the car it will automatically return to the preset position even if it didn’t finish tilting back up before the car is turned off. Unfortunately, the mirror position in the Integra is not tied to the memory position, so that doesn’t happen for the Integra.

Glad I'm not the only one who couldn't figure this out. It also explains why it's sometimes in the right spot and sometimes not. I frequently use my backup camera to judge where I am in the garage or a parking space and I'm sure I don't allow enough time for it to return.

I feel like we need a thread for little goofy things about this car. For example, just last night I figured out you can adjust the sensitivity of the automatic wipers with the dial on the stalk. I'd been driving around since June bitching to myself about how frantic the auto wipers were in even a light drizzle. Is it in the manual? Could be. Most of the time I just prefer to be grumpy until I figure it out on my own anyway.
