Thanks to an impressive process known as electrochromism, most vehicles today are equipped with auto-dimming rearview mirrors. At Sisk Nissan, we feel these are key safety features and think drivers should have an understanding of how these mirrors accomplish their task.

Auto-dimming rearview mirrors are made up of two pieces of glass that contain a transparent gel between them. The mirror also contains two sensors that are used to detect when light is hitting the mirror, these sensors then alert a microprocessor to begin applying a charge to the gel between the glass panes. This charge causes the gel to begin darkening; this makes the glass appear darker and reduces the amount of light reflected back in your face as the driver.

Hopefully this brief explanation has given you a better understanding of how this useful safety feature works. We'd love for drivers in the Hopkinsville area to come on down to Sisk Nissan, where our staff can answer any questions you may have about this feature or any others on our vehicles. You can swing by at any time during business hours and we'll get you set up with a test drive so you can experience it for yourself.
