I would like to keep my side mirrors in their normal position when I'm parking my 2012 XC60. Currently, the mirrors tilt in the downward position showing the road and the curb. The problem is the view is way too low for my liking. I would like help figuring out how to adjust the amount of tilt so it stays that way in memory so every time I'm in reverse I don't have to adjust them manually. Not sure if this can be done but I'm open to suggestions.

Thanks!

I have an XC60 2010 T6 model and I don't seem to have that problem. When I shift to reverse, the only time the mirror will tilt down is when I press and hold down the left or right side mirror switch from the driver's side panel (window contols). I do not think though that there is a way to adjust the angle of the tilt as it is programmed automatically by Volvo and I believe they programmed it that way so you can easily see the curb and avoid your wheels from hitting curb as a result.

You can set the mirrors individually to tilt on reverse in the settings when your car is parked and running. Unfortunately you cannot set the degree of tilt, it's either up or tilted.
