The Gen 5 Camry had folding mirrors in other countries.EchoHoLiK said:I think the lack of folding mirrors is based on the model. The gen3 Camry I used to drive was imported from Japan, but didn't have folding mirrors. I think the entire lineup of Camrys don't have folding mirrors, maybe because that particular market doesn't demand them.
I think they should put folding mirrors on ALL the lineup of cars.
Costs could be another issue? It's cheaper if the mirrors don't need to fold.
Yeah, it's always the dumbass marketing department, always thinking they know what the consumer really wantsTideland Prius said:The Gen 5 Camry had folding mirrors in other countries.
It's based on the local (read country's) marketing team. If they think we don't need it, they tell Toyota that and Toyota doesn't include it.
Although isn't it more expensive to have 2 types of mirrors? I mean, yeah they have to make two different types of mirror glass but mirror housing too?
I'd love to have power folding mirrors. All the cars we had that had folding mirrors were manual folding.
I agree, I have a fullsize truck that has them and have yet to fold them in once. I can see the need for them on fullsize and midsize trucks, and maybe even on big full size cars and SUV's, but on the camry and corolla... seriously, what's the point? Are you people parking in 5' wide garages?atobe said:it's to save $... why add a feature that's not needed.....my friend's LS430 has folding mirrors though.... my gen2 has manual folding mirrors...

Nope I don’t think so.Things are bigger in the US, like roads and parking spaces. We don't need them.
