Is it possible to fold the MDX side mirrors?
They look like they are folding mirrors, but
I can't find any description of how to fold
them in the manuals, and don't want to try
without knowing exactly how.

They are manually-folded. Just push it up slightly and in.
MDX being as wide as it is, I usually fold the road-facing mirror when I park. Then, I usually forget to open it back. (especially the passenger side one).
I read somewhere that SLX (AKA Isuzu Trooper) had automatic folding mirrors. That would have been nice....

You just grab it and pull it either forward or back. They don't appear to be fragile or flimsy. I already "folded" the passenger side using my garage wall (fortunately, I "carpeted" the wall just in case) and it bent in on impact like it was supposed to and was fine when I snapped it back.

Friend of mine just picked up his LS430-mirrors fold automatically soon as you shut the car off! un fold out when key is turned back on!! Nice- but paid $56,000.00 w/nav.

Non-folding mirrors?

Anyone seen the MDX with non-folding side mirrors?

Back in October when I went to the first MDX introductions at local dealers, the MDX that I saw had NON-folding side mirrors!! I thought that was a pretty stupid design idea. But we bought it anyways, and was pleasantly surprised when the new MDX had the folding mirrors.

For Us Newbie X Owners

Just in case some of the other new '02 owners did not realize this.... the mirrors do fold back... My salesman said they did not fold, but after a visit to a local shopping area, I came back to the car and found the driver mirror folded back...

Obviously, from the age of the previous posts... this was a feature in the '01 mdx as well...
