The Benefits and Advantages of Having a Dodge Mirror
The Dodge brand under FCA US LLC (which used to be the Chrysler Group LLC) is well-known for its exclusive line of SUVs, minivans, and cars. FCA is a company based in Auburn Hills, Michigan and it produces topnotch performance cars. For most of its existence, Dodge serves as Chrysler's mid-priced brand above its sibling brand, Plymouth. As for buying the right mirror for your Dodge automobile, the benefits and advantages of these products depend mostly on the type of mirror you're buying.
Excellent peripheral vision with the driver's side view mirrors
The driver's side view mirror enables motorists to see from their side of the road and from right behind them. That means if your car's driver seat is at the left, then it's the leftmost side mirror and if it's on the right then it's the rightmost side mirror. It's through this mirror that motorists can make split-second decisions while on the road in order to mitigate the chances of an automobile accident or vehicle-to-vehicle collisions (as well as pedestrian and animal collisions). An excellent mirror should have clear imagery, topnotch glass, and perfect fitment.
Passenger's side view mirrors showcase convexity and broader line of sight
As for the passenger's side view mirror (which can also be placed on the leftmost or rightmost part of your vehicle depending if it's a left-driving or right-driving vehicle), it's the mirror that make images appear bigger than they are so that the driver could see them easier and know when they're coming even though that mirror is far away from him relative to his position. This is also why many passenger's side view mirrors feature convex shape to allow this image magnification to happen.
Rearview mirrors are your eyes at the back of the motorist's head
Rearview mirrors allow you to get a perfect view of what's behind you better (although a driver will still need to turn and look behind him when backing up or going in reverse to ensure the fewest possible collisions, dents, and accidents when shifting to reverse gear). The glass type, size, and shape of the rearview mirror are factors that determine how well you can see from behind at a glance. This is important when it comes to seeing which vehicles are tailgating you or which automobiles are directly behind you when your car is hanging in an inclined slope.
Dimming rearview mirrors offer less glare and standard mirrors work without sensors
There are two types of rearview mirrors. There's the standard prismatic mirror that allows you to change its angles so that you can see different perspectives of the road behind you. Then there's the more advanced dimming rearview mirror that does everything the prismatic mirror can do plus have the ability to combat glare and strong light from behind it by having sensors that dim the light on the image reflected on its surface, giving you a clearer look at even the glariest of roads.
Additional towing assistance with the towing mirror
Last but not least is the towing mirror. This mirror type is used for towing vehicles and automobiles with trailers attached to them (mostly trucks and RVs). This is the safety mirror you can depend on when it comes to getting rid of the blind spot you might have from having an extra-long trailer or vehicle behind you. You'll better maneuver your automobile trailer to safety with this additional convex mirror on hand, avoiding collisions from your extra set of wheels.
