Manual Door Mirrors
Manual door mirrors were once the only option available on cars. They were adjusted by hand from inside the car with a small lever that moved the mirror up, down, left, and right. While they required a bit of effort to adjust, they were reliable and didn’t require any electrical components that could malfunction or break (via Car & Driver).
One of the downsides of manual door mirrors was that it could be challenging to adjust them while driving. If you needed to change the angle of the mirror, you had to take your hand off the wheel and reach over to adjust it. Additionally, if you had passengers in the car, they couldn’t adjust their side mirrors unless they were in the driver’s seat. Despite these limitations, many people still appreciate the simplicity and durability of manual door mirrors in cars. They may not have all the fancy features of power mirrors, but they got the job done without much fuss.
