For those of you with a new CT how is your 'Auto Dimming' rear view (Interior) mirror working. I'm noticing little if any difference when it's on (green light on) from when it's off (No light). Not sure, but I'm sure my Highlander provided me considerably more dimming and less blinding by cars behind coming up and I could see a noticable change from off to on.

Maybe it's the ride height difference, but I was surprised when I picked it up Tuesday as we have about an hour drive to our dealer (closest one too).

Similar concerns here. The coating on the side mirrors, is much more noticeable and effective imo.

Though for me, I have not driven much with it at night, so far. Will do some night driving this weekend.

The auto dimming mirrors was a major criteria for me so now I am eager to test the main rear-view mirror.

Sorry for the stupid question but when you took delivery and drove home was it dark by then?
No, it was daylight and I noticed it later that evening when I took it over to show a friend.

I drove the wife's Prius last evening to see how hers acted and it seems similiar, very little if any change. In contrast, my Highlander Hybrid the rear view mirror there was a noticable difference between on and off. Will try it again this evening, dealer wants me to come back (80 miles away) and if this is how they work I don't want to waste a trip, or their time as I can live with it till my 5k check.

Not sure if I can wait until the 5k check, but will also ask the dealer to re-program the reverse mode [beep]. Read on another forum that that can be reduced to a single [beep].

Have you had the rain sensing wipers operate yet? I was in a light (very light) rain situation and even set at the most sensitive, they did not engage.
For the beep the dealer must have shut mine off and fortunately I don't have to deal hit that annoying beep. like in the Prius. The Toyota dealer here would not turn her's off saying it was a safety feature.

Tried the rain sensing auto wipers here yesterday, in the drive though, and they seemed to work fine, but the real test will be when I'm driving.

Lucy, you did turn your wipers on to the first down position and not just turn the adjustment knob didn't you? To activate them, you have to come down one on the wiper switch then adjust your speed.
