I searched the manual and couldn't find anything about it.
I had it in my 14 y/o odyssey, with a small button near the mirrors controls to turn on/off the mirror defrost.
I hope I missing something, and you guys show me where it is. Otherwise, it is a very strange thing for Kia to skimp on and extremely disappointing. It is a safety feature in my mind and should be included in every trim.
The only information I found was a warning not to scrape ice from the mirrors but use deicer spray to remove snow... and how out clean them yourself.

They all have heated mirrors.

Turn them on by activating the rear defroster.

Thank you! Will try it tomorrow.
I figured it doesn't make sense the car doesn't have it, but when I searched the owners' manual for mirror/s and followed every page that mentioned, I found no info. Maybe I missed it.

You're in the US, you (according to the marketing) have heated mirrors.


In the US it is listed as having them on all packages:

In Canada it is not listed on any package:
but... We have "Heated washer nozzle" instead?!?! (I don't see a "Heated washer nozzle" button though)

Living in Texas, I would gladly trade heated mirrors for a windshield with a factory tinted sun visor (brow).

Are you sure? You get snow once every 10-20 years, imagine waking up and a freak snow storm dropped 11.2 inches on your vehicle overnight and now, because of those heated mirrors, you don't have the daunting task of brushing that snow off your mirrors, instead you wait for the 3rd consecutive round of 10 minute, fob based, start ups for your mirrors to warm enough to actually melt the snow. That has to save you, what, 2 minutes, wow that's awesome. :D

In the Northeast we need both the heated mirrors and the tinted sun visor and we get to complain about the heat and humidity in the summer and the cold/snow/sleet and ice storms in the winter - the worst of both worlds :rolleyes:... At least we get to enjoy the fall and spring in New England...
