I don't expect to ever get that call...

Seriously out of everything that could be imperfect in a new car, a droopy mirror is nothing to worry about. Why nitpick on such a nice car?

I first made note of this a few weeks ago after returning from a 2 week business trip. I got back to my car that was parked in long term parking at the air port and thought someone must have been in my car but I couldn't figure how...
Hey everyone -

If you plan on visiting your dealers about this droopy mirror syndrome, please PM me your VIN, mileage, phone number, and dealer information (if you haven't already). I'm able to send these details to the Customer Service Manager for your regions.

Since you plan on visiting your dealer in early August, I'll be sure to document this issue too.
