Hi SaToX and rtkba,

Keep in mind that I'm always happy to help. If you want to have your mirror checked out by your dealer, get in touch with me so I can get things escalated. All I need is a PM with your VIN, dealer, mileage, daytime phone number, and full name. I'll do the rest.

Thanks!

I, also have the auto chromatic mirror.. I listen to bass heavy music and never have to adjust on a trip, this seems to happen between stepping out and returning to the vehicle. Not sure if its the closing doors knocking it somehow or the temperature but happens when I'm not present.

Russ9012 Add me to the list, my mirror has dropped every few days from day one.

buyusa I also have a droopy mirror and thought it might just be the way I was sitting from day to day. Glad you posted this breakspirit.

spazzboy I too noticed the Droopy Mirror Syndrome on the SE model I had for a month. Now that I have an SEL trim, It no longer droops.
Both mirrors were the standard kind (no auto-dim).

The dealer techs told me there are no adjustments on the mirrors, so I suspect it was some small manufacturing defect that was screwed up just enough to result in the slow drooping.
