We have the "frameless" mirrors, which are lighter in weight. Seems the 2012 and older ones are heavier, and vibrate loose easier.

yes I have the issue, and I had it in my Avalanche as well, and my niece has it in her Malibu..

I have resolved it by removing the mirror, putting some double sided 3m tape on the mirror post on the window, very thin kind you can get @ pep boys.. and reinstalling the mirror.

just be careful you don't fold it as you reinstall.

it seems to have tightened up the mirror and stops it from moving..

I find it happens a lot on very crappy roads, to whit L.A. has plenty.

I have had no problems with either mirror I have had, I got 2 12's in the truck as well. I upgraded my mirror to the autodim so I have a stock mirror I can sell. I never had a problem with it being too loose. PM me if anyone wants to make an offer.

seems to be a problem with the mirrors with the backup LCD in them, they are really heavy.

all 3 cars I mentioned all have the same mirror..

I have the backup LCD in mine, but I've never had this issue. I also rarely use the stereo as I enjoy listening to the motor much more.

Oh wow!

Sincerest apologies to hear about that. Please send me a PM with the name of the dealer you're going to see and when you're planning to go.

After reading this post , i couldn't remember the last time i used the rear view mirror. I always use the two side mirrors and rear camera. Its amazing how if i didn't have a rear view mirror , i wouldn't miss it.

Well, I wouldn't be able to tell you even if I had this problem. I have back problems and cant sit in one position for too long so I tend to adjust my mirror quite a bit anyway.

Thanks for all the replies. So I guess this is just one of the things I'll have to live with. Do your mirrors vibrate even when the radio is off? I find that when I'm cruising on the highway and look in the mirror, it's shaking enough to blur the image. This is with the radio off. I guess it is due to that beastly 6.2L?
