rear view mirror

So I've noticed that I have to adjust my rear view mirror a lot. I get it just right, and then a while later it's out of whack. After a while, I end up looking at the back seat. It seems that the vibrations (I guess from the engine) cause it to move out of place. When I'm driving on the freeway, if I look in the mirror, it's always shaking. Sort of like when a song with heavy bass is playing.

Does anyone else have this problem?

Seems like once a week I get in and it is just all wrong - as long as it doesn't get any worse it seems ok to me. If it gets too bad maybe I'll do the frameless retrofit I've read about

I've noticed it, but not as bad as your saying. And my speakers are stock, but I have them adjusted as such and turn it up enough that the mirror does shake from that sometimes.

I noticed it for the first time today, it was not pointing down though, it was out of whack though, i had to put it back in whack. I don't have a sub either, yet.

Vibrations from the bass, but I've not had to re-adjust the rearview

Me too; mine always falls out of place. It seems loose, and I will bring this up to the dealer when I go.
