I have to adjust mine every couple of days, too. I really didn't notice it for the first couple of weeks of ownership.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

WOW!!! I thought it was just me. I have the exact same issue ever morning I get in. I thought I was setting in the seat higher then I was the day before!

I've also noticed that I have to adjust my mirror up everything I get in my Ram (and I'm the only one that drives it). I don't think I've ever adjusted the mirror in my Explorer. I think I'll go put a laser sight on it when I park it at night and see where the laser hits in the morning. I think I'll aim for the little light sensing dot.

Yup, I adjust my mirror in the AM and in the PM for perfect alignment.

I have noticed this with pretty well every vehicle I have ever driven and never really thought anything of it.

Do these mirrors not have screws or anything? I have never had that issue with my '11 and never really looked hard at the mirror

So how do you explain this to the Dealer - My mirror falls down and it can't get up?

Same here... I'm thinking the slamming of the doors is making it drop a little... but I have to adjust it every time I get in to drive
