I own a 2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer ltz, purchased brand new in the spring of 2002. In the early part of 2003, my side view mirrors, which are equipped to have memory options such as reverse curbview assist, started malfunctioning. The mirrors would no longer hold their memory, resulting in an adjustment to both mirrors every time I got in the car. Sometimes the mirrors would appear to get stuck and make a clicking noise. Dangerously, sometimes I would look to change lanes and realize my mirrors were not correct--they might be pointing up at the sky or down at the ground. Eventually, I quit using the reverse curbview assist option (where the mirrors tilt down to help to parallel park when in reverse) because I was hoping that not moving the mirrors at all would help. The local dealership replaced the actuators in 2003 and reset the transmitter recently on 9/20/06. This helped the memory mirrors for some time. But now, I am bringing the car into the dealership for the third time for the same problem on 12/13/06--one or both mirrors will not hold their memory and I have to readjust them. The dealership is lost as to how to fix the problem and does not acknowledge this as a prevalent problem, although I have printed out numerous complaints about the mirrors found on-line from consumers. I am not sure if the problem is computer related or parts related, but obviously replacing parts (the actuators) did not permanently fix this problem. This is a safety issue when you expect your mirrors to be in the correct position for lane changing and they are not; it is also an extreme annoyance for what is supposed to be a nice SUV with a nice price tag.

Failure Date: 03/23/2005

I just purchased a 2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer in January of this year. The problem is that the driver's side visor has an uncovered mirror on it. When I pull the visor down to block the sun, the mirror reflects my hands and lap which is a distraction while driving. I called the customer service person at general motors (joohee kim). She said that there is nothing that could be done about replacing the visor with one with no mirror or one with a covered mirror. I looked at several other SUV's and trucks at my dealership and the Trailblazer is the only one with an uncovered mirror. I have never owned or seen an automobile with an uncovered mirror on the driver's side. I am very concerend about this problem and believe that it has the potential of being a big safety hazard.

Consumer states is having trouble with adjustable mirrors. Mirrors move while driving sometimes which does not allow consumer to see vehicles on either side of him. He has had a couple of near accidents because after the mirrors were adjusted while driving they readjusted by themselves. Vehicle has been in repair shop 4-5 times for the same thing, and was told they could not fix the problem.

My vehicle is equipped with outside mirrors that have a position memory for each driver. When I use the keyless remote entry. They are supposed to return to the last memorized position. Instead, they consistently move to an extreme position, make a loud clicking sound. Then stick in that position. Several times I've found myself tring to change lanes in traffic without the use of my side mirrors because they are pointing toward the pavement. The dealer is unable to fix the problem. Chevrolet is aware of the defect and has corrected it on the 2003 model, but refuses to fix my vehicle. Dt.
