Dipping Mirror on Reverse

Post by Ethanboothroyd » Fri May 03, 2019 8:42 pm

Hi

Just seeing if anyone else has experience this before the passenger side mirror when it dips down when I put the car in reverse all ok but when you drive off every now and again it stays in the kerb position and I have to move it by the mirror adjustment I dose not do it all the time but every now and again any suggestions or is it a dealer visit

Dealer visit.
Mine has been doing it since the new year, 7 times in the workshop, still not cured. They have changed the mirror mechanism, the control box in the door, plus the mirror switch, did it again this morning when I left the VW garage.

That and a few other things means they are changing car .... again.

A long story, but since I picked the first new car up in June 2018 I've had around 35 workshop visits.

First car had a fault with the tyre pressure monitor that kept going off, indicating a loss of pressure on all 4 wheels. They couldn't fix it so changed the car.

Second car had severe mooing noise from rear brakes, passenger door mirror that doesn't return from normal after reversing, plus has a case of kangaroo when cold, which the first car didn't have.

Workshop also damaged doors on both cars with an unprotected part of the ramp.

After long conversations with the dealership and VW, they have agreed to change the car again, due in June.

To top it all, someone ran into the back of me last week.....
