problem #2

In 2006, I noticed that my driver's side mirror was leaking the green "goo" that dims headlights reflecting in it at night. Once all of it was leaked out an oval, that had the appearance of an oil slick, came in the middle of the mirror. Now, the silver top layer of the mirror appears to be sliding off. It had a "funhouse mirror" appearance to it once the "goo" started leaking out of it, but now it is much, much worse. Everything is very blurry, you can't see how to back the vehicle at night, and it is extremely difficult during the day. I have inquired twice about the potential of a recall on this issue, and of course, Chevrolet has downplayed this. The mirror itself costs over $400 - not the entire casing. The entire casing is over $500. There was no incident, accident, or injury to the vehicle that caused this problem. It just happened. I also see many Tahoe with these same mirrors with the same problem riding around the town where I live and work.

Mirror vibrates eccessively, preventing ability to view other vehicles safely. Difficult to judge distance during night time hours. Dealer replaced twice still having problems, refused to replace again!.
