Trailblazer 6-cyl

The car drives fine but a few weeks after purchase, the passenger mirror started moving. I have a car where when you open the car with your designated key, the mirrors set to your preferences. I kept resetting the mirror and a few days later they would not hold the set again. Now every time I shut off the car and get back in the mirrors have to be reset. There have been times when I forget to reset the mirror and start driving. I am so afraid I am going to hit someone while attempting to change lanes. I have to try to reset the mirror while driving and this takes my attention away from the road. I have had the car in the shop three times in Kentucky. At first they kept telling me they couldn't find the problem because it didn't act up for them because it would hold for the time they had the car. Finally they did another test and it showed I had a faulty part in the door that is attached to the mirror. They replaced that and it held for about a week and a half and then started again. I was in the process of moving to South Carolina so I took it to a dealership there. They couldn't find anything wrong and charged me for the visit even though this has been an ongoing problem. I called GM and talked by E-mail to their customer service and have received no help at all. They said they would call back (they called once) but I haven't heard from them.
