The passenger side mirror once extended beyond the fully open position. However, it was not necessary to visit the dealer to have this corrected; I simply pressed the button again to fold the mirror and then once more to open it, and this time it stopped at the proper position. This has happened only once.
Driver mirror out of position continuously. Have to reposition manually
