I had this problem.

I just readjusted the rear-view mirror to be below the conversation mirror. Took about 5 min.

But I am pretty short. (5'6")

Mine came off in July on one of my many trips when I was moving from Chicago to NW Ohio. Heard something hit the car, looked in the mirror, didn't see any damage, kept driving. When we stopped for lunch, I saw it when I was getting my 18 month old out of the car. The piece had blown off. Never did g...

etrailer.com has 4 or 5 hitches for the freebee. Hidden Hitch just released a class 2 (which is what I have on my Vibe as well), so now I can share my accessories between the two). Pain in the but to install.

I installed a class 2 hidden hitch over the weekend, and the trailer plug is actually on both sides. The Brake, Ground and Left signals are on the drivers side and the Right signal is on the passenger side. Hitch took 2.5 hours (hardest hitch install ever), and the wiring took about 1 hour due to ha...

Just press and hold the selector button. (At least that is how it works on the SEL).

Just speaking to my friend who works at Delphi the other day about the AUX input. He did some digging for me and found out that you don't need a special adapter box or anything. You just need to plug your audio some pins on one of the connector. When Audio is present, the button should just work. I ...

You must have the rear AC. If you didn't you would have 2 on each side.

My bench style 3rd row latches with just the weight of the seat. No trouble at all. Are your pull-tabs/straps staying out, or are they spring loaded so they go back in when you pull them? Mine are spring loaded.

Re: Autolocks act abnormally

I have a problem with the auto locks in my Freestyle which I don't like. When the car stops and people want to exit, the front doors are no problem, use the door handle and exit, but the rear doors are a problem. They do not unlock with the handle. One has to either use the front unlock button, use...

Phil wrote:The second row buckets recline where as the split bench does not. Or does it? That makes me wonder if I made the right decision? Either way I just wanted to point it out to potential buyers.
I have the split bench and it reclines around 15% (each side seperately).

The rearview mirror connects to the windshield - not the roof. It's on a stalk about 3 inches in length and has a ball joint swivel at each end. I can easily adjust it for a clear rear view on my moonroof equipped SEL. I cannot understand what all the fuss is about. well said... Ditto. I have not h...

I'm telling you your all crazy, but you are allowed to be :). My family has had multiple cars go over 100 miles (Dad's truck is at 220k right now), and we change oil every 5k miles. With regular Quakerstate dino oil. Those of you changing your oil every 3000 miles are throwing money away, especially...
