Default side view mirrors

I have a 2005 cruiser with power sideview mirrors. The problem is the image in the mirror appears much further away than the actual distance. I know the image is suppose to appear further back, but this is ridiculous. Anyone have a solution.

Thanks

Ask the dealer. Mine are fine. However, mine are 2001 power mirrors. They aren't any aftermarket mirrors are they? (I realize you said 2005 cruiser, but didn't mention factory mirrors).

Just keep remembering Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear. I can't see why your's could be any different than everyone else's, so we all see the same "far away" view that you do.

Assuming you are talking about the passenger side mirror.

[img][/img]I would say that is a bonus as it helps to eleminate the blind spots. I have even gone so far on both my PTs and my Dodge Durango to install a "objects appear smaller" on my drivers side mirrors also. It almost eleminates the blind spots.
