Someone will find some reason that it MUST fold seven times. Then others will discover that they too must fold the mirrors seven times. One owner who just can't stand it anymore take will take it to the dealer to have it "repaired". After two days in a cheap rental (that they had to pay for because they didn't get the MaxCare warranty) it will be returned with two software updates and "no codes stored", only to be found to STILL HAVE THE %^%&*)!! PROBLEM. All of this will be cronicled in several multi-hundred word diatribes in online forums.
Parts are on order, but they are on national backorder for three months. The owner considers a Lemon Law claim with outraged forum members backing him up. A STAR incident is reported and JEEP sends its best technical staff to the dealer. They can't find the problem after swapping the mirror, TIPM, body harness, DEF injector and sunroof motor, and putting nitrogen in the tires. As a last resort, the dealer buys the vehicle back and the disgruntled former owner buys his and hers Smart Fourtwos, never to be heard from again.
FINALLY the engineer that programmed the logic for the mirror folding hears about the crisis while surfing for "best dog fart vine videos". He tells his boss it is programmed for 5 cycles per key cycle. "WHY ON EARTH FIVE?!", exclaims his boss. "It seemed reasonable. Wasn't in the spec." Engineer gets fired, officially for watching dog fart vine videos on company time, but we know better. Another guy changes the cycle limit to ten. A critical RRT is created. Tens of thousands of vehicles get reprogrammed. All is right with the world. Crickets are heard in the forums, then someone decides to ask:
"Sooo, how many times can you change between seat memory location 1 and 2?"
