Thanks. There really is something wrong when a new car has this kind of problem. I'll check with my dealer to see if a fix is in the works. In the mean time I solved the problem by attaching two small springs to the tension rod that controls the 'lift' part of the mechanism. It's a real 'Rube Goldberg' kinda fix but it works.
