Inside Rear View Mirror is discolored and disfunctional
Rear View Mirror has become discolored with signs of scratches. No remedy as of yet. Wasn't sure if that it a warranty item.

I have the same problem. Cant see a thing out of that mirror is all scratched up and cloudy looking, im guessing just from age or sun exposure. But no physical damage has been done to it what so ever.
It's hard to see through the real view mirror because of the spots in it.

There appears to be rust INSIDE my rear view mirror and it is getting worse. I took it by the local dealer and they scrubbed and scrubbed the mirror trying to get the spots off. After no success, they said it is "rust on the inside of the mirror and we can't get it off"
Bottom third of rear view mirror has streaks that kind of resemble boxes, and the top two-thirds of mirror has spots on it. It's very dark overall and very difficult to see out of. It has been this way since not long after I bought the car, which was about 5 years ago. I assumed it was my fault until I Googled it today -- in an attempt to search for a replacement -- and found all of these complaints. So mad at Lexus! This IS has been THE WORST car I've ever bought from Lexus. (I've also owned and the ES and RX.) Why haven't they issued a recall?! Shame on you Lexus!! I'm calling my local dealer and asking for a free repair, but I have a feeling they'll say no. I'm still waiting on the door and dashboard recall. It's summer in Texas, and my car is a sticky mess everyday. I hate my 2007 IS 350!!!
Lexus replaced the inside rear view mirror at 49k miles. At 80k mikes, the rear view mirror has the same wornout problems. You cannot see through it and Lexus does not want to replace it bc it is out of warranty.

The rear view mirror is pitted and discolored almost so you can not see with it. Never used a cleaner on it other then water. Very unhappy with this car for the many reasons and recalls.
Mirror has dark blotches/scratches making it difficult to see. This has been present for quite some time – – I thought it was something I had done when wiping it, but I see that many others have experienced the same problem. Now the dealer says it will cost me $1000 to replace the mayor when it is an obvious defect.
Same issue: The inside rear view mirror started getting dotted with black grains on all the sides of the mirror! Right now, the black dots are all over the sides and mid-areas of the mirror; thereby causing blocked visuals in front of the car!
