My 2006 GS300 also having this issue and I called NHTSA to file a complain. My rear view mirror is complete deteriorated to a point that it can no longer see any object in the mirror. It has become a safety issue and I think if we all report this issue to NHTSA then we may have a chance to ask Lexus to do a safety recall. The replacement mirror will cost more than $1800 from Lexus and they are only willing to pay 50% not including labor in my case. 50% of $1800 is still too much for a mirror. It is a safety device not like radio or power window. We bought a Lexus not Pinto. What a disappointment!
