Purchased as a pre-owned vehicle, private party. The light in the vanity mirror on the passenger side visor doesn't work when the vanity mirror is opened. The mirror's frame has cracked and the light's wiring has shorted or been pinched.
Both the Driver's side and Passenger Side Vanity Mirror just broke off one day when we went to use them! I have not replaced them.
The vanity mirrors on both the drivers and passenger sides have broken hinges. My 2003 had this same problem. You would think that a car that costs over 75-100k that this would have been corrected in newer years.
BROKE WHEN Lifted, HAD REPLACED FOR AROUND $225.00 from DEALER, Four months later noticed it was broke again.
