Any have an issue with their side mirror? I just noticed that on my drivers' side it has a slight warp... just enough to cause a distraction when trying to switch lanes. I may bring it back to the dealer.

Looks like I will plan on it.... funny though I never noticed before. If it wasn't there then what would have caused that to happen?

I've noticed this lately.....I thought it was just time to see the eye doctor again. I've only noticed it in the last week to ten days...at the same time that we've had unusually cold temps here in New England. Could there be a connection? I have not noticed this on the passenger side.

That is strange... I noticed it too with these frigid temps here in the NE... funny that the pax side wasn't affected. I guess if I was outside for extended period of time at -6°F I would warp too. :(

Kidding only. But it does seem like a pattern............:(

It's not really cold here (45F), but I've noticed a *very* slight warp since I've had the MO on 12/27/2003. I think it's slighly convex warp to it to help in seeing around you on the side.

I also have a slight warp, mostly on the inside of the mirror. I swear I did not have it for the first 6 months I owned the Murano. I would like to know if anyone got their dealer to replace.

Substandard mirrors. Mine was also warped and snapped into 2 pieces within a block of backing out of my garage. Nissan said they would replace it but it has been backordered for a month now.

Mine is also warped. It was warped from the day I drove off the lot. I rarely notice it now, but I'll get around to complaining about it after the more serious problems are fixed. If you complain about too many things, even if they are legitimate problems, the service guys get an attitude.

See if Nissan is willing to buy you the mirror with turn signal instead, or give you credit towards one at least....

I assume they warp because some engineer set the fit tolerance tight and the backing on the mirror has a different coefficient of expansion that glass. (most things do) and as the temps drop it effectively acts like a bi-metallic strip by contracting more than the glass and bends the glass as it shrinks. The fracture in the mirror shown by Trev is of the correct form for such a stress.

Temp change was definitely the catalyst.

Thats why they should give you the money to replace it as the current replacementwill do the same thing then you can buy those turn signal mirrors. :D

Maybe, but they still shouldn't do that...

It's hit - 30 here in three winters, and mine are still fine.

Last I remember, heated mirrors are standard in Canada.
