Seeking opinion in regards to fixing the mirror myself
Sorry, Andre. I sympathize with you. Unfortunately, Toyota has used early purchasers to “beta test” their new model update for them, after you have spent $35,000 or so. Some of the early complaints are relatively major (e.g., raspy, loud motor; clunky, rough transmission) others less so, like the mirror, etc.
I myself have made a past decision to buy a first year after major model update, early. It didn’t turn out well. Lots of “they all do that” and other owners, mostly fanboys, telling you it’s your fault. My advice is to continue to take the vehicle in for warranty service until they hate you and you get some satisfaction. Wait a bit on self correction. Sorry to say, but you are in “early buyers” hell.
People that think Toyota doesn’t act like the rest are mistaken. Toyota reviews all of the problems and obvious omissions in construction and engineering revealed by owners in the first year, decides what to correct ( or not) and then in year two many, but not all, are corrected.
It’s what they do. The sad, but obvious answer is, don’t buy early in the first year. I know. I did, too.
