Mine is Japan (November) made as well, no mirror issues (other than the pesky digital rear view for my old eyes! ).

Not all hybrids are built in Japan. Canada builds them as well and many are already on dealer lots or already at home with their new owners. Mine is a Canada build....hoping to take deliver before the week is out

Ummm, that's pretty common knowledge by now, the question is, are the mirror issues coming from the NA plant(s) or Japan, or all plants?

This is unacceptable and Toyota needs to recall!
I'll be calling Toyota today and I advise all owners to do the same.

Look at your VIN A J as the first letter means Japan.

I just had my memory seats fixed, the dealers were clueless and took 2 days to figure out what they needed to do. They also programmed in the "all windows down".

I asked about the mirror shake.. they said they could not do anything. Also the blinker "tick" which they say they can't change. Yet a U.K. video on the Rav4 hybrid they were showing, with a radio going, i could here the "tick" clearly.

i also asked about the heated seats, they really only get a bit warm, not hot like my wife's Santa Fe Sport. We have the 3 level settings, but even today when she was driving, I could not tell her seats were on high. Yet she said the driver's seat was warmer.

Turn signal blinker volume can be changed to "Large"(Loudest) and number of blinks on lane change anywhere from 3 to 7 blinks with TIS Techstream, I set mine to loudest and 7 blinks.
