Side Mirror Shaking

We are picking up our hybrid on Monday. One issue I heard about involves the side mirrors shaking. How many of you have had this problem? Are there any other problems for us to look out for?

My hybrid hasn't been built yet but I've test driven two 2019 hybrid RAV4's. One of the two had a drivers side mirror that shook at highway speeds. I did not take the other on a route that was conducive to driving at highway speeds.

Yep. My 2019 Rav4 hybrid does have the driver's side mirror shake. I have 200 miles on it now. That is on my list of Monday's items of concern. My seat settings program buttons don't work, that problem was right at the dealer's lot.
I hope it's not a "they all do that" situation.
The passanger, not so much. The rear view is solid. Plus I can flip that and see behind me on my model !

Mirrors shaking

Both mirrors shake on Hybrid XSE - drivers side way worse.
This is unacceptable and Toyota needs to recall!
I'll be calling Toyota today and I advise all owners to do the same.

So these are all Japanese models -- could it be that these issues will be rectified by the time the Ontario plants start churning out the rest of the production models?

I drove an XSE today (made in Canada) and I thought the mirrors were fine.

Does it come from Japan or Canada?
