Default DO NOT break your mirror(s)

Just a tidbit of information for those who might be interested. I had a '09 Big Horn that I broke a mirror on that wasn't warranty and it cost me $280(incl. tax) for a new one which I installed myself. Fast forward to current day...I now have a '13 Sport C/C and of course it has the body color, heated, auto-dimming, power folding mirrors. Anyhoo...my drivers side mirror needed warranty replacement and I happened to see the service dept invoice for the new one and it said $576 just for one mirror!!! When I expressed my shock to the service writer he said, "that's what WE pay for warranty replacement, If YOU had to pay for it out of YOUR pocket, non-warranty, it would cost you about $780"
So my recommendation would be....DON'T BREAK YOUR MIRRORS

If I do, I'll be on here looking to sell one of my kidneys!

on my street, you have to fold in your mirrors when you park
if the construction trucks with boards & ladders hanging out the passenger side
its the street punks taking out your mirrors with pellet guns & baseball bats

Where I live they don't break the mirrors, they just take the whole damn truck.

They didn't get the nickname "stealership" for no reason.

WOW.....That's a lot of jack......Thanks for posting......Wonder if the dealer would give it to you for what they pay.....Good idea....Where I'm living they have been stealing the rims and tires along with tailgates from the lots of dealerships.....

Yep, I learned that lesson too... Broke my passenger side mirror backing out of the garage. I was trying not to hit my wife's jeep (she parked too close) and I wasn't watching the passenger mirror. It somehow wedged itself between the doorway and the garage door track. $550 mistake. I guess I'm not very respectable!
