The contact owns a 2004 Acura TL. While stationary, the rearview mirror developed a bubble that obstructed and distorted the view of the road behind. Acura North scottsdale in scottsdale, Arizona was made aware of the failure and stated that there was no recall; therefore, the contact would have to pay for the repair. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and stated that the four year warranty was out of date and that the repair would not be covered. The failure mileage was 58,500.

Fluid in rear view mirror that acts as anti-glare, liquefied and leaked out of mirror casing. Anti-glare capability no longer exists, making night vision via rear view mirror to be obscured by brightness of headlights of other vehicles, liquid also very viscous and difficult to remove.

Rear view mirror began to discolor, changes colors, and continues to make various formations within the glass. Additionally, the mirror has clouded. In researching the issue, internet articles and the dealers indicate that the mirror contains gas and fluids that diminish glare at night, but fails due to heat within the vehicle. If I do not remove and replace the mirror, the mirror supposedly will start to leak corrosive fluids onto the interior portions of the vehicle and the mirror itself has the potential to explode. So, we have a known issue; a non-functioning rear view mirror; and a part that has the potential to injure vehicle occupants...
