I recently purchased a 2008 Nissan Sentra with a factory installed optional auto dimming rear view mirror. While exiting 95 South onto 528 East I was blinded by the early morning sun and automatically reached for my sunvisor. When I tried to pull it down it hit the rear view mirror and stopped in a position that blocked my entire forward view except for a few feet. I immediately pulled off the road to ascertain what had just happened. It was now that I discovered a dangerous flaw in the design of this mirror. It was so wide it blocked both visors from going through full travel to the down position. I went to the Nissan dealership where I had purchased the vehicle and noted that these auto dimming mirrors were 10.5 inches wide as opposed to the standard day/nights 9.5 inches on other 2008 Sentra. I advised the service manager of this and he and others verified that all the Sentra with this option had the same too large mirror. An attempt was made to see if this was just a batch a wrong mirrors but after ordering a replacement it turns out these are in all Sentra and there are no auto dimming 9.5 inch mirrors according to Nissan. I have made every attempt to allow the dealership to resolve this but they just refer it to Nissan. Seems like no one at Nissan watched the gene hackman movie "class action". I reference this movie because my other vehicle is a Nissan titan and it has the same exact mirror only with different part number. Seems the term "bean counters" comes to mind. I sincerely believe this to be a dangerous safety issue which could result in injury/death to an unsuspecting driver of one of these vehicles. This may or may not be an issue with the similar 2007 and 2009 models.
