Do all replacement side view mirrors shake?
May 28, 2014 1:08 PM Subscribe
My 2001 Honda Accord was sideswiped and I had to replace the driver's side mirror. The first replacement shook and was an aftermarket part, so I paid an extra $150 out of pocket (the other driver's insurance covered the first one) to have a Honda mirror attached today. I just took it for a test drive, and I think it shakes less... but it still shakes. Like it barely noticeably shifts at 30mph and distinctly vibrates at 60+mph. What do I do now?

I took a cash out settlement from insurance because I'm not popping out all the dents and having a third of my car repainted (it'd look worse in the end) so I think all repairs now are on me. Is it just this body shop that's not doing it right? Or is this just what happens when your mirror gets hit and replaced? The other mirror (original with the car) doesn't shake at all and the old one pre-accident didn't either.
I get the sense that the body shop is mildly irritated that I wanted to replace it; they only charged me the difference in cost extra though. I'm not sure what response I should expect from them if I call back so I wanted to get an overall sense of how reasonable my standards are first. I do feel a bit like a chump having paid $150 for a possibly slightly less shaky but not fixed mirror, however.
