Overland Side Mirror Cost!

Hi All,

I've had my GC 2014 Overland (au spec) for a couple of months now and really love it.

Yesterday I was reverse parking and clipped a telephone pole with my lhs rear view mirror, I was staggered to find the replacement cost for a single mirror assembly is $3400 - plus installation! I've called two dealers and both the same price.

I just can't see how this can be justified at any level and I'm not really interested in putting in an insurance claim and perpetuating Jeep's ability to ream the consumer in this way!

Anyone got any better sources for these than the dealer? All that's actually broken is the black plastic bit, the color coded part is fine and the glass is fine.

Thanks,

Nathan

I was told the mirror itself was only 900 from my dealer. I had some damage done and was later found I had a small scratch on my mirror which I just accepted. Certainly not 3400

I just got a quote of $450 from an independent repair shop. I think this is parts only.
