Have you tested the mirror to make sure it works at all? If you use a bright LED flash light, you can make it dim during broad daylight. Cover the front sensor and shine the flashlight directly into the sensor on the glass side.
Maybe I'll have to give that a try. The mirror has been exactly the same since the day the car was new. It either never worked, or that's just how it is.

My wife is not bothered by it. She claims it works.

I mean, I have seen it kind of go slightly dimmer under certain circumstances, but much later than I would have liked, and not dim enough. Maybe that's just how it is?

I think it sucks, but I drive it like 1% of the time, and it doesn't bother her, so whatever. I have just made a mental note to never buy one if I buy a new car one day. Or at least I need to see it work before I buy.
