If the heating element has changed its resistance due to shorting then yes it can get too hot, but usually the glass breaks first instead of the plastic melting.

I purchased a 2016 QX70 and my side mirror casing melted in February and again recently. CrossRoads Infinity of Raleigh told me it was the way the sun reflected on my car. I say the vehicle, although beautiful, is Defective. I was told if it happens again, I'm responsible. I'm so disappointed. Who makes a car that can't stand the N.C. sun in February? This is some hocus pocus!


That should not happen, it would take a lot of concentrated sunlight to melt the casing, if it was that concentrated it would also catch fire, so I think their full of hooey. Contact Infinity/Nissan : 1-800- 662-6200 Press # until transferred.
