How much does a replacement Honda Accord mirror cost?
Answer: Replacement mirrors for Honda Accords have varying prices depending on the materials that were used to make them and whether they are manual or automatic. For instance, replacement side-view mirrors that are made from glass cost around 50 to 120 USD, while those that are made from plastic typically cost about 20 to 200 USD.

Is it okay to drive without side-view mirrors if a rear-view mirror is installed?
Answer: The answer to this depends on the laws of the state where you are driving. Some states have laws that require vehicles to have side-view mirrors. In these states, driving without side mirrors is considered as an equipment violation. Those who will be apprehended will receive a ticket which will require them to install mirrors. On the other hand, in some states such as California, it is only necessary for a car to have a rear-view mirror and a driver's side mirror.
What are the regulations regarding aspheric wing mirrors in the United States?
Answer: The United States does not allow aspheric mirrors to be used on driver-side mirrors because in 2008, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found out that these mirrors do not convey accurate information. In fact, they do not reflect the precise speed and distance of approaching cars. Thus, drivers may get into accidents since they see distances as smaller than they actually are when reflected in aspheric mirrors.
What is the most effective way to erase scratches on a Honda Accord mirror?
Answer: Removing scratches from a Honda Accord mirror is a simple DIY project. Just prepare a cotton swab, soft cloth, and white toothpaste. Toothpaste applied with a cotton swab is effective when dealing with small, scratched areas. Rinsing the mirror and wiping it dry with a soft cloth are also important once the scratches are removed by the toothpaste.
What's the best way to remove a Honda Accord mirror?
