DW just called me & said she hit a truck while turning at an intersection,tearing her right passenger mirror off,now dangling by the wiring.The other driver of the big truck didn't see any damage to his vehicle & told her 'not to worry about it',then he drove off.No one was hurt.
My wife had been in an accident a year ago.Our insurance rates didn't go up then,but would if another is reported.

Should we report it to our insurance agent?

I wouldn't report it. The passenger power mirror on my 2003 Toyota Camry was broke off similar to your mirror. I found a third-party mirror online that was painted the same as the car. The mirror was cheap (less than $200 IIRC) and easy to replace. I would either look for a third party mirror or an OEM mirror from a junk yard.

Are you just tired of the Avalon? A six-year old Avalon with 113K miles is just getting broken in. If you make the other repairs, you should be able to drive another 90K miles. If I was in a need for a car right now, I'd look at it myself. Have you considered selling it yourself?
