The mirrors in the above videos didn't break. they flew forward. Going from 40mph to 0 in an instant will do that. It's not unheard of for dummies to record 4Gs of deceleration. Imagine what the car experiences. You didn't know your mirrors went forward? try pushing on them in the forward direction.

Further, stuff breaking off in a crash isn't indicative of quality. lots of parts break in crash (specifically crash tests) there's going to be lots of parts broken off inside and outside the car, even without direct impact. Means absolutely nothing.
