Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Both sun visors on 2006 Honda Civic have broken. The driver's side broke at ~59,000, fixed and broke again at 82,000. The driver's side visor is currently hanging in the line of sight and ready to fall off. It split apart at the top seam. Both visors do not sit in the closed position properly which causes them to constantly be in the driver's line of sight when driving. Visors remain in the open position - unable to close when not needed which impairs driving vision. Recall"??"

1) since I've owned my car, I have had to replace a faulty visor..and each time it gets hot outside, my visor acts up and ends up breaking and hanging in front of my face while I drive. 2) every summer it won't work properly and eventually it breaks requiring it to be replaced. 3) you have no choice but to replace it each time this happens. And it's unpredictable as to when it's going to break. There is no fix to prevent it from happening. They need to come up with a redesign that is not faulty. Honda does have the part, but now that my warranty is up, I have to pay for it each time it breaks. That just doesn't seem fair.

The contact owns a 2006 Honda Civic. The contact stated that the driver's and passenger's side sun visors would continually fall from the closed position. In addition, the visors were also split in half exposing the metal clamps on both ends of the visors making it impossible for the visors to remain in a stationary position. The driver's side visor was previously replaced by the dealer however, the failure persisted. The manufacturer was contacted and the contact was awaiting a decision on if he would be liable for the repairs. The failure mileage was approximately 65,000 and the current mileage was approximately 75,000. The VIN was unavailable.

Thousands of late model Honda Civic owners, including my wife's Honda have been having chronic sun visor breakage problems. When it breaks unexpectedly, it blocks the driver's view creating a very unsafe condition. Honda refuses to acknowledge this issue and instead still sells the faulty part as replacement. Some drivers have replaced 2 visors every year. Check this link of complaints: www.carcomplaints.com/Honda/Civic/2006/accessories-interior/sun_visor_falls_apart.shtml Honda won't recall these faulty parts saying it's not a safety issue. But Toyota didn't think floormats were a safety issue either and look what resulted! call Honda at: 800 999 1009 and see for yourself. This is a serious safety issue! want to help?

I have a 2006 Honda Civic and have had a problem with the sun visors splitting and falling into a down position without being able to put into an up position again. This results in an impeded view of my driving field. When I try to move it to the side window and make a turn the visor hits me in the head causing another issue while driving. Within the first year I had to have the driver's side replaced (not sure about the passenger side), but it was under warranty. A year and a half ago I needed to have the driver's side replaced but it wasn't under warranty and I did not have the $65 to pay for it. Now I need the passenger side replaced and the driver's side is so loose I have to push it up for every stop light so I can see it. It's extremely dangerous how it flops down and blocks your field of view. I made a complaint with Honda but they said they can't do anything until there is a recall on the part.

While driving on the interstate the driver side sun visor broke off and hit my arm. It scared me and I swerved off of the road nearly causing an accident. After researching the internet trying to find a replacement, I discovered that there have been hundreds of people affected by this manufacturing problem in the 2006 Honda Civics. Honda is aware of the situation and is refusing to take responsibility for the repair unless still covered under the warranty. They have advised me that they will split the cost of part and labor but will not consider anything this else. This could have caused my or my children or others on the road at the time our life. I hope that others have not had to experience something more than I have. This should be a recall and they should take full responsibility for the error in manufacturing. I was unable to repair immediately due to a crisis in my family. Please check the internet for the many complaints and problems that people have been having. People have repaired their sun visors multiple times and continue to have them break. This could become vary hazardous and should be corrected.
