Just really unhappy that this simple part fell apart. Now I have to either pay retail or find a junk yard where I can find a gently used one.

This is the 3rd sun visor that was faulty on my car . It was replaced 2 times before under warranty and it still continues to be a faulty problem. I feel it is a Honda part defect and feel I should not pay to have it replaced again for the third time.

Went to tilt sun visor one afternoon and SNAP. The plastic on the visor had split rendering the visor limp. The visor could only be stored full and upright or hanging straight down blocking the entire road. Will take to dealer soon after hearing about this: http://www.hondaproblems.com/Civic/visor.shtml

Sun Visor went out a month or two after getting the car. Went to Honda to try to sell my vehicle and instead of charging me $150 for check up they gave me a courtesy check for free and replaced my visor no charge. Have other issues with the vehicle but said nothing was wrong with it. Went to another Honda and quoted me at $2688!

Just when I thought this only happened to me! Yep, my driver's side sun visor has become a safety hazard. Sure, I may have a lot of miles on my car but it's still only over 3 years old and the visor crapped out??!! I tried Gorilla Glue Epoxy and that lasted about 3 minutes. So...I'm gonna try the few suggestions on installing screws to keep it together cause I'm not paying $70+ for a stupid visor! Hope this screw thing works though!!

FIX IT HONDA....maybe I should as nicely. Honda, can you please fix this problem so others aren't jeopardizing their safety? Thank you.

Faulty Visor splits due to poor craftsmanship. It is not only a danger but annoying. I use my visors to hold a sun shade in place and because it's broken I cannot use either.

sun visor falls apart sun visor falls apart

I had a Civic EX for 3 years and as everyone else I started having problems with my visors. I applied the fix below for the last 2 years and it seems to do the job. I have not had to replace my visors. The problem is that the visor is build by two pieces of molded plastic that encase the tension mechanism that holds the visor open or closed. Honda designed it with the assumption that the internal clips that hold the two pieces of plastic together will be strong enough to hold the tension mechanism and the visor from splitting apart. Well it does not work. It will hold for about a year and after the hot summer days start, the plastic gets soft and the visor starts to fall apart. As soon as I noticed the visor starting to split I looked for something to hold the visor together. I decided that a 1 inch thick metal binder clip should be strong enough to hold the visor together. If you do not know what it is, please click on the link: http://www.staples.com/office/supplies/moreviews?catentryId=11562&langId=-1&storeId=10001&catalogId=10051&imageClickSequence=0

To install do the following:

1. Pull down your visor all the way, as close to the windshield as possible.

2. Take the paper clip and by squeezing the ears of the clip insert it at the edge of the visor, close to the rod that connects the visor to the roof of the car.

3. Once installed you must remove the ears of the binder clip or the visor will not turn. 4. To remove the ears just squeeze the base of the ears where they connect to the binder clip and they will come off. For the ear that is closest to the roof you might have to use a needle nose pair of pliers to remove.

Good Luck

the sun visor problem has nothing to do with the car mechanics its just a big pain in the ass to look at a car with very few miles that already has pieces breaking on the interior

Civic EX

  • Automatic transmission
  • 32,500 miles

I believe that this should be a recall as even my honda service man told me that he's seen this problem a lot in Civics and in Accords. Unfortunately my warrenty expired after 3 years and I was just after that mark so I had to pay fully for it (about 100 bucks). I hope that this becomes a recall, and I've saved my receipt to get reimbursed if so!

It wasn't terribly annoyinng to me as I'm shorter but it was definitely a hazard for my husband to drive, it blocked his line of view.

Civic EX 1.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 21,000 miles

Had to have the visor (driver's side) replaced on 3 different occassions. Hot weather seemed to make it crack worse. However my car stays in a garage except while working 6 hours a day. Dealer had to replace each time since car was under warranty.

Civic EX

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles

New York had a heat wave, over 90 to 100 degree for several weeks so it seems we now have the visor probelms reported in hotter states like Nevada and Florida. My driver side sun visor first cracked at the top and then started to fall down. I went to put it back up because I couldn't see when I drove and it fell off in my hand!

problem #26

Jul 022010

Civic ES

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,000 miles

The visor on the driver side snapped open and cracked up on top less than 1 year after buying my car. This happened twice in less than two years. Since the car was under warranty; the dealer replaced it both times free. The 3rd time, I decided not to pay over $100 to fix something that is going to be broken again.

I acknowledge that this is a safety issue because when it cracks open and hangs down, it blocks my view of the road and I need both hands to place it back. I'm very displeased that Honda treats this problem as if it was nothing they could do about it.

Pulled down the sun visor and both of them snapped, what a cheap piece of equipment. Really sad cause I have always been a fan of Honda, but you can tell they made this piece or had it manufactured from Toys r Us!!!!!
