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.

The driver's side sun visor is broken and does not remain in up position nor remain on the side. This is a driving hazard as it blocks and obstructs the driver's view, and will hit the driver with vehicle movement.

Honda Civic sun visors, split, break and lose their ability to stay fixed while driving. I'm in need in replacing my 3rd sun visor. The visors on the Honda Civic drops and obstructs a clear view when driving and is a major safety concern. Honda dealers tell consumers that it's due to heat in the area where I live, but there are many websites listing complaints from with other Honda owners who live in an areas with cooler temperatures. Regardless of where one resides, I am uncomfortable driving my car with fear that the visor will drop without warning, startle me and obstruct my view. How does one get through to the Honda manufacturer that this is a major problem that must be resolved, not just replaced at the owner's expense.

8th generation Honda Civic models have a common problem of sun visor hinge failures that cause the visor to always stay in the down position. This is not so much of a problem during the day, but it severely limits the sight of the driver at night. This is a problem with all 8th gen Civics, but Honda refuses to cover the repair, or to recall the visor.

The sun visor is broken in my 2007 Honda Civic ex. When it first happened, I was able to muscle it up into the proper closed position, but since I park in the sun, and need to use a sun shade, I need to put down the sun shade, then muscle it back into the closed position again. This morning as I put down the shade, I heard a loud cracking sound, and saw that the shade is falling apart now, with broken pieces of plastic now falling out of the shade. This is a design flaw that several others have reported. I have a 100 mile commute to work, so the car was long out of warranty when this first happened, based on mileage, and I can't afford to have this repaired at my cost, so I will have to attempt to repair it myself, as there has been no recall initiated by Honda for this extremely common issue.

My 2006 Civic hybrid sedan has had 4 sets of sun visors put in it while under warranty. The sun visors break internally and will not go all the way up or down. When this happens the visors hang down about three inches from the front roof line right in the drivers field of view. When trying to place the visor all the way forward it does the same thing and hangs about three inches down in the drivers field of view. My sun visor failures all happened during the summer and the manufacturer has not offered a fix for this part.

I have a 2007 Honda Civic LX sedan. The sun visor on both the driver and passenger side has split into two and broken off it's support. I am very concerned about the safety of this vehicle while driving it in this condition. It should be recalled at the manufactures expense!

2007 Honda Civic visor is defective, splits, falls down and obstructs driver's view and can cause accident. Safety issue. Honda replaced once. Now failed again. Claims not under warranty-not a safety issue. What do I do with my 16 yr. Old daughter when this happens while she is driving? please make this a recall. Otherwise, I'll be replacing twice a year forever. Thank you so much.

I pulled down the sun visor on the passenger side and a few seconds later my husband pulled down his drivers side)visor in our 2007 Honda Civic LX and they both cracked and wouldn't go back up. This obstructed our view and made it difficult for him to see the road while driving and posing a safety hazard.

Broken driver's side sun visor on a 2007 Honda Civic. Many people are experiencing this problem. The broken sun visor will not stay up and causes a safety hazard by limiting the drivers vision of the road. Please get Honda to recall and redesign these visors, they are terrible and break repeatedly.

I have now owned this vehicle for two years and in that time I have had to have the passenger side sun visor replaced twice to date and today, am taking my car in once again for the driver side sun visor to be repaired for the third time. Needlessly to say at this point I am getting quite aggravated with this particular problem. Every time one of the visor's break it causes a vision issue for me while I am driving; I commute to work 45 minutes one way I am told the glue holding the visor in our 100+ degree temperature does not hold. Each time it is repaired but does not last.

Both driver and passenger sun visors in Honda Civic 2007 model cracking and falling apart. Hangs and does not go up in the stow position easily without wanting to pop off. Blocks driver's view and can no longer do a good job of blocking the sun out of the field of view. This situation can easily lead to a dangerous driving condition. I've reported the problem to Honda usa and they are not making a recall or a redesign on this part. So the broken/cracked sun visors are being replaced by new parts that are designed to fail in the future.

The contact owns a 2007 Honda Civic. While driving approximately 45 mph, the driver's side sun visor failed to remain in an elevated secured position. The defective sun visor obstructed the driver's visibility. The failure occurred whenever the vehicle was in motion or stationary. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer for inspection and they replaced the sun visor. The failure mileage was 7,500 and current mileage was 8,000. Updated 08/28/09 updated 08/31/09.

The driver side sunvisor on my 2007 Honda Civic sedan cracked so it no longer stays up, thus creating a safety hazard. This is the first summer where I've parked my car outside during the day so I believe the part failing is heat related.

I have a 2007 Honda Civic LX. Hot day, opened the car door and sat down and noticed my sun visor flapped down and busted. Looked online to see if this was a common problem and view hundreds of complaints and the pictures of what happened to my case. Buerkle Honda in Minnesota wants to charge me $125 to fix a problem that was not my fault and is obviously a common problem that they are ignoring.

2007 Honda Civic si sun visor separation and hangs in the field of vision. There is a defect in the manufacturing or design of the sun visors of Honda Civics. The unit breaks apart without warning and will no loger be able to retract out of the drivers field of vision. I repaired the driver's side under warranty, and now the passenger side has become a problem, and hangs straight down with no ability to adjust the position. I have reviewed several sites on the internet to conclude that this is not an isolated error, but a continuing defect.

2007 Honda Civic visors (drivers and passenger sides) break when it gets hot and they flop down unexpectedly interfering with the drivers line of sight. This is the car my daughter drives and I am very concerned about the problem because Honda is doing nothing to fix the problem. I live in Arizona and the visor can¿T take the heat. I have had both visors replaced 3 times and they are broken again. Aside from the obvious inconvenience, I truly believe this is a safety issue yet the keep putting in the same defective visors.
