Honda at this point is not willing to replace defective sun visors. Honda was sued....Google this.... Cooper, et al. v. American Honda Motor Co., Inc....and extended the 2006-2009 sun visors to 100000 and more years of coverage. THIS IS A "KNOWN PROBLEM" and Honda was to supposed to have corrected the faulty sun visors,,,...http://www.autopartscheaper.com/2009-2011-Honda-Civic-Sun-Visor-New-Updated-Model-p/83280-sna-a01ze.htm.......this company thinks different.

I have talked to the dealer service rep, Honda customer Care in Torrance, California, and they are saying the Honda Rep that takes care of the Honda dealers in his/her area is talking to the dealer and that I am waiting for a call from the dealer. I am exhausted from all the hassle....this is causing unnecessary pain and suffering. If you google about these sun visors people are selling on EBay, Amazon, and many other sites. They sell so many they have instructional videos online to help people. Have I made it evident that this is volitional. It is also a safety hazard because when you first find out it all of a sudden falls down again while you are driving then you put it up and it happens again ...http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/owners/SearchSafetyIssues...NHTS..National Highway Traffic Association....has many complaints ALSO..

This is the 3rd time I have been in to replace the cracked visors in 2 1/2 years of owning the vehicle. Each time I have had to throw a fit to get the manager to approve not charging me because I am aware of the ongoing problem with their Civic visors. They only approved the recall on certain vins through 2009 and I have a 2010. The problem still occurs and they have not bothered to fix the issue or extend the warranty/recall to other cars. Even the warranty they did extend (7 yrs and/or 100,000) miles is a joke because the mileage on the car has NOTHING to do with these lousy made visors. They crack or pop open about every 7-9 months in Arizona. What a JOKE!!!

Visor cracked and will not stay up. Had a 2007 Honda and had the same issue and they recalled it. Not happy when I have to bend my head down to see out the window because the visor is hanging there and it will not stay up.

Oct 2014, had driver side sun visor replaced due to sun visor expanding and not staying up. Asked if there was a recall at Honda dealer and was told no. I paid over $85.00 to have a new one installed. One week ago the passenger side visor did the same thing, then two days ago the driver side sun visor also expanded and won't stay up. My daughter has a 2006 or 2007 Honda Civic and there was a recall on her sun visors and she had same issue and had it replaced. Then last summer, her other sun visor did same thing. The pattern I'm seeing is when it gets hot outside! By touching the area where the visor is expanded there is a sticky glue residue. Will I have to go to the Honda dealership and raise a stink! This issue has been ongoing with many people who have Honda Civics and I will get two new sun visors or I might be forced to picket the Honda dealership! Can you tell I've had enough of this issue?

There is a recall for this specific problem on civics (different years). I am at a loss as to why the exact same problem in a different year is not considered to be a part of the manufacturing defect.

This is a similar problem/complaint I have like customer #14. The sun visor keeps coming down while I'm driving and it's very dangerous. I have to drive two elderly people everyday and its very hazardous for the driver and the passengers in the car. I got the sun visor fixed 2 years ago from a private auto shop but it's broken again...

Driver's side sun visor cracks open and drops down while driving the car. Not very safe. The visor can not be put back up, just hangs down making it impossible to drive unless you push it to the side. Dealer told us this was a common problem in the "past". told us to call Honda ourselves and see if they will replace it for free. Honda agreed to replace it for a $20.00 charge. Should have been "free"! A few months later my passenger sun visor does the same. It now hangs down and limits my view. Very dangerous! Honda needs to own up to all its faulty car parts, visors, breaks, etc.. and fix them at no charge to the consumer. This is getting ridiculous!

My visor completely cracked through on the inside. It stopped being able to pivot to close. I had to take it off, cut out some of the cracked plastic, and zip-tie it back together to make it usable.

I have friends that have 2010 Civics and they have the same issues. I have read online on other issues. After much reading I see that Honda settled a class action but it ended with 2009 Civics yet they continue using the same crappy visor. I think this is tacky. The cost to fix is $100. Yes, it's fixable - but to me they should be held responsible for it because they know what they are doing and I find it unethical.

Civic LX 1.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 52,000 miles

About the first full week of September, I took the sunshade down from my windshield and the sun visor on the driver's side popped and fell down (not off) in front of my face. I check Ask and Google for costs on repair, as my mechanic said I would probably want to take it to a dealer. I discovered that this has been a REALLY frequent problem and, as noted in many comments, was finally class lawsuit was settled to extend warranty on 2006-2009 Hondas. Apparently, Honda has continued using the same visors. I can order replacement parts from group1autoparts.com for probably about $50 and do it myself, but I'm an old poop and don't want to sit in the Texas sun inside a car with my arms over my head. Honda needs to fix that sucker or stop selling in Texas or anywhere else in the Sunbelt until they correct the problem with a newly designed visor.

The visor is no longer adjustable and won't go back up, not too big a problem for a short person in the day time, but a real annoyance at night and on cloudy days. I think it would be pretty dangerous in any sort of collision, too. Honda's cost too much for such a cheap interior (including having to jack the seat up and down to change height).

The visor on the driver side is split open and of course I ran out of warranty in Dec 2013. The dealer says it will be $100 to fix it:( Shouldn't there be a recall on this if there was a recall on 2009? Its so hard to drive in the sun and I live in Florida.

Last summer, I had the passenger sun visor crack and fall off in less than a weeks time. Then a few weeks later, the driver side visor cracked. I tried superglue, duct tape and it would not stay. Finally got a large binder clip and it has held up on the driver side since it was not totally broken. Now I am trying to get it repaired. Last summer, I was told it was under recall by a dealer until 100,000 miles. Last month, the dealership said they had to order the visors. Now I call because they never got the visors in and they said it is not under recall and that I must pay for the visors at $70.95 each and they would charge no service fee. Why should we have to pay for they CHEAPLY MADE DEFECTIVE SUN VISORS? If the problem is not fixed, then we should be included in the recall. Honda take responsibility.

Honda settled the lawsuit and extended the warrant to 7 years for 2006-2009 Honda Civic, but my 2010 Civic used the same sun visor and just broke it with no reason. Consider it's a 3.5 years car and just out of warranty, pretty upset that Honda continues to use such defected material.

Called the Honda dealer and American Honda custom service as well, they rejected to repair the defected sun visor for free.

Civic LX 1.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 22,000 miles

The driver's side visor finally split. Been reading about this since I bought the car. Class action suit resulted in warranty extension for cars through model year 2009. I have a 2010, just shy of 4 years old, so not covered. They know they have a bad part, kept putting in through at least the 2011 model year, but won't make good. As of this writing I'm expecting a call back from American Honda (hoping for good will for a 30-year Honda owner). I've already bought a replacement (+/- $81) and can pop it in myself in about a minute. Maybe they'll take care of it, but thought I'd post here to run up the count. I have a feeling I'll have to save the receipt and seek reimbursement after the NEXT class action suit.

Too bad car companies won't deal with safety issues until they get caught and the courts or government forces them to act. Can anyone say GM?

Update from Sep 4, 2014: After talking to American Honda, they agreed to give me a gift card for use at a Honda dealer. It covers the cost of the visor, but I'll have to wait to use it until I need something at the dealer. Probably another visor.
