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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Drivers side sun visor hanging down it won't stay

- Canton, GA, USA

problem #7

  • 46,000 miles
Driver and passenger side visors are mechanically defective. Flipping them from up to down uses an internal component which snaps, keeping the visor in place to stay out up out of visibility or down to block the sun. After 15K miles or so, snap component pushes out through the visor assembly, preventing ability to use during driving -- and ultimately off the bracket holding the visor to the ceiling. Car has 46K miles on it -- both visors have now been replaced 3 times

Driver's side sun visor split horizontally, making it unable to stay in up position. It will fall down on its own-partially obstructing view.

I love my Honda Civic and this is the 2nd one I've had, however I have one safety issue with the 2011, visibility and blind spots while driving. Sitting in the drivers seat, the part between the front windshield and the passenger side window has nearly caused me several accidents. I pull up to stop sign, and road looks clear, but when I start to pull out, I just miss a car or truck that was caught in that one blind spot. Honda should look into this and fix the design of this area.

The sunvisor in the driver's side is broken. At first, one side split open and wasn't keeping the visor in place letting it fall in front of the driver's face. After few days, it completely felt off. I bought this car brand new and only have about 24,000 miles, I don't drive it very much and I think it is bad quality in their sunvisor. I called the Honda dealer and they want to charge me $110, they said that there is not in recall because is the 2011 model.

My sun visors have split open at the seam and do not stay up. They obstruct my vision, especially driving at night. Both driver side and passenger side visors broke within one day of each other at 37,700 miles. Honda refuses to extend warranty and says that I must have damaged them by not using them correctly! car is only one year old and was purchased brand new.
