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.

2007 Hyundai Accent Owner Comments

problem #10

Corner of visor snapped suddenly while driving, causing visor to hit driver in the face while driving. This happened again on the passenger side. Passenger visor has continued to break to the point the light stays on, illuminating the car.

Drivers side vanity mirror wouldnt stay up (like so many others) less then 2 days after purchasing from used car dealership (2007 Accent, bought in 2016). Since the thing wouldnt stay up while driving and I had someone following me to get someplace they needed to be asap, I just ripped the darn thing off because it was already cracked on the support bar. It came right off with very little effort required. I dont use it so I have no intention of having it fixed using velcro to hold it up after its put back in place. I removed the wiring and bar attachment. Im just grateful there was no traffic at the time, so there was little chance of an accident (other than accidental drift to the side).

While approaching intersection with green light, drivers visor fell down and completely blocked visability. Light changed causing three car accident. I was hospitalized due to injury and am now talking to an attorney about suing Hyundai as this is a known problem and has not been recalled nor have auto owners been advised of issue. From searching web there are thousands of Hyundai vehicles which vary in year of car that have this issue. I am going to put out feelers for class action law suit and wonder why the government has allowed people to be injured, if not killed, due to this malfunctioning auto part.

The driver side sun visor was broken, so it fell down while I was driving. It has potential danger. And it is hard to find a replacement. Tthough the dealer can provide the part, it's ridiculously expensive. I hope Hyundai makes the part more sustable and the genuine part can be available more. Thanks

Drivers side sun visor broke while driving into the sun. Will not stay up on its own. Visibility is a extremely hazardous situation with this visor in your way.

Passenger seat sun visor broke. By 'broke' I mean that the internal spring mechanism to keep it folded up failed so it now flops down into the line of sight and interferes with visibility. It cannot be folded back up out of visibility, it just keeps flopping straight down. Judging from comments on forums, this is an extremely common problem with Hyundai sedans, and is a big safety hazard, especially if it happens to the driver side visor, because of how it can suddenly fail and interfere with visibility.

problem #2

I was driving on the interstate when my visor simply fell and hit me in the face. It will no longer stay up or in the "down" position, it only hangs there blocking a good portion of the windshield. I have to use the rear view mirror to prop the thing up so that I can see to drive. I feel fortunate that when it fell it did not startle me enough to cause an accident. It is a hazard to not be able to use it in the sun, I live in Arizona and it is brutal here. The passenger side visor is also starting to show signs of not staying in place, not as much of a safety issue, but still a problem.

  • 58,000 miles
Driver's side sun visor failure - the friction rod inside the sun visor suddenly lost its ability to hold the sun visor in place, resulting in the sun visor dropping unpredictably into the driver's line of sight. This poses a significant safety hazard while driving. Apparently this is a known design/manufacturing defect with Hyundai vehicles of this era, and the manufacturer has subsequently produced a redesigned sun visor that is reportedly not susceptible to this type of failure. However, the manufacturer has not issued a recall, instead opting to sell the new part to affected consumers for $150-200.
