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.

problem #11

Sonata 6-cyl

  • 66,000 miles


The driver's side sun visor tensioner broke (defective), allowing the visor to move down to a point where it was directly in your eyes, affecting road visibility. After researching the internet, it was determined to be a quick do-it-yourself fix after purchasing the visor on-line for less than $50. However, after reviewing the multiple complaints on this same problem, a decision was made to add weight to this common problem that Hyundai has failed to address.

Sonata 4-cyl

The driver's side sun visor mechanism broke and the visor now hangs down impairing the driver's visibility. This is a common complaint for this model year Sonata according to my internet research. Hyundai has issued technical serv. Bulletin #09-01-00, Feb. 2009 re: This problem to its dealers so it obviously is a common problem. Also see NHTSA item #10028945.

Upon purchase of my used 2007 Sonata almost immediately both sun visors broke. We were informed it wasn't under warranty. I have lived with it but it is a safety hazard and upon searching for a recall I found this has affected thousands of unhappy Sonata owners. I found a service bulletin that applies to only certain states. What's the deal with that... should be all states.

Sonata 4-cyl

  • 125,000 miles
The driver and passenger sun visors do not stay in the upright position. They fall down while driving, causing visibility problems and potential head injury. Contacted dealer, and then escalated thru Hyundai regional service organization to get this addressed according to Hyundai technical service bulletin 08-01-029, Hyundai recall campaign T64. Hyundai refused to service vehicle under the recall, despite the VIN being included in the recall classification.

2007 Sonata both sun visors have failed still under 70,000 miles. The passenger side changed under warranty, it began sagging again a few months after replacement. Yesterday the drivers side made a cracking sound, it is now completely hanging down, interfering with my view.

Sonata 6-cyl

  • 80,000 miles
Both visors have broken, along with the drink holder in the middle console. There is a recall for a 2007 Hyundai Sonata in some states; however, my vehicle apparently isn't included in that. I have been reading forums on this problem and it is apparent it, in fact, is a problem and needs a resolution to both defects. I contacted Hyundai about it and they say that my VIN is "not covered". I think it is ludacrous that Hyundai doesn't take action to fix this and they will continue to lose customers.

problem #3

Sonata 6-cyl

  • 62,000 miles
Passenger side sun visor has "sprung" and will no longer stay in the up or down position. This impedes driver visibility and also creates a hazard for a passenger getting into the car. A passenger recently struck her head on the visor while getting into the car.

problem #2

Jun 102012


  • 48,000 miles
Sun visors suddenly broke and fell into driver's field of vision. Even when snapped into upright position, they drop and block visibility. This issue has not been experienced in any other vehicle. This is a safety concern and should be a recall item as research indicates that this has been a known issue for some time.

Sun visors will not stay up, especially in warmer conditions. This is a safety issue as when they drop to down position while driving visibility is impaired. Almost ran a red light recently because they fell down and I could not see the light any longer.
