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.

Sun visor failed and no longer will remain up. It is extremely loose and points directly downward. This is caused by a design and/or a manufacturing defect. It presents a safety hazard as the visor obstructs the drivers view. In as much as this problem is prevalent with this model vehicle and is costly to correct when the vehicle is out-of-warranty, it should be recalled or at a minimum be provided with a lifetime warranty by the manufacturer. My vehicle is still in warranty.

The driver side sunvisor on my 2007 Hyundai Sonata randomly falls down from down from its retired position. This occurred again this past week and obscured my vision while traveling at a speed of about 50mph on a two lane road near my home. I momentarily was not in full control of the vehicle and almost ran off the road into a ditch due to my vision obstruction. Once I flipped the visor back up I regained control of my vehicle with my heart in my throat. I really believe that the defective visor almost killed me because it randomly flopped down, blocking my view of the road. This visor issue has been going on for a few months now and this time it really almost killed me. I will be getting this fixed next week, but there should be a recall on the part.

The driver side sun visor fell down while driving and will not stay in the previous locked position. Internet searches show many other drivers with this same issue and all being told that a repair out of warranty is over $200 for a visor. This is a major safety issue and I have tried everything from velcro (works until it get hot and then falls off) to bungee cords, rubber bands, and even a magnet. When you do needs the visor to protect from the sun all of these temp fixes prevent the safe switch to flipping down the visor. At first you could position the visor to block the sun now it just hangs straight down.

Both visors on my 2007 Sonata do not stay in place, I have contacted Hyundai and they are unsympathetic to my situation due to the mileage, 72,000, out of warranty. Also, both of my rear door handles have broken. I have to reach around to inside of door to open rear door.

The sun visor on the passenger side of my 2007 Hyundai Sonata just started dropping on its own and won't go back to its normal position. The same thing happened to the driver side sun visor about 6 months ago, which had to be replaced since it was blocking site. We had to take the car to a Hyundai dealer to have it replaced.

Sonata

  • 63,600 miles
While traveling on a highway entrance ramp, the glass of my moon roof "exploded" spontaneously. At the time of the incident (approximately 12:00 pm est), the temperature was around 30 degrees Fahrenheit and there were no adverse weather conditions, I was traveling under no overpasses, and there were no vehicles in front of me. I noticed no objects striking my car before or at the time of the incident, my passengers and I only heard a noise that we agreed sounded like a gun shot coming from above the vehicle. Since I happened to have the sun shade closed over the moon roof, no glass entered the interior of the vehicle, but a significant amount of the moon roof (approximately 2/3) blew towards the back of my car and onto the highway ramp. Since I was traveling with my wife, mother, 5 year old daughter, and 2 year old son, this incident poses a significant safety hazard because if I hadn't had the sun shade closed, all passengers would have been exposed to flying debris from the blown out glass. I am confident that no objects struck my car to breach the moon roof, I strongly feel that this was a failure of the vehicle/component itself.

Using sun visor as designed when the component that holds the visor in a flat position above the steering wheel audibly failed (made a breaking noise). Sun visor now will not stay in a secure flat position (the position you would put the sun visor in when you are not using the sun visor). The sun visor falls down blocking some view ahead (as it is meant to do only when you are blocking the occasional glare from the sun). This is the second sun visor from Hyundai that I have had this happen to.

2007 Sonata less than 60,000 miles both sun visor passenger and driver side will not stay up. The bracket within the visor crack and is un fixable. Both visors will have to be replaced. The sun visor that will not stay up is a safety hazard and vehicles visors should be recalled.

My 2007 Sonata has a serious safety problem. The sun visors will not stay up and fall at random times. I have velcro attached and it still will not stay up. Causes a large problem as you are driving down the street and it falls in your face.

Failure of visor on 2007 Hyundai Sonata. This first failed while under warranty and was repaired by the dealer. Now it has failed again. The visor drops down obscuring the driver's vision. Just before failure there was a squeaking noise while adjusting the visor, then failure. This problem is not unique to my Sonata as I found this link at an online site with many others having the same problem. www.howtomendit.com/answers.php?id=157121.

The driver side sun visor / shade on 2007 Hyundai Sonata has stopped staying in the 'up' position. It flops down obstructing the driver's view of the road and oncoming traffic. I discovered that a lot of people have exactly the same complaint. This is an extremely dangerous problem and needs to be addressed quickly. A replacement after market part is hard to find.

My sun visor suddenly stopped locking into a safe position. It falls down when I try to put it up. I hit my head on it and it impairs my vision. I can't see stop lights. I have to drive with one hand holding the visor out of my eyes and one hand on the wheel. Not exactly the 10 and 2 positions suggested for safe driving.

The driver sun visor in Hyundai Sonata 2007 is loose. It doesn't stay up, it just drifts down. Its a safety hazard since it happened on my passenger's side too. There are numerous complaints regarding this issue. Make this a recall since this part not covered after 60000 miles on the car. Hyundai makes it really costly to replace a single part. They charge $145 to replace a single side. This should be a recall.

Driver's side sun visor will not remain in place and obstructs the driver's view. It started to sag just a little a few months ago, and now will not stay up. I have to push it forward and it will stay pushed against the windshield for now. If it fails any further it will obstruct my view entirely.
