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.

The driver side sun visor does not stay in the up position. It keeps falling into the field of view. There are numerous other complains on the web for the same complaint. Seems to be a poorly built part.

I have 2007 Hyundai Sonata model. My passenger side sun visor (inside) is not holding and sunvisor is keep going down. But I used only few times because I used driver side sun visor lot of times and usually using driver side sun visor. The driver side sun visor is fine. And last year mirror is crack (inside sunvisor at passengerside). So I had complain many times to Hyundai usa hq and local dealer but they said you have to pay for and fix that. But I don't understand I only used few times that visor is problem? that sun visor has keep moving and shaking when I have driving and bother too. It is mean worry about driving. But Hyundai said we can do nothing!!!

1. air bag is on constantly. Have had it fixed by dealer but to no avail; it's not off for very long. Have had this problem for over 12 months. 2. sun visor on both driver and passenger side are broken, won't stay up. I am using make shift alternative to support them. It creates a safety hazard when the visor unexpectedly drop when driving. Have spoken with other Hyundai owners with the same concern.

The sun visors both malfunctioned. They do not stay in place without being tied up. I feel this is a safety issue that they can droop down without warning.

Sonata 4-cyl

  • 65,000 miles
This vehicle has defective sun visors on both the driver and passenger side. The sun visors will not remain in the up position and come down while driving and block my view through the windshield. I have already purchased and replaced the passenger side sun visor in August 2012. My passenger side sun visor needs to be purchased or replaced I have contact Hyundai via email regarding this to be a safety hazard and the visor drops down suddenly while driving and blocks the windshield view. I have reviewed other complaints regarding this same problem with other vehicle owners of this model Sonata on the national highway traffic safety website. When will Hyundai recall the sun visors and determine that this is a safety hazard. I have already replaced the passenger side sun visor that has the same problem as this is a safety hazard.

  • 85,000 miles
While driving, the visor would not go back to the up position. The visor would not remain in a fixed position. This caused reduced visibility. On sharp turns the visor would swing and hit the driver in the head. The dealership said they could fix it at my expense, because of mileage there was no more warranty, and the part was not in stock that day. Online forums and Hyundai's own service bulletin tsb-09-01-003 document show that it is known this part prematurely fails. The dealership refused to acknowledge that Hyundai had issued any documents related to this issue. They also stated that Hyundai has never and will never do a state by state recall, this claim is proved false by NHTSA campaign 13V-354. If Hyundai had issued a recall when they became aware of the issue, or replaced the part proactively when my car was still under warranty I would have had a safer driving experience.

I was driving down the highway and the driver's side sun visor fell in front of my face. I swerved and narrowly missed hitting another car before I got it out of the way. The passenger sun visor is also defective and won't stay up. My car is a Hyundai Sonata. I know that Hyundai had a recall on the sun visors in the sunbelt states, but my car was not listed in that recall, even though I have the same problem. Hyundai refuses to fix the visors. After searching the internet, I have learned that many other models of Hyundai have this same problem; so obviously Hyundai's voluntary recall was to small in scope (probably on purpose).

This appears to be a common complaint, as yet unresolved by Hyundai, at least not in Michigan. The driver's side sun visor no longer has tension and is permanently flopped open, obstructing the driver's view.

After lowering the sun visor I tried to put it back up but it would not stay. If kept on falling back down. Now, this week the drivers side sun visor has started doing the same thing. Sometimes it stays up and sometimes it falls down. This can be very distracting while driving and could cause an accident.

  • 40,000 miles
Both my 2007 Hyundai Sonata's sun visors have now broke. The first occurrence was several years ago on the passenger side, after which, the visor would not stay up and would fall in the vision of the passenger. Just this month, however, the same thing happened on the drivers side. This is very hazardous, especially if it were to happen while traveling on a major highway. The problem seems to be with the assembly of the visors, which crack at the elbow which is used to move the visor around as needed. After this happens the visor then will not stay up when returned to the original position.

I pulled my visor down to block the sun. Plastic crushed and broke at the visor pivot arm. Now the visor will not stay up and this is a safety issue! visibility of the road is hindered. This is the 2nd time this has happened. I hardly use my visor so wear and tear is not an issue. This should be corrected by Hyundai but I am passed my warranty period.

My sunvisor on the drivers side dropped down and will not go back to the upright position. This is the third time my sunvisor has broken. One on the passenger side and twice on the drivers side. I have spent 100 dollars replacing the other side. I do not have any children in my car, it is just myself and my husband. This is ridiculous that it broke for no apparent reason. I have a 2004 Hyundai elantra and have never had problems with the visors.
