Civic 4-cyl

  • 43,000 miles


I own a 2007 Honda Civic si which has faulty sun visors. The visors appear to be made of two separate pieces which separate apart in the heat. Due to this separation, they do not "grip" the little arm which is connected to the ceiling; therefore, the visors cannot be pushed up to the ceiling. No-matter-what the visors drops down and returns to the position it would be to be used (for example, if the sun is in your eyes).. however it is a distraction and a complete nuisance to any driver. I am petite and it obstructs my view; however, if anyone else who is taller than me attempts to drive my vehicle they cannot see straight in front of them because the visor will not stay in place against the ceiling.. obviously this is a major safety hazard. Moreover, the passenger visor separated last week and has the same faulty issue as the driver's side.

Sun visors split in half. Once the visors are split, they will not hold a "tucked up" position, but rather will hang down and obstruct the driver's vision. The problem is chronic and there is now a class action lawsuit that has forced the vehicle manufacturer to extend the warranty on the sun visors. However, the broken visors are being replaced by another visor with the same design defect. After a brief period of use, the new sun visor also fails. The vehicle manufacturer needs to create a new design without the flaw and replace the old design with the new design at the manufacturer's expense.

I am a resident of charleston SC and it gets fairly hot here with summer month temperatures. I have a 2007 Honda Civic and the sun visors ( both of them) have melted, cracked and broken from my car getting warmer inside while sitting.the visors hang in the line of view for myself and passengers of my vehicle. I feel that this car is fairly new, and a safety issue like this should not be happening this is pretty common occurrence after researching this.

Sun visor in 2007 LX Civic coupe failed in hot weather. The plastic melted and spring broke through so that it does not function and partially obstructs view. Replaced the visor the first time in 2008, and the new one broke again in 2009. The part is not under warranty by Honda.

A sun visor failed, again. This is the 3rd time. First was the driver's side, second and third, passenger's side. The melting of the visor insides, due to high ambient temperature, is now a known defect to many owners and the dealerships. Driving with the sun visor stuck in the down position can be very dangerous when a taller driver is present. Also, the issue is not easily mended unless the visor is taken in to be replaced. Which was free the first two times, but now costs around $100.

The sun visor in my 2007 two door Honda has broken and will not stay in place. It gets in the way of my vision and distracts me when trying to drive. The design flaw of the visors in this car is major. It will not stay up and falls down in front of my face. A few times it has caused such a distraction I almost ran off the road trying to keep it out of my face. This occurs every day and I have to move it to the side which bothers me. Nothing has been done to correct this failure. I am not paying $100 for a replacement which will only end up failing anyways. Honda needs to own up and make a recall so that this design flaw does not cause crashes or any deaths due to the major distraction it creates to the drivers.

Driver's side sun visor cracked along seam and falls down into vision of driver. Can't be restored and you can only get it out of the way by pushing it to the side. It does not remain anchored there and when you turn it moves.

I drive a 2007 Honda Civic, and lately the driver's side sun visor has been difficult to move. This has been happening for over a year now, and last week I noticed the casing near the rod around which the visor rotates cracking. Today the visor came off completely and I realize that the teeth securing the visor to the rod don't rotate around the rod anymore, forcing the plastic in the visor to warp and eventually break completely. This causes the visor to stay completely down, blocking much of the field of vision. As the vehicle is out of warranty, I'm sure I'll have to pay for the part.

I have a 2007 Honda Civic, and the driver's side sun visor hinge is defective. It broke, and the visor is no longer adjustable -- it just hangs straight down. Judging from the number of complains being registered elsewhere online, this is a very common problem. It is also a safety concern, as I am now blinded by the sun or have the visor blocking my field of vision. I will contact Honda to request a free replacement, but as my car is out of warranty, I will probably have to buy a new one.

The contact owns a 2007 Honda Civic hybrid. The contact stated that the front driver side window would not close properly. The window would derail and bounce back down while attempting to close. The contact stated that the window had to be closed manually. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where the technician stated that the glass and rail would need to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 42,000. Updated 06/01/11 updated 1/24/2012

2007 Honda Civic ex 4 door (60,000 miles), drivers side sun visor split open at the seam and now hangs down and blocks forward and side line of sight. I believe this to be a safety issue. This happened once earlier when my car was under warranty. The dealer gladly fixed it. My car is now out of warranty and I don't want to pay 100+ bucks for a design issue that I'm not responsible for.

I have a 2007 Honda Civic coupe and both the passenger and driver sun visors have become loose and hang down in the way constantly. The driver side visor has now detached and is of no use for blocking sunlight. There have been many times that my vision as a driver has been compromised due to the lack of protection from the sun visor. I feel extremely unsafe driving in direct sunlight, even with the protection of sunglasses. The passenger side visor seems as though it will eventually detach as well. The failure has not been corrected, as it happened just after my car wasn't under warranty anymore. The replacement of these visors will cost $75 each and my Honda dealership doesn't guarantee that the new visors won't have the same problems that the old ones had. I have done research and many other Civic owners are having the same issue with the visors. It is imperative that Honda corrects this problem and has a recall for the sun visors, otherwise as a consumer concerned about my safety, I will not want to purchase another Honda.

problem #128

Jul 012010

Driver's side sun visor split open and blocks line of sight because it won't stay up or at any angle and goes straight down, blocking the visibility of street lights especially. I have to go into Honda to have it fixed now and don't know if my warranty covers a simple sun visor or not, but if not I have seen reports online that this is going to cost me about $100. I could use the "in this tough economy" line, but regardless of the economy who wants to spend $100 on something so simple and silly as a faulty sun visor because a multi-billion dollar corporation doesn't want to spend a few bucks of their money on making this right? sorry this got a little editorial but it is just frustrating.
