Car sits in the sun while at work. I have tinted windows, leave them slightly cracked to get some airflow, and also use a sun shield on the windshield to keep as much heat out as I can. Still, the sun visor hinges fail and the visors hang down in your face with no way to get them out of the way except removing them from the car completely. I had one visor replaced under warranty last year, and now both driver/passenger visors are broken in the exact same manner, including the visor that was already replaced once. Driving on the highway and having the visor flip down in your face with no way to move it out of the way is a big problem. I'm a pretty tall guy, and the visor is directly in my field of vision when it falls down. Holding it up out of the way with one hand, second hand on the wheel, and trying to shift to get off the interstate to remove the visor is no easy task... as far as I can tell, there has been no redesign of this part, so it will continue to happen (seemingly every summer) even if I were to pay to get the visors replaced each year.

Plastic driver's side sun visor separated at seam during warm weather and no longer maintained up or down position. Visor became an obstruction to the driver's vision and could only be removed from view with constant pressure or complete removal.

2007 Honda Civic sun visors break and will not stay up. Driver cannot see traffic lights without holding the sun visor up with his/her hand. Visor falls back down as soon as it is pushed up. This is a safety issue because the driver's vision is impaired. Driver's visor just broke, while passenger visor also broke a few months ago -- suggests the visors are defective. Car only has 45,000 miles on it.

Driver's side visor was loose and did not stay in the full up or full down position reliably, trouble began a year after delivery and gradually became worse. In June, 2010, the visor suddenly split open and the visor hung loosely and would stay in the up position. I repaired the visor by clamping the split parts together with a U-shaped piece of stainless steel. Seems to be holding for now.

1. it has been a hot summer, and the car is parked in partial shade during the day. 2. the seam on the sunvisor at the arm has cracked open rendering the sunvisor ineffective. This is a safety issue because the sunvisor can only be moved while the car is stopped; it requires both hands and some time to move up or down. 3. it has not been fixed yet, but Honda said that they can replace the part for $60.

2007 Honda Civic defect with the sun visors. The consumer stated the plastic that holds the visor to the curved bar attached to the roof seemed to be split because of a design flaw. The design flaw, allowed the sun visors to move freely and not stay in place in the up position and they moved freely about to the right and left in the down position.

The driver's side sun visor on my 2007 Honda Civic ex 2 door suddenly burst open, it will not go in the up position now. It is a hazard with night driving since it won't go up. This should be a safety recall.

1. nothing happened to lead up to it. It just broke. 2. driver side sun visor split and won't stay up. It is safety issue when driving as it's always falling down and constantly taking my attention away from the road to try and get it to stay up or to the side. 3. tried to find a used one, but no luck. Honda wants me to pay to replace it.

I own a 2007 Honda Civic that was bought new in July 2007. In August 2007 the driver's side sun visor came apart and was hanging down making it hard to see when driving. Since the car was still under warranty the dealer replaced it for free. At the time they had told us they replaced numerous visors. Now it's August 2010 and it's broken again. The car is now out of warranty and the dealer will not replace the visor for this reason. This is a safety concern because when it comes apart it hangs straight down and can't be pushed up to stay. I have read online forums where numerous people are having problems with this issue. When I called the Honda dealer where I live now in Tennessee they said they have replaced a 'ton" of the visors. Obviously Honda has an issue with this and it needs to be recalled.

2007 Honda Civic sunvisors break - repeatedly, and hang in view of driver. I have had driver and passenger visor break and understand it is a defect that Honda does not recognize or support. Honda dealer admits that nearly all Honda Civics have had this problem.

Sunvisor on passenger side has split and will not stay up. This is annoying and a safety hazard. The drivers side did the same thing while car was still under warranty therefore Honda replaced it for free. This is an ongoing problem for many people I don't understand why Honda has not given this issue some attention in redesigning. I guess its a good money maker because the cost is not cheap. This is something you would never think you would have to replace on a car.

The contact owns a 2007 Honda Civic. The contact stated that the sun visors were warped and would continuously swing down and flap back and forth, obstructing the driver's view of the roadway. The engine would also overheat frequently and the engine block was cracked. In addition, the temperature gauges would not properly monitor the engine temperature. The engine rpms would often exhibit and abnormal increase. On one occasion while exiting the highway on an incline, the vehicle stalled and began to roll backward on the ramp. The contact barely missed crashing into a tractor trailer. The manufacturer advised taking the vehicle to a dealer for diagnostics testing. The manufacturer also stated they would cover ninety percent of the engine block repairs. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where the contact was awaiting repairs. The vehicle had been in the possession of the dealer for over one month. The current and failure mileages were approximately 74,900.
