The driver's side sun visor just failed. How ridiculous!! This is a safety issue, and it needs to be fixed.

I am the sole owner of the vehicle and pride myself on keeping my vehicle looking new. I was very upset when my visors broke within 2 weeks of each other with no warning or reason! The replacement visors are at the lowest $132 a piece. I had no choice but to replace them due to this being hazardous on the road. Hyundai was unwilling to help me or even point me in the right direction. This may deter me from purchasing a hyundai in the future. Take better care of your customers Hyundai.

The Sunvisors on the Hyundai Elantra were reported to be defective in hundreds of internet postings. Both of mine are broken, and will not stay up for long. They fall down at unexpected times, creating a safety issue, in that they obscure the road. On contacting Hyundai Motors, they refused to handle and suggested I see the dealer instead. The dealer said, corporate is responsible for the design flaw, and they need to provide authorization to have them replaced with the newly designed visors. for now, I have glued them in place. It is my feeling that since this is a poorly designed product, with hundreds of reported failures, each being a safety issue, Hyundai owes it to their customers, to fix the matter and absorb all the costs associated with this issue. It would not surprise me to learn of accidents being caused by this part failing at the wrong time. Hyundai motors should be ashamed of themselves for not stepping up to handle this matter. The cheaply made plastic rod just breaks off over time, as both of mind did. As a result of not being able to trust this brand of cars anymore, I suggest you look for a brand that feels their customers are worth the effort of fixing a known design flaw. I will look at the Honda instead, if nothing else, it is easier to spell their name. Both visors are broken Hyundai, and you hide under your desk to save a few dollars. I sure hope this posting creates a massive loss of business to you.
