Both Sun Visors On Our honda civic Would Not Work And Then Eventually The Glue Melted And They Cracked And Fell Off. We Have No Way Of Securing Our Visors And Have Recently Heard Of A Recall. I Can’t Find My Vin Number Within The Limitations Of The Recall But I Don’t Feel Like I Should Have To Pay For The Repair. *tr

I Had Pulled Off The Freeway Exit And Proceeded To Follow The Cars Ahead Of Me As The Traffic Signal Light Had Turned Green And Did Not Necessitate Me Stopping, Only Slowing Down To Continue My Left Hand Turn Onto The Surface Street. Suddenly Without Warning The Sun Visor Flipped Down Without Being Touched And Hit Me In The Forehead. The Hard Plastic Edge Hit Me Relatively Quickly And Knocked My Prescription Glasses Off. There Was A Moment When I Had My Vision Obscured And Did Not See The Vehicle In Front Of Me Come To A Rather Sudden Stop. I Narrowly Escaped Hitting The Back Bumper Of The Vehicle Ahead Of Me. Fortunately I Was Traveling At A Relatively Low Rate Of Speed, Maybe 20 Mph Which Probably Would Have Caused Minor Damage, If Any. However, People Can Be Injured By Whiplash Even In Low Speed Rear-end Collisions. I Have Secured The Visor With A Bungee Cord For The Moment Because The Dealership Wants To Charge Customers For This Defective Part Plus Labor And It Is Not Cheap. I Am Afraid That The Bungee Cord Might Snap And Cause A Different Sort Of Injury; However, There Really Is No Way It Will Stay Up Against The Interior Cabin Roof Without It. I Would Like To Add That I Recall My 2002 honda civic Had The Exact Same Problem Which Occurred On Both The Driver’s Side And Passenger’s Side At Different Times. Also, At Certain Times Of The Day The Sun Is So Blinding In California Where I Live That It Is Extremely Hazardous To Not Be Able To See The Road And Highway Signs And Lights Without The Assistance Of A Visor To Block The Glaring, Bright Light Of The Sun. In My Estimation It Is Only A Matter Of Time Before This Obvious Defect Causes A Major Fatality Accident. *tr

I Noticed That 2 Days Ago It Was Raining Inside My Car I Bought The Car Brand New Off Of The Lot In 2008. The Areas That Are Leaking/collecting Water Are Where The Side Front Airbag Is Located, Along With The Windshield, And Side Of The Door. Called The Dealer They Are Telling Me That My Warranty Has Expired Therefore I Will Need To Replace The Windshield And Other Components (roof, Airbags,etc.) The Car Has Never Been In An Accident Or Anything And Now I Am Almost Scared To Drive It Since They Are Telling Me That It Is The Windshield I Am Petrified That It Will Implode Soon. This Seems Extremely Dangerous Now I Am Unsure That If I Get In An Accident Because Of The Water What If My Airbag Won’t Work Upon Impact? What Happens If The Windshield Implodes While I Am Driving This Issue Is An Accident Waiting To Happen. *tr

I Had Bought My Car New In March 2008. It Is 4+ Years Since And Due To Work Commute I Have Accrued More Than 132k Miles On It. This Summer, About Last Week, Suddenly Both The Sun Visors Got Cracked About 2 Days Apart. I Was Heading Out For Lunch, And I Flipped Up The Sun Visors To Remove The Sun Reflecting Sheet From The Windscreen. And The Sun Visors Simply Cracked. Now The Sun Visors Are Not Staying Up And It Partially Blocks My View All The Time. Keeping The Sun Visors Turned To The Side Also Is Not Very Practical. I Looked Up Online To Learn That The Sun Visors In 2008 civics Have A Manufacturing Defect That Causes Them To Crack ( Http://visorsettlement.com/ ). When I Went To The Dealer To Fix It, Unfortunately They Can’t Be Fixed For Free Because The Visor Warranty Was Extended Only Till 100k Miles And I Am Already At 132k+ Miles. honda Should Replace The Visors Regardless Of The Mileage Because It Is A Manufacturing Defect And Not The User’s Fault. Does The Extended Warranty Of Just 100k Miles Mean That honda Is Not Responsible For Its Own Fault After That Limit? I Would Appeal honda To Fix The Sun Visors For Me For Free. Just Because I Have To Commute More For Work Everyday Does Not Mean That This Class Action Settlement Right Be Taken Away From Me. *tr

After The Recall For The Sun Visor Melting, I Got Both The Driver Side And Passenger Visor Replaced Last Year. Its Been One Year And They Melted Again. honda Repaired Them But I Do Not Want To Have To Go In Every Year For A Replacement. They Need To Fix The Underlying Issue. The Warranty Was Extended But Only For 100,000 Miles Or 7 Years. If They Continue To Use The Same Visor, Then After 7 Years Or 100k Miles, It Will Still Be A Hazard. My Friend In Arlington Also Has The Same Make And Model And She Is Having The Same Issue With The Already Recalled And Replaced Visors. *tr

Right And Left Sunvisors Both Split At Seems And Falling Down. Melted From Extreme Heat And The Right Visor Has Now Completely Come Off Of Metal Bar.

I Was Blinded By The Sun And Nearly Had An Accident Due To Being Unable To Adjust My Sun Visor. This Is Not The First Time I Have Had This Problem With The Visor. The Original Visor Was Replaced By honda After It Split Apart At One Of The Hinges And Didn’t Work Properly. I Believe That honda Replaced The Original Visor With An Identical Visor, Rather Than Having The Visor Redesigned To Correct The Flaw, Because The Replacement Visor Eventually Split Apart In The Very Same Way That The Original Visor Split Apart. I Have Now Had To Get The Replacement Visor Replaced And I Am On My Third Visor. This Is Not Acceptable As A Functional Sun Visor Is A Basic Piece Of Equipment That Is Essential To Safety. I Expect Better Of honda. *tr
