The sunvisor may come apart or split causing it not to remain in the stowed position. On some models, Honda has extended the warranty on these sunvisors to 7years or 100,000 miles. Please contact your local Honda dealer for more information. To find a Honda dealer near you please click here»

    sunvisor has been replaced on drivers side twice by honda. broken again. next owner will repair. add to the list of motor mounts, control arms, new tires every 20k miles, alignment every 10k, now paint is cracking on the hood. Car is garaged since new and well taken care of. Quality is suffering at Honda, at least on Civic models. Taking my money elsewhere next year, not to Honda

    I have had to replace both sun visors every summer since I bought the vehicle as the glue that holds them together melts in the NM summer

    Two small diameter bolts with washers, some cheap epoxy and it's fixed. This is a design flaw that needs reinforcement to work properly.

    Visor plastic split and will no longer retain visor in up position. I had to drill some holes in the visor and use some threaded posts to temporarily repair the visor. Bad design.
