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
Sunvisor on both sides split open and won't function. Honda will not do anything except sell you the parts for their low quality install.

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.

It happened to my Honda Civic 2008. I have extended warrantee. But it was still a hassle.

Broken driver's visor I fixed it as a temporary measure but poor design.
Driver's side visor is broke so much that it wouldn't go back up. I eventually had it torn off. Now I stuggle when the sun is low while driving. Havent' gotten it fixed yet.
