Sun Visors May Not Retract as Designed on Honda Civic

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»

Both visors split and nonfunctional. Had same problem after 2 years and were replaced under warranty
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

Both visors cracked and won't stay up just like all these other posts. Did some research and there's an aftermarket place that sells redesigned Visors that don't break for Hondas. Was about 140$ for both. Took about 20 minutes to replace. Only need a screwdriver.

Drivers side sun visor splits open when you push it down to block the sun. When you push it back up to the retracted position, it does not stay up and out of view.

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.
