Visor split along seam at back
Sun visor split
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
Both visors split and nonfunctional. Had same problem after 2 years and were replaced under warranty
suddenly split, fell into driver field of vision, and would not retract.
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
Visor come apart when lowering, has been fixed by honda, but I had to pay as it was just months out of warranty
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.
replaced by the dealership , no charge
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.
Split at the seam. I tried to glue it, but didn't work.
Had to buy a new visor second time it was replaced on driver side.
had to replace the sun visors!
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.
Visor won't stay up. Haven't fixed it yet, but have bought a replacement visor.
My drivers side sun visor does not work and had to be removed to avoid the distraction..
TWICE! But under warranty
Visor has broken withing a year of purchasing it new...could cause an accident
Two small diameter bolts with washers, some cheap epoxy and it's fixed. This is a design flaw that needs reinforcement to work properly.
driver side broke
