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»

Sun visor split
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
