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
Both visors split and nonfunctional. Had same problem after 2 years and were replaced under warranty
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.
Both visors cracked and wouldn't go back in the up position had to remove them to be able to see while driving
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.
