problem #5

  • 79,000 miles
Driver's side visor broke and dropped down blocking vision while driving.

- Pottstown, PA, USA

problem #4

  • 94,000 miles
The sun visor will not stay up. There is a plastic part inside that holds it in place and that apparently broke. The sun visor is not usable and just hangs down obscuring my field of view. This is a huge danger since I can't see more than 50 feet ahead of my car now and will not have time to slow down for an accident.

- Saint Paul, MN, USA

Driver side sun visor fell and will not stay up. I've done some research and found that the Hyundai sonata had a recall for the same problem.
