While I was driving, my sunshade visor fell down as if it were moved to block the sun while I was driving (I did not do it). I immediately pushed it back up because I could not see, it blocked my entire front windshield vision. After pushing it up, it fell back down within minutes. I immediately took it out of the holder and put it to the side. After researching the issue it is a common known issue. Service advisors say "they all do that". My question is, why would such a dangerous issue be widely accepted" Is increased chance of accident and death acceptable when it can be fixed" I have stopped 23 separate people and asked them about their sunvisor and EVERY SINGLE ONE had this same issue (ranging from 2015 to 2020).

The driver and passenger visors have both lost the ability to stay flush with the ceiling of the vehicle. With the material of the cloth on the ceiling I have not been able to get any tape to safely secure the visor. The visual area that you are able to see out of the vehicle is greatly impaired. I was quote a $400-$500 repair from the dealership to fix one. When it originally happened to the passenger side. I have uploaded photos of the drivers side how it sits now, pushed forward, and it held flush with how it should stay. I was driving when T adjusted the visor and it lost tension.

The driver side sun visor doesn't stay up. This issue first happened about a year ago. I dealt with it for several months before finally buying a new one. Having replaced it once already, I knew this likely wasnt going to be a recall issue, even though thousands of people complain about in Jeep forums every year. Now, 4 months after replacing it, it has failed again. There are multiple things I dont like about this vehicle, but not being able to see out the windshield while driving because the visor is constantly falling down is a serious issue.

There's is no alternative to the windshield and Jeep has them on backorder since 2018. It's been over a month and Jeep cannot provide release date. This is a huge safety and visibility issue
