    Default Both sun visors broke same day on my 06 honda civic coupe ex.

    Has anyone else had a problem with there sun visors coming apart from the heat and busting all the plastic snaps out? Dealer wants 65.00 a piece for them.

    Yes. We had that exact same problem. Driver side went a 15k miles. Passenger was starting to go. Since it was under warrenty, they fixed both for free. 80k miles, no more issues.

    Yes, It was annoying as hell too for those who dont know what we are talking about.

    I had to grab the part holding the joint to move the sun visor.

    My warranty was gone at 75k now i have 86k. The dealer here will not work with you at all. The cheapest i found visors were 34.00 and through someone's discount. probably same thing will happen again. So far i have had 2 wheel bearings replaced,battery at 29k,visors busted,Interior A/C lights burned out. I think i might just use velcro on the cieling to hold my visors instead of buying new ones.

    That sucks. Were those two wheel bearing part of that recall? You should not have paid for those if they were, because ours were. I go through a battery like every 3-4 years. I tend to sit in my car listening to the radio with the engine off for extended periods of time. Honda's batteries come with 100 month warranty, so I just keep getting free batteries =)

    it's the heat. I have stuff failing on my car that never gave any trouble B4. Adhesives for example.

    Wheel bearings were replaced under a recall. The last shop i went to said they used really cheap wheel bearings because the one on the rear driver side went out again.I had a 4 wheel alignment done also.

    Yea, im trying to get that done also. Dealer has said its been needed since 20k. My mom is so tight fisted when it comes to car repairs, she usually lets these things go until they break. It annoys the absolute crap out of me. Spend 200 bucks to avoid a 500 buck repair....
