Visor Recall?

Don't know if this is true . My husband said my Honda dealer called and said there is a visor recall and my 2007 Honda Civic can be taken in to get them replaced.

He wants to borrow my car on Friday so he can take it in and I can drive his truck to work.

My birthday is on Sunday so I don't know if he wants to borrow my car for another reason...like a birthday present...sound system etc.

I have had to get my visors replace three times already Twice on the drivers side and once on the passengers..I hope Honda has finally decided to replace them.

Anyone else heard of a visor recall?

I don't think there is a recall on them but there is a TSB.
Here is a link to another thread where I posted the tsb. Its on the second page about 3/4 of the way down the page.

Faulty visors!

i am with him, but tell your husband, next to use something more believable, like NASA wants to use your car, to send it into space, not that lame visor recall.

Thanks for the TSB! I printed it out to bring to Honda here, because they don't know anything about the bad visors, my passenger visor is split just like everybody elses due to the sun......Thanks!

they sent a letter in the mail to my house and said there was a recall for the visor in my car and that you can take it to get fixed if your car has less than 100,000 miles on it, which sucks because mines broken, but my car has over 100,000 miles on it!!!

I got a letter in the mail from some attorney in California and Honda is now fixing sun visors on 06-09 Civics for 7 years or 100,000 miles. Check with your Honda dealer. Honda replaced both my visors for free and I have 62k+ miles.

Just wanted to throw this out there but I actually went ahead and fixed my visor myself today by drilling some holes in the visor and securing the visor closed with some zip-ties. May not look as nice but I will never have to replace my visor or worry about it again.
