#2 - Wiper problem of the 2009 Hyundai Accent

#3 - Wiper problem of the 2008 Hyundai Accent
As I was driving my 66k mile 2008 Hyundai Accent GLS I put my driver sun visor down and it literally snapped off in my hand last night and I am driving and trying to hold it up so I can see the road!. This wiper problem happened on Tuesday, Sep. 3, 2013.
#4 - Wiper problem of the 2008 Hyundai Accent
The vehicle having this issue was a 2008 Hyundai Accent. While driving my car the sun visor came out of the socket and would not stay. This was a shock and could have caused an accident due to unexpected internal failure/defect of car part that was not caused by the driver, anything living, dead, real or unreal. This has happened to the drivers side and was fixed by a Hyundai dealer a few months back, now the passanger side sun visor is doing the same. I would have taken it back to the dealer but when the drivers side sun visor was replaced I was told that the warranty for something like this was up. Whats going on with these sun visors, are they programmed to give out after a period of time? this is not ok!. The failure date was 06/23/13.
#5 - Wiper problem of the 2009 Hyundai Accent
The car involved was a 2009 Hyundai Accent. Driving down the highway at approximately 50 mph, there was a very small bump in the road which caused the sunvisor to fall and totally block my vision. Now it will not stay up. Upon investigation, this is a very common problem on many Hyundai's. They recalled some models, but most they did not. This is a known problem because the replacement part has been completely redesigned. It was Mar. 5, 2013 when this wiper issue occurred.
#6 - Wiper problem of the 2009 Hyundai Accent
The vehicle had a crash. The vehicle involved is a 2009 Hyundai Accent. The contact was driving approximately 10 mph during the night and attempted to merge into a lane when suddenly, another vehicle crashed into the front driver's side door. There were no injuries. A police report was filed of the incident. The contact was able to drive the vehicle from the scene of the crash. The failure was contributed to the rear window edges that were designed with darkened material, causing a blind spot. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the problem. The approximate failure mileage was 14,200. This problem occurred on Saturday, Mar. 16, 2013.
#7 - Wiper problem of the 2006 Hyundai Accent
The vehicle is a 2006 Hyundai Accent. Driver's side visor would not go up for a year and hung down, affecting my visibility and was a huge risk when driving. Due to the visor hanging down, it eventually became weak on the left corner and was hanging by the electrical cords (for the light) and fell off completely. Now I do not have a visor at all and it affects my driving immensely as I have nothing to keep the sun out of my eyes. I have contacted Hyundai several times about this issue and they claim to know nothing about it, but I know four other Hyundai owners who this has also happened to. It was 08/01/2012 when this wiper issue occurred.

#9 - Wiper problem of the 2009 Hyundai Accent
The vehicle involved is a 2009 Hyundai Accent. While driving, I pulled down the sun visor to shield my vision from the sun. I heard a strange cracking noise and the sun visor became very floppy. It will no longer stay in the up position, and this posed a visibility problem, and so I was forced to remove the sun visor. Now I have no way to shield my eyes from the sun, which also poses a visibility problem. This wiper issue occurred 08/01/2012.
#10 - Wiper problem of the 2006 Hyundai Accent
The vehicle having this issue was a 2006 Hyundai Accent. Driver's side visor breaks off attachment- hangs from ceiling unless locked into place-useless and potential hazard. Lamp connected to opening the mirror cover does not work. Had it replaced at the beginning of the year following breaking. Last month- right side visor breaks in the same fashion and once again, does not stay unless locked into place, a potential hazard, useless and the lamp that is supposed to turn on when the mirror cover is opened does not work again. Many people have had the same issues. Needs to be recalled, this is apparently a defect of the parts. This problem occurred on Sunday, Dec. 18, 2011.
#11 - Wiper problem of the 2011 Hyundai Accent
The vehicle is a 2011 Hyundai Accent. While driving on the highway it suddenly started raining very heavily. I turned on my windshield wipers and nothing happened. The wipers did not work and I was unable to see. It turns out the windshield wiper motor failed. Apparently this has been a problem in the past and recalls were ordered, but not for my model year even though the problem apparently still persists. Looking on Hyundai Accent message boards and forums this is a common problem. Please issue another recall and Hyundai fix their cars before someone gets killed. This wiper issue occurred 09/01/2012.
