Hyundai Accent owners have reported 46 problems related to wiper (under the visibility category).
While approaching intersection with green light, drivers visor fell down and completely blocked visability. Light changed causing three car accident. I was hospitalized due to injury and am now talking to an attorney about suing Hyundai as this is a known problem and has not been recalled nor have auto owners been advised of issue. From searching web there are thousands of Hyundai vehicles which vary in year of car that have this issue. I am going to put out feelers for class action law suit and wonder why the government has allowed people to be injured, if not killed, due to this malfunctioning auto part.

The driver's side sun visor just fell as I was driving. . . The left side of the visor where it attached up into the roof of the car has a tube with the wire in it for the light - the light no longer works, and the tube dropped down - I can push it up in there, but falls again. . . Fell down suddenly as I was driving and hit me in the face. . . Had to react fast to avoid not seeing and getting in accident. . .

Drivers visor won't stay up. Falls down continually blocking visibility while driving.
The driver side sun visor was broken, so it fell down while I was driving. It has potential danger. And it is hard to find a replacement. Tthough the dealer can provide the part, it's ridiculously expensive. I hope Hyundai makes the part more sustable and the genuine part can be available more. Thanks.
When I turn on the reas\r to clean the winshield wiper does not clear the water when I look thru the rearview mirror the wiper goes back and fort and does not wipe the water off when it rains does not wipe off the water.

Driver's side sun visor suddenly broken, piece inside rod cracked or broken. Won't stay up and falls down hazardously blocking view. Not covered by Hyundai and hundreds of other owners seem to have same problem.
Driving during normal conditions at 45 mph, for no reason the drivers side sun visor dropped down and impaired my vision. I pulled over to the side of the road and try to return it to its normal position with no success. I have tried velcro and tape but it will not stay up. It is serious driving hazard, and judging by forums on the internet, many, many people are affected by it. Hyundai should do a recall and have the issue fixed.

Wife, 64,was driving our one-owner 2004 Hyundai Accent gl on private road approx 15 mph when airbags deployed without any impact of any sort to vehicle. Wife was badly bruised on arms and face and windshield was shattered by passenger side airbag cover when bags deployed. We were fortunate that she was not on busy street or on interstate as this would have certainly resulted in a wreck with severe bodily injury or possible death. Local Hyundai dealership (perkins motors, colorado springs) refused to do anythiing. Hyundai hq customer service committed to "sending us a packet of paperwork to be filled out and returned to them by us and they would get back to us in 6 to 8 weeks once it was received to see if they would do anything. " no one from Hyundai has expressed any interest in seeing the vehicle or responding to a potentially very hazardous vehicle. I am very concerned about their lack of any sense of obligation to see what went wrong and how it might be avoided in the future. Their attitude is that it's our problem and the fact that it is a major safety issue doesn't concern them in the slightest.

I was putting the sun visor back up in place and the arm by the door snapped. It hung in my way the rest of the drive. I had to hold it out of the way most of the time to see. It obstructs my visibility tremendously!!! it is very distracting!!!! please do something about this.
The passenger side sun visor made a pop and won't stay up. The drivers side sun visor fell down and will not stay up. The drivers side sun visor falls down into the line of sight. The drivers side sun visor will not even stay up in the hole that goes into the ceiling. It is hanging by the spring cord.

I was done shopping and starting the car, the sun was in my eyes so I pulled the sun visor down and I heard a grating noise and the visor popped out of the ceiling and hung by the wires, it appears the plastic piece it screws into snapped in half, I had to hold the visor with 1 hand as it was in my line of vision as I drove home. When researching for a new one I found this was a common issue with these cars and some even happened while the car was in motion, very dangerous, this is a problem and needs to be corrected.
While traveling approximately 50 miles per hour on six lane divided highway, I attempted to park the sun visor in the full up (out of the way) position. It made a strange noise and fell all the way down in front of my face. Fortunately, I was able to react quickly and hold the visor up out of the way, thereby precluding any accident. This did occur during the heavy traffic of rush hour, and I have no doubt that this could have easily caused a potentially disastrous accident. My family also owns another, 2008 Hyundai Accent, which my son drives. The same issue also occurred while he was driving his just within the past few months. I have found many instances of both driver's side and passenger side visors breaking in the same way, obstructing the vision of the driver immediately (even if the passenger side visor breaks/falls). This is a serious safety issue.
Passenger seat sun visor broke. By 'broke' I mean that the internal spring mechanism to keep it folded up failed so it now flops down into the line of sight and interferes with visibility. It cannot be folded back up out of visibility, it just keeps flopping straight down. Judging from comments on forums, this is an extremely common problem with Hyundai sedans, and is a big safety hazard, especially if it happens to the driver side visor, because of how it can suddenly fail and interfere with visibility.
The sun visor broke on the driver's side and dangled by a connecting wrie obstructing my view. The lip on the on post that holds it in place broke off and can not be fixed. This was very dangerous and I had to remove the visor from the car.

Drivers side sun visor broke while driving into the sun. Will not stay up on its own. Visibility is a extremely hazardous situation with this visor in your way.
The driver side sun visor keeps falling down. I've had this happen on my 2007 Hyundai sonata as well. From the research I've done online, all Hyundai model years 2006-2009 have the same issue with the parts used in the sun visor. I'm no longer under factory warrenty and the dealer won't fix it. This is a manufactor issue.
2009 Hyundai Accent driver side sun visor just wont stay in up position. My car has very few miles for being a 2009 model for this to happen. I am a male and never use the sun visor for the mirror or the sun because I always were sun glasses. My visor falls now and impedes my driving. This should be a safety recall because if this were to happen while I was driving, it could have cause an accident. I have found many similar complaints online as I researched this problem for a possible recall from Hyundai.
A few months ago the the visor in my 2010 Hyundai Accent on the driver side stopped staying up. I have read multiple complaints on this indicating many are having this problem.
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.
Passenger sun visor come out. Put it back in through the hole but did not stay. Few months later, driver side sun visor came out as well.
Left sun visor snapped off as I was leaving my driveway on a sunny day. I disconnected the wiring and visor so as to improve visibility. I am waiting for a recall in order to have the repair/replacement completed.
I was driving on the interstate when my visor simply fell and hit me in the face. It will no longer stay up or in the "down" position, it only hangs there blocking a good portion of the windshield. I have to use the rear view mirror to prop the thing up so that I can see to drive. I feel fortunate that when it fell it did not startle me enough to cause an accident. It is a hazard to not be able to use it in the sun, I live in arizona and it is brutal here. The passenger side visor is also starting to show signs of not staying in place, not as much of a safety issue, but still a problem.
The drivers side sun viser will not stay in place anymore and just hangs down, which hinders visability and gets annoying.
While driving in the city my driver's side sun visor fell down right in front of my field of vision. It had to be removed because it would not stay up anymore.
I have had my 2008 Hyundai for several years now, and I love it, but the plastic pieces/sun visors in the model have broken off. I have looked for some online, and they have ridiculous prices. It seems to be a large problem with Hyundai, and eventually someone's life/lives will be endanger, because the visibility isn't great. I have tried to fix them but, they both driver/passenger need to be replaced. I checked out reviews online, and many people have complained of the visors just breaking off quickly. Please know that because my warranty is up, I cannot replace them but, this is an ongoing issue with not only myself but, several others around. This product needs to looked at. I would not recommend anyone to this vehicle if I knew how much plastic visors/ handle would break off so easily.
