 I have a 2008 hyundai sonata. the sun visors continue to fall down or sag. i've had both visors replaced within the last year and half. luckily, my car was still under warranty. however, they have failed again since then, and now my sonata is out of warranty (i have exceeded 60k miles). my research shows that the visor tension rod loses tension over time and eventually fails resulting in visor sag. obviously this is an ongoing problem because the replacement visors haven't been re-engineered, this according to a hyundai rep. you don't have to be a rocket scientist to see the hazard here -- the visor can block the driver's view or worse scalp you if in an accident. what does hyundai do? they check your warranty status and replace it with same defective part, or worse, if out of warranty, they offer to sell you a replacement at $85.00. really!! the dealerships claim no responsibility as does apparently the hyundai corporation, which should be investigated by the nhtsa for failure to acknowledge a recall. how many complaints does it take? and why are hyundai consumers stuck paying for a safety defect that is unambiguously clear? if you don

 Had car in shop in for the dash to be replaced due to cracking all the way around the air bag compartment on the passenger side in 2007.this a 2006 model hyundai sonata-dash is cracked again in the same area as before completely around the air bag compartment fear this could cause injury or air bag to deploy without accident dealer states it is owners problem & expense as it has been just over 2 years since replaced the first time and there is no recall issued for this problem-feel that this is a defect in material & a safety hazard that could cause an accident or injury. *tr
