I have a 2007 camry that I have been very happy with until now. The visor on the driver side began to slowly become floppy about 6 months ago. Now the visor will not stay up at all. So, I have been reduced to manipulating the visor with handle (above the window) in order to keep the visor from inhibiting my view. Problem is when the sun is setting I can't easily take the visor down in order to see the road without glare from the sun. I called the dealership and they were anything but helpful saying it would be around $150 (out of my pocket) to fix. If this wasn't a reoccurring problem that affected safety when driving I would suck it up and deal with it but clearly from looking at all the reports on the internet it IS a problem with the mechanism with A LOT of cars made in 07 and 08. As a business I feel Toyota should recognize that it made a mistake and correct it.

You're probably correct. Meanwhile, go to a local bodyshop and get it fixed.

Has the rest of the car given you good service? If so, perhaps it's prudent to just get it fixed. 150 bucks is not a big deal in the life of a car.

MY 2007 Camry visor is the same problem. I have to take it out because it is too difficult to drive with visor in front of my eyes

150 bucks is a lot for a $5 part!

That may be, but if that's the only thing wrong with your car, consider yourself lucky. Lots of people have bad engines, transmissions and air conditioning systems, a lot more than 150 bucks.

I have an '07 Camry and this is the second time my driver's side visor has loosened up. I called the dealer to get it fixed and they said to bring it in because they had the part. I went in and they said "woops we don't have the part in." I called a week later and they said the part is on back order. It wouldn't be a problem except my warranty will expire in a couple of weeks. I just hope they get the part before my warranty is up, otherwise there is going to be a problem becuase this is the second time. I love Toyota but this is obviously an issue with these cars.

As long as you brought it in before the warranty expires, they will cover it.

I also have an 07 SE, my wife babied the visor for months until it finally gave way. The extreme price the dealers are charging is un called for...Toyota is making a killing on these repairs and should be ashamed. I have owned 7 Toyota's and there track record has been great until I bought this one. It's had alot of small problems that equal alot of time sitting in waiting areas. When it finally came down to it, I ordered the visor from a company in California. Almost half the price and 10 minutes to install. By now they should at least stop charging labor costs because there have been way to many problems to call this a coincidence.

I just left Toyota having my 4runner serviced and the parts department reported Toyota is replacing the visors. The parts are on backorder, but called your dealer if you have any further problems with the visors...

My visor broke two years ago. It flopped in the down position. Lived with it until this summer when I paid big bucks to have it fixed in June 2012. Then it started flopping again and I was told it is happening a lot. Before they could order a new one and install it, the entire thing fell in my lap while I was driving!

Now I am heading back to the dealer and I'm totally disgusted. FL sunshine is brutal and I need a visor to drive.

I think they owe me money for the replacement.

I have a 2007 Camry also with the same problem. My issue began with the visor on the drivers side when the vehicle only had 29, 000 miles and a rew months later the visor on the passenger side gave out and is no longer attached to the head liner of the vehicle.

I drive an hour one way to work everyday and twenty mins into my drive the sun is coming out and I am totally blind by the sun. It really suck if you car pool for someone else to go through the same thing.

Toyota has agreed to replace the visors, but it's on backorder. I took the easy route, ordered the part through a third part distributor and took the 30 minutes to replace it myself, and i've had no more issues so far.....it's been 8 months and the wife is still happy so I'm still happy.

Wouldn't it be easier to just get it fixed? It's not that hard.
