Sun Visor Doesn't Extend - 2016 Toyota Prius Long-Term Road Test

Our 2016 Toyota Prius Four Touring is hardly a sparsely equipped base model, yet its driver sun visor does not slide backward when flipped out to the side. That's a disappointment in any modern car.

    It's a safety issue. it should be mandated by law. Being able to see is kinda important to not dying in a crash.

    Not sure if you're in favor or opposing extending visors...

    I like my MINI's set-up: separate side visor. Works great, too!

    haha I'm for it. I'm saying being blinded by sun is no good.
  • I agree...It's so annoying that the visor doesn't have an extension. It doesn't do any good as it is. If anyone knows of an aftermarket visor that would work, please let me know.

    I agree. The design team would only have to spend 15 minutes driving this car on a sunny morning or afternoon to recognize that this is a serious design flaw. THIS SHOULD BE A SAFETY RECALL. I have already had multiple occasions where sunblinding could have caused an accident when driving this vehicle.
