Okay, here's a complaint after 24 hours

What the hell is with the sun visor? Is it really meant to do ANYTHING? Bad enough they didn't put a little light with the mirror (wife's complaint), but that thing is so small and impotent, it won't block the sun EVER.

Okay, I can imagine the responses now--get sunglasses, tint your windows, etc. And yes, these are legitimate solutions, but the overriding principle stands: WHAT WAS GM THINKING??? The visors are so bad, why did they even bother installing them??

I completely agree. They're worthless. They won't even hold a windshield sun shade.

I made an extension for mine to at least cover the gap by the a-pillar.

I LOVE the visors...I am tall, if they were any bigger, with it down it would block the whole windshield...at least from my POV.

If that's your biggest complaint about the car, I think you're doing OK.

and yeah, the car is so cool, you gotta wear shades.

Hey ... if the sunvisors weren't there where would you hang yer garage door opener or your radar detector?

Actually, I'm with PowerFreak on this one. I'm 6' tall and if I lower the sunvisor I can't see. May make my driving better but lacks alot in the scenery department.

My Passport Wideband R/L unit hangs very nicely on the sunvisor and looks out the windshield just under the etching. Like it was made for it.

The sunvisor isn't totally useless. It depends on what time of day you're using it though. It was handy this morning for me but yesterday evening, the sun was already down far enough that it wouldn't help.

I wish the car had map lights either on the rearview mirror or the overhead console. The one light up there doesn't cut it.
