    Well I called Toyota and told them I'm not happy with the quality of my visors, because they were sagging. After many rounds with corporate and two arbitrators later Toyota said they would send me something to fix the problem. Thinking I had won a huge victory for all Toyota owners out there I went home and waited for my "fix" to come in. Sure enough I received a package and instructions on how to fix my sagging visors.

    Before Sorry for the dark pictures


    and After!


    Great success!

    It was a bit of an odd fix, but with the economy the way it is I'm glad Toyota took the time to listen and fix this known issue. I have been told by VERY high level executives that this new "fix" will be included in all new Toyota's.:eek:


    Oh and in case you are wondering what the fix is....





























    Yes folks, I'm kidding. A little satire to lighten your day :)

    I went down to Ace and picked up some Velcro for $3.99 and fixed my visors. Just FYI if you want to do this place the velco on the ends of each visor.

    Velcro also works great to mount your garage door opener that doesn't fit on the inch and a half thick visor.

    I hate how the visors are so damn thick i can't fit my garage door opener on them. I need to chop them in half so they are thinner or something.

    Not having the compass/temp thing & having the cubby thing for the garage door opener is great, IMO. No saggy extendo visors here, either. How often does anyone ever use those extender things anyway?

    My 2010 has a clicking/popping sound when the visor is pulled down. Sounds like it is breaking:eek: but upon closer inspection this is the way it works. I have my Valentine1 radar detector clipped to the drivers side visor and keep it level by pulling the visor down about 1", works great. My '02 Tacoma had a tighter feeling visor than the 2010.

    Velcro is good stuff in the same category as duct tape.:D
