I am surprised that no one has created this topic before today. I haven't been in a MZ3 yet to see how "bad" these visors are, but it is a small thing that I am surprised got overlooked by Mazda, considering all the innovative features that the MZ3 has
I heard somewhere the reason for not having extensions is because of interference with the side curtain airbags if they were to go off. Not sure if this true, but it makes some sense.
Mnemonicj has a point, although a recall may be a slight overreaction. How about visors like old Intrepids, where you'd pull the visor to the side, be able to extend it all the way across, and there was a second, smaller visor that could be folded out to block a little sunlight through the windshield. Oh, and lighted visor mirrors would be nice too.
definetley overlooked by mazda..cheap,no lites..but the rest of the interior is quite nice,a step up from the competition !
6 weeks old 1000 miles ..fist oil change at dealer n/c..ovefilled by one quart ! drained it off at home..next oil change i pay and will check stick prior to leaving..
so any aftermarket or mazda mirrors that we can replace them with? It'll be a bitch for them to add any sort of light once they haven't wired for it. Watch, 2005 will have lights int he mirrors and an extension. I don't mind the light so much b/c you can use the spotlights sorta, but no side extension was pretty irritating driving to work this mornign with the sun on the side of my face.
it's totally worth it. I'm not talking about the center spot between the 2 visors, but the driver-side window. It covers the front half in front of your head, but leaves the back half totally exposed, which isn't too cool when the sun is right there.
ok i understand were you mean i usually never move my visors, only up and down
i will be tinting the windows to legal limit soon
it gets much to hot in florida.. i also use a front custom sun relector most people do here
anything to cut the heat here the summers are brutal ..
