Recall all of the Mazda3s and make the sun visors extendable when pulled across to the side windows, geez. You would think that any idiot would have thought of that by now. :roll:

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.

Actually, I don't mind that so much - I wast to know why they put plastic visors with no vanity light in??

Seem to have read somewhere that it had to do with side airbags....don't remember where I read that though.

I think M3-GT was talking about sun visor extensions interferring with the side curtains, not cloth or vanity lights affecting the SAB/SAC.

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.

honsetly.. you could have simply not replied... :? a bit rude... and instead of "good luck" what I would prefer is for people to not reply with completely unhelpful info.

Maybe we can retrofit some from another mazda that has better ones. Of course I realize there would be some size differences but it might be a start for us that already have the car.
