Can anybody give any reason why Tesla has the cheapest looking visors you can imagine? My first used car ($3,500) in the early 80's had better visors. How expensive can it be to put in a decent visor.
Thank you, robert22 & Gas Killa. The question is what happened to those promises?
Promises, like the ones from wives all over the world, become null and void when one's significant other demands them to be fulfilled...
Solutions to problem are not personal attacks.
Crass language is quoted from the movie Terms of Endearment. I was invested in tesla only enough to pay for my car.
For those complaining about whiners on this forum, I think you miss the point. I'll admit there are some out there who do whine, but most of us just want to provide helpful input which the Tesla design team will hopefully read and fix, thereby making a great product that much more desirable.
BTW, I didn't see anybody mention the lack of extenders on the visors just like 99% of the cars out there have. Maybe Tesla wasn't focused on these items, but is it asking too much for Tesla designers to sit in any car, take a look around, and make a list of those conveniences which we all take for granted like places to store things, grab handles, rear cup holders, a driver's floor mat with anchors so it doesn't always slip around, and yes, visors with extenders?
Whining or useful input? You decide.
I like the visors - they work for me and I drive into the sun on the way to work and the way home for much of the year (but it is a reverse commute so I am not complaining). Of course they could be improved, but...
What I would much prefer is electrochromatic visors that could be increasingly lowered, that I would go for. Same for the driver side window in particular.
Thank you for your positive, useful input - dfoxhw.
George B. Stated over a year ago lignted visors would be retrofit in every car. Since then not a word on the subject. I dont tnink anyone is whining and for those posting amazon alternatives perhaps those ideas should be sent to Tesla since they are having such a hard time designing something. Since last August there has not been a word on this except "we have no information" that is getting old. If you love your car the way it is, then pass on the visors however there are those who would appreciate them and as I have said before they were promised several times.
Well said, Suprkar.
For those that are having a difficult time with visors ... Perhaps sunglasses may help? There's ample room to store a set (Rx or not).
I personally don't use the visors or sunglasses. I recognize that I'm an aberration, but I have very powerful squinty eye muscles that allow me to block 99.999% of all rays (visible, UV, X, infrared, microvwave, etc).
I wonder what the car would look like without visors at all? Maybe like a person with their eyebrows shaved off?
The sun visors are still on my due bill from Feb 3. The question about the pano sunshade was answered. I can't remember if it was Jerome or George B, but TM did announce that the sunshade was abandoned and will not be developed or delivered - TM engineers found it created too many problems and added nothing to the car.
I too have had the same problem. I've been using a product called The SunPatch though....works great...Easy to use and you can move it with the sun. Check them out. www.thesunpatch.com
Looks great. Is it usable for direct reflection from the frunk hood?
You can use them anywhere on the window....I use it on the windshield most of the time cause I'm always driving into the sun. I don't think you are supposed to use it on the windshield directly but it's better than not being able to see at all.
The visors work perfectly for me. If they were any bigger, they would block too much of the road.
If you're concerned about the appearance of the visors, I'd have to agree that the government required saftey notices don't add to their appearance. In other threads in this forum there are instructions on how to remove them without damaging the visors.
Yeah, sue the bastards...
So we're quibbling about visors?
With everything that Tesla has to deal with in a new automobile, and all that they have 100% correct, the visors are the issue.
I had a problem with the visors when I test drove an "S" years ago. The damn visor hit me in the forehead. I notice that that problem is fixed in my ride.
Yeah, I'd expect lighted visor mirrors in the car, but I am an early adopter of a new car that has lots more going on than a lighted visor.
exPGAhacker and ausdma, your wives are the luckiest women in the world!
My wife leaves her lighted mirror in her Lexus RX350 on all night all the time. She basically drives with the mirror open 90% of the time because she loves looking at herself. In fact, she looks at the mirror more than she looks at the road. I'm glad the mirror and the visor is so small in the Model S, my wife won't be tall enough to look at herself all the time and that makes her a safe er driver in my Model S.
