2007 Honda Civic EX from North America
I will never buy another Honda again
Alternator needed to be replaced at 70,000.
Sun visors routinely split in half and need to be replaced.
Daytime Running Lights/High Beams stopped working at 80,000.
Car's performance is severely hindered when A/C is on.
Car gets awesome gas mileage.
However, despite Honda's reputation, this car is falling apart.
Honda admits to faulty parts/known problems but will not help in any capacity.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I find it odd that your visors would just split in half for no reason. We have an 07 as well, and our visors have never been replaced.
I will say we have had to replace our right headlight though, but that is only because I use either the Nighthawk headlamps or the Silver stars, and refuse to go back to the factory ones. A headlight problem would not cause me to diss a Civic though.

You say this car is falling apart, and then list a few minor issues as problems you've had. How does a bad alternator and a faulty headlight mean your car is falling apart? Try GM cars, and then you'll see what it means for a car to fall apart. I've had a few, and they literally fell apart.

The driver side visor split in two about 40K. Dealer replaced that at no charge.

I own a '07 Civic as well, and the visors do split. Dealer said this was a common problem, and changed mine under warranty.

Our Honda also fell apart very quickly. It was using oil at 50,000 miles, and the CV joints were hammering then as well. The car never made 100,000 miles.
On the other hand, our 10-year-old GM has well over 100,000 miles and has never had a single repair, not even a brake job. I never even bother to check the oil between the 10,000 mile change intervals, because it never uses a drop. No more Hondas (or any Japanese cars) for us ever again.
