2nd Generation Mercedes-Benz CLS Class Sun Visor Malfunction

Since 2010, German manufacturer Mercedes-Benz has produced its CLS Class line of executive-size luxury vehicles, with the C218 as the premier sedan among its class. These vehicles are beautifully designed inside and out, with top-of-line materials and technology. As stunning as the cabins of these vehicles are, some Mercedes C218 owners have complained of issues with even the simplest of accessories.

A common complaint among Mercedes-Benz C218 concerns the sun visor on the driver’s side. The visor may open partially or completely upon quickly acceleration. They also report that it may rattle while driving down the road. Although these issues are most often reported for the driver’s side visor, the passenger side may also be affected.

Though this issue may be seen as just an annoyance, it is also a safety issue. Many drivers like to stash items behind the visor and opening suddenly may cause the contents to fall on the driver’s head. Clips designed to hold sunglasses or credit and debit cards can cause cuts or bruises and just general frustration for the person in control of the vehicle. If your vehicle is still under warranty, take it to your local German auto import technician as the repair is often covered.
