Sunvisor way too small-Upgrades?

Does anyone else fiind the sunvisors way too small for side shading? I'm hoping to find something that has an extension or slides out when needed. Can't understand why they don't slide out on the arm...

Not only that but the rear view mirror is too big and abstracts my view, or maybe that's cause I'm 6'-5" and sit too high lol. But you're right, it is too small even in the first gen Versas.

The sentra isnt even available with slide out visors. The altima with convenience package is prolly the cheapest car to buy with exstensions. It sucks. For I am 6'2 myself, and with the seat all the back, theres a good gap where the sunlight hits me everytime, cause im far back. They need to be able to extend to the edge of the door. I was thinking of replacing them with some other nissan/infiniti visors, but they are to expensive to buy just to see if they fit,

It's a way to cut costs for production to keep the car affordable since it's an entry level sub compact. You're better off finding a salvagable sun visor off another car or buy an extension.

Yea I wish they had slide outs too like my GT has since they are really handy. I am like you guys however and don't like the idea of buying others to see if they fit or not.

OK, so if anyone finds an aftermarket solution or knows of a swap that fits, chime in! I'll keep looking....

You think the sun visors on the Versa are small? My 2012 Camaro are pretty much useless. Smallest visors i have ever had and they don't extend out so side window sun block is non existent LOL

Sounds like a job for cardboard and duck tape. You might be a redneck if.....

My solution to the useless Visor. A strip of tint film at top of front window (which suppose not to be tint). That may not look pretty, but surely blocked sunlight during my commute hours(both way).
It's just enough to block the sunlight but won't block my view to road at all. It's a DIY, so is not perfect nor pretty,; but sure does its job well.
