    I doubt that Mitsubishi has bothered to find a solution to this. I will be looking for different visors from a European manufacturer at the scrap yard when I get a chance. This has bothered me since the first 5 months of ownership.

    When I bought mine, both visors were discolored a weird pinkish color on one side. I thought it was because they might've left them folded out while it sat on the lot, but it was exactly 100% of one side, the discoloration stopped immediately right at the seam where the back side started. The dealer ordered new ones for free but it took 2 weeks to get them.

    It's vinyl, my picture may be a bit out of focus.

    Yours were discolored at five months old? (assuming you bought it new?)
