You're not alone but I've not heard of any aftermarket or dealer add-on extenders to help us so for now I just raise the seat a bit or squint and bear it. Anyone found anything?

I find the top corner of the windsheild never gets covered, and for some reason, that is the spot that always has the sun shining right through. I kinda just gave up on the visors and carry around a pair of sunglasses .....
it's worst when the sun in on the driver's side and up there near the top of the windshield, but far enough back that the visor is not long enough to block it. yes, it is tall enough but it should extend all the way to cover the entire side window.
for the front, i guess some people will choose to place banners to block out the top few inches of the windsreen. (besides to limit and focus their vision on the road ahead)
Arizona is only 400 miles from the sun, so sunglasses are a laughable solution. I'd need welding goggles to drive without the aid of a visor. Nevermind the fact that regular sunglasses would melt.
I'm sure the '04 models will have a proper visor we can all go buy, but in the interim I'm going to keep an eye out for one of those plastic slide-out extenders featured on all other cars. Hopefully I'll spot one that looks reasonably adaptable.
