2012 Hyundai Veloster recalled for sunroof assembly

Thu, 20 Dec 2012

Hyundai is recalling 2012 Veloster hatchbacks built between Nov. 1, 2011 and April 17, 2012. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the panoramic sunroof assembly may have been weakened during installation at the factory. The report also says that the glass panel may break while the car is in motion, which could lead to injury or a crash.

A preliminary evaluation was opened in October regarding 11 consumer complaints of a shattered sunroof. Hyundai says it identified 76 warranty claims, 20 customer complaints and six field reports referring to the glass. The company is not aware of any accidents that resulted from the glass breaking.

Hyundai will notify owners, inspect and replace the glass assembly free of charge. The recall will begin in January.

Concerned owners can contact Hyundai at (800) 633-5151 or contact the NHTSA safety hotline at (888) 327-4236.
