Hyundai recalls Veloster coupes over shattering sunroofs

Posted: Updated:

Hyundai Motor Company is recalling more than 13,500 of its new Veloster coupes after a problem was discovered with the sunroof that can cause it to shatter.

The company reports that some of the cars, which feature a panoramic sunroof design, were involved in situations in which the sunroof shattered and rained down glass onto the driver and passengers.

The recall involves the 2012 model year.

At least five people have suffered minor injuries as a result of the broken sunroofs.

Hyundai says the assembly of the sunroof may have been weakened during installation.

Consumers have complained of the same problem in vehicles made by Kia, Hyundai's sister company.
