Hyundai Announces a Recall on the Hyundai Veloster Due to a Shattering Roof
Are You Driving a Potential Lemon Hyundai Veloster?
The 2012 Hyundai Veloster is a sleek car with a huge sunroof. That would seem to be a great selling point. However, in light of the most recent recall from Hyundai, consumers might think twice about having a giant sunroof. Hyundai announced the recall of over 13,000 Hyundai Veloster due to a sunroof which could shatter while driving.
Hyundai has stated that this recall is due to a weakened panoramic glass caused during the assembly process. This weakened glass can cause the glass to shatter while driving. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has reported 11 incidents where these panoramic glass roofs in these Hyundai Velosters shattered while driving. The NHTSA has not reported any injuries or accidents due to this defect.
Hyundai will begin to notify consumers next month of this recall due to the weakened glass in their Hyundai Velosters. Customers will bring their vehicle into a local Hyundai dealership, where their cars will be inspected, and if necessary, the glass will be replaced at no cost to the consumer.
