Recall Alert: 2012 Hyundai Veloster


(Cars.com)

Hyundai is recalling 6,071 versions of the 2012 Veloster hatchback due to panoramic sunroofs that could crack, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This is an expansion of a December 2012 recall that affected 13,500 Velosters with panoramic sunroofs.

The affected vehicles were manufactured from July 4 through Oct. 31, 2011 (check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb), and are equipped with panoramic glass panels. In these cars, the panoramic sunroof assembly may have been weakened during factory installation, which could cause it to break.

Hyundai will notify owners starting in March 2013, and dealers will inspect and replace the sunroof glass assembly for free. Owners can call Hyundai at 800-633-5151 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more information.
