Well, that didn’t take long. Earlier this year the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) opened an investigation into shattering sunroofs in the 2012 Veloster. Now Hyundai has issued a recall for that exact problem.

According to official documents, Hyundai believes the sunroof glass may have been damaged during mechanical installation at the factory.  Any damage to the glass can cause it to fracture and fail under pressure.

It could be an installation problem, but it could also just be an unfortunate side effect of modern car and glass design.

Hyundai refuses to acknowledge that their sunroofs have been exploding under normal driving conditions, but they’re offering plenty of coverage to owners if (or when) it happens thanks to a 2019 lawsuit settlement.
