NHTSA Wants to Know Why Veloster Sunroofs Keep Shattering

2012 Veloster owners should keep an eye out for a possible sunroof recall. Just keep that eye pointed down, or risk getting some glass in it.

The Office of Defects Investigation, a part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, is taking a close look at the 2012 Hyundai Veloster after receiving 11 complaints that the sunroof exploded.

One Veloster driver said their sunroof exploded while driving and the next thing they knew, shards of glass were pelting them in the head and face.

The ODI only investigates safety-related issues. And I’d say that glass falling into people’s faces while driving definitely qualifies.
