Hyundai recalls 63,000 cars because sunroofs could fly off

The recall affects 2015-2016 Hyundai Sonatas with panoramic sunroofs.

Hyundai is recalling 62,811 cars because their sunroofs could go flying off.

The recall affects 2015-2016 Hyundai Sonatas with panoramic sunroofs, both regular and hybrid vehicles.

According to the recall, the extra large sunroofs have a "wind deflector" to reduce noise when the sunroof is open. But due to "insufficient bonding" that deflector may detach.

"If the wind deflector becomes partially detached from its mounting points after the sunroof is opened, it can interfere with the moveable sunroof panel while the sunroof is being closed," the recall says.

Then the glass sunroof panel may detach from the rest of the vehicle, fly into the road and be hazardous to other drivers.

So far, Hyundai is not aware of any accidents or injuries relating to this recall. However, there have been reports of sunroofs detaching.

Signs that this may be happing to your Sonata include increased noise due to a loose wind deflector and not being able to fully close the sunroof.

If your vehicle is affected, Hyundai says it will send you a notice in the mail to get the problem fixed.

Earlier this week, the company recalled 84,000 vehicles due to airbag issues. The Consumerist says that recall affects 2010-2016 Hyundai Genesis Coupe vehicles.

As with the sunroof recall, Hyundai says it will notify vehicle owners via mail.
