Recall roundup: Hyundai Veloster in Australia image

Hyundai has recently announced a recall for the Veloster in Austria because of a problem with the model’s panoramic glass sunroof.

After announcing a recall back in December 2012 for the Hyundai Veloster in the United States because of a problem with the panoramic glass roof, time has come for the carmaker to expand the recall to Australia too, because of the same problem. According to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), a total of 882 units of the Hyundai Veloster will be affected by this recall, and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers.

“The panoramic sunroof glass may have been damaged when fitted to the vehicle. A damaged sunroof glass may fracture unexpectedly when the vehicle is parked or being driven. If the defect occurs, it may pose a laceration hazard to occupants of the vehicle”, as the ACCC’s official website is explaining.

A total of 882 units of the Hyundai Veloster sold in Australia between the 1st of November 2011 and the 17th of April 2012 will be affected by this problem. The recall is expected to start soon but Hyundai Australia didn’t announce an exact date for the moment. We advise you to contact your local Hyundai dealer if you own a Hyundai Veloster equipped with the panoramic glass sunroof.
