Hyundai recently reported issues with loose windshields that could “pop-out” in the event of an accident, causing potential injuries to the driver and passengers.The recall includes 9,596 Sonatas, 8,561 Santa Fe models and 8,256 Elantra models, for a total of 26,500 vehicles from 2020-2021 model years. According to Hyundai, No accidents or injuries have been reported to date.
According to the NHTSA(National Highway & Transportation Safety Administration), the windscreens in the affected vehicles may not have been properly attached to the vehicle due to an issue with “non-conforming, clear coat paint”. If an accident did occur, the windshield could detach, which leaves the occupants in harm’s way due to flying debris and other hazards.
