Korean automaker Hyundai is recalling approximately 63,000 vehicles due to concerns that its sunroofs may malfunction and cause harm to motorists, an October 20 article for Fox Business reported.

According to the recall, earlier and present models of Sonata vehicles are equipped with possibly faulty glass sunroofs. In the papers submitted by Hyundai to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the sunroofs may suddenly detach during operation and strike other motorists on the road if the anchor plate of the wind deflector fails. Hyundai is blaming a manufacturing problem for the issue. Hyundai and the NHTSA have not received any injuries or accidents involving the sunroof problem, however, there were incidents of sudden detachment of sunroofs. Starting December, Hyundai will notify affected owners for the free repair of their vehicle.
