 Description of the problemWhile driving on the parkway at approximately 60 mph, the sunroof of my 2012 hyundai sonata shattered. I heard the glass fall onto the thankfully closed sunshade as well as run down the back of my car, scratching the roof and trunk. I pulled over at the next exit and called the police. A state trooper came and stated that he did not feel that there was any evidence of an impact to cause the damage. I feel that this simply was a failure of the sunroof due to a manufacturing defect. I know there is a recall of another hyundai model of the same year. I have also read reports in automobile forums of other sonata experiencing the same issue. Including this one documented by nbc news. Http://www. Wkyc. Com/news/investigative/article/288566/230/investigator-exploding-sunroof-sounds-like-gun-shot to date, hyundai has refused to cover this, stating that it is not a warrantied part.
