Latest Recall Affects Hyundai

Hyundai Motor America (Hyundai) is recalling certain 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT vehicles. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) the model’s panoramic sunroof motor may be incorrectly programmed.

Shop owners and dealers can expect to inspect and replace the panoramic sunroofs (if needed) at no cost to the customer. The recall is expected to begin February 15, 2019. Hyundai’s number for this recall is 179.

Shop owners can tell their customers to contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or Hyundai customer service at 1-855-371-9460 for more information.

    My panoramic sunroof has been leaking since purchased 9/2018…. bought it used. Have mold throughout. A lot of condensation coming from sunroof daily!

    How many 2018 Elantra owners have had their panoramic sunroof explode with no outside debris hitting the glass while driving? The class action suit that was settled in 2019 should be opened up again. Hyundai never admitted or fixed their design flaw. Clearly there are still problems and they will wait until someone loses their life I suppose before they recall them because it would be a costly repair. Oh and guess what sunroofs are excluded from the warranty that they love to boast about. This is insane, sadly my family bought 3 Hyundai’s they lost my business unless they stand by their product. A 3 year old car should not have a defective sunroof that explodes without cause.
