I was driving my Hyundai Veloster on a smooth paved hwy, going about 60 miles/hr, on a sunny day, sun shade open/ moonroof closed when the moonroof exploded (imploded). There were no other vehicles near me and no debris in the roadway. The explosion was extremely loud, sending shattered glass throughout the car, in my clothes and hair. Thankfully my 2 yr old grand daughter was not in her car seat in the rear, she probably would have lost her eyesight or worse. The explosion was so loud, it sounded like a truck ran into the car. I closed my eyes for a few seconds because of the glass falling down on me. I'm not sure how I was able to keep from losing control of the steering. I was terrified and still have not wanted to drive the car since.

I was driving my car down a country road. No cars in front of me and none coming towards me. My husband was following behind me because we had just picked up car from having its first oil change and tire rotation. I was doing between 45 and 50mph. All of a sudden there was a loud bang like a gunshot and I heard something raining down on my car. I looked in the mirror and saw glass flying everywhere. I pulled over and asked my husband if something hit the car. He said no - it looked like the glass in the sunroof blew straight up like a coke exploding. The glass actually hit the front of his car. The glass was in my hair, down the back of my shirt and pants. The glass scratched me in several places.

The car does not accelerate properly. When at a full stop and I press on the gas the car does not move however, the rpms are high but the car takes 5-6 seconds to go and it doesn't go very fast and there have been times I was almost hit. My car jerks when I try to accelerate from a slow speed, it is the same movement as if you were running out of gas and actually jerks my neck. My rear driver's window shattered for no reason. It was in the drive way and when I went out to work in the morning, it was shattered. There is no impact sight as evidence that something had hit it. I am very unhappy with the car and wish I never bought it.

New vehicle was parked on the street. At 8:00 am I was informed by a fellow worker that it appeared my vehicle was damaged and there was glass all over it. I found that the skylight had burst upward and outward. It was about 80 degrees at the time. The day before was above 90 degrees and the vehicle was parked in same location, without incident. I called dealer who referred me to national service. They came and towed car to another dealer closer to home. Day 8 and dealer claims to have replaced glass, side rails and now needs to replace deflector that all were damaged. Says soonest repair to complete July 2nd pm. Updated 8/14/12 updated 08/15/12

Veloster 4-cyl

  • 50 miles
There is one serious safety defect with this car, the side mirror adjustments (in particular the passenger's side). The dealership has not been able to properly adjust the mirror and they stated that the limited adjustable was "just how it was designed." Therefore, I would like this researched further and corrective actions taken. This car is not as safe as it should be. Specifically, when a tall, larger person has the seat set in the far back position, and sits up fairly high, the right side mirror cannot be properly adjusted, and in combination with the rear view mirrors and the left side mirror, it creates "blind spots, " and, in particular, a very large "blind spot" to the right--very dangerous when changing lanes or passing!
