THE REAR DOOR (THERE'S ONLY ONE) ON THE PASSENGER SIDE WILL NO LONGER OPEN EITHER FROM THE OUTSIDE OR THE INSIDE. THERE APPEARS TO BE MANY COMPLAINTS OF THIS ON THE VELOSTER ONLINE FORUM. I NOTICED THIS WHEN I WAS ATTEMPTING TO OPEN IT WHEN A PASSENGER WAS GOING TO SIT THERE. THEY HAD TO CLIMB IN AND OUT OF THE REAR HATCH. THIS WOULD DEFINITELY BE A SAFETY ISSUE IN AN EMERGENCY.

Summary of Complaint

MY 2012 VELOSTER RECENTLY STARED MAKING A CLICKING SOUND WHENEVER I TURN. IT SHAKES WHEN I'M ON THE HIGHWAYS GOING 70 MPH. WHEN I RUN OVER ANY SMALL BUMPS IT MAKES A CLACKING NOISE AND HARD TO CONTROL THE STEERING WHEEL. IF I SWITCH LANES AND RUN OVER ONE ON THE MARKERS ON THE ROAD THE CAR FEELS LIKE IT SLIDES TO THE SIDE THAT I SWITCH AND THE STEERING WHEEL IS DIFFICULT TO CONTROL. I DON'T FEEL SAFE DRIVING THIS CAR. I CHECKED UNDER THE STEERING WHEEL IN THE DASHBOARD AND THERE'S OIL LIQUID LEAKING FROM STEERING WHEEL AREA. IF I'M AT A STOP SIGN AND TURN THE STEERING WHEEL IT MAKES THE CLACKING SOUND AND IT FEELS LIKE THE STEERING WHEEL IS COMING LOOSE.

Summary of Complaint

MY SON WAS DRIVING WITH THE PANORAMIC SUNROOF OPEN AND GETTING UP TO SPEED ON A 55MPH ROAD. HE WAS GOING APPRX. 35-45 MPH WHEN THE SUNROOF SHATTERED. HE WAS CONFUSED AND ALL VEHICLE PASSENGERS WERE OK, THEY PULLED OVER. NOBODY WAS HURT. WE LOOKED UP AND THERE WAS A PREVIOUS RECALL FOR THIS SORT OF THING HAPPENING. THEY SPENT THE NEXT FEW HOURS PICKING ALL THE GLASS OUT OF THE VEHICLE AND THEIR CLOTHING. WE CAN NOT CLOSE THE SUNROOF ATTACHMENT AND HAVE TAKEN OUR VEHICLE TO HYUNDAI TO BE TOLD IT IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE RECALL.

VIN: KMHTC6AD2CU****

Summary of Complaint

DRIVING, THE CAR WAS IN MOTION, STRAIGHT NORTHBOUND INTERSTATE 55 AT 70 MPH AND SUDDENLY I HEARD AN AGGRESSIVE LOUD EXPLOSION, SIMILAR TO THAT OF A SHOTGUN, GLASS WAS CRUMBLING ALL OVER ME AND THE INTERIOR OF THE VEHICLE. THE PANORAMIC SUNROOF PANEL EXPLODED INTO BITS AND PIECES AND A PORTION OF THE SUNROOF TRACKING/FRAME DANGLED ON THE DRIVER SIDE SCRATCHING THE NARROW PIECE OF FRAME. NO APPARENT REASONING OR CAUSE FOR THE EXPLOSION. NO VEHICLES ON ALL SIDES OF ME , NO ROCKS OR ANY OTHER OBJECTS FOUND THAT COULD HAVE CAUSED THE BREAKAGE. I WAS TOLD BY THE HYUNDAI DEALERSHIP MY VIN NUMBER WAS NOT LISTED AS A MEMBER OF THE RECALL GROUP OF 2012 VELOSTER'S THAT HAD SAME COMPLAINTS MADE OF EXPLODING SUNROOFS. I CONSIDERED MYSELF BLESSED TO HAVE NOT BEEN CAUSED BODILY INJURIES BY THE EXPLOSION AND BLESSED THAT MY INSURANCE ALLOWED REPAIR EXPENSES TO BE COVERED UNDER COMPREHENSIVE INSURANCE. ONCE IT IS REPAIRED I WILL DIVERT MY FOCUS ON TRADING THE VEHICLE IN FOR A MORE RELIABLE AND SAFE VEHICLE WITH NO SUNROOF FEATURE TO CAUSE FUTURE COSTLY CHALLENGES FOR ME TO HAVE TO SUBMIT A CLAIM WITH MY INSURANCE.
