Vehicles Affected: Approximately 63,000 model-year 2015-16 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid sedans manufactured between Dec. 8, 2014, and Aug. 18, 2015, and Sonata sedans manufactured between May 28, 2014, and March 18, 2016, all equipped with an optional panoramic sunroof

The Problem: Due to a bonding issue with the sunroof wind deflector, the sunroof panel on the affected vehicles may detach while driving, causing a potential road hazard and increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will repair the wind deflector anchor plate for free.
