Back in December, we reported a 13,500 recall for the Hyundai Veloster over its spontaneously exploding glass roof problem. It seems like the Korean company didn't manage to solve that out completely, and a new recall had to be issued.
If the first recall was made for cars built between November 1, 2011 and April 17, 2012, Hyundai's latest concern is about a batch of Velosters completed from July 4, 2011 to October 31, 2011.

If you own one of the cars built in the time interval mentioned above, expect Hyundai to notify you for a sunroof integrity inspection and, if necessary, a full replacement at your local dealer's cost.

According to NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), "if the assembly was weakend at the factory, the panoramic glass panel may break while the vehicle is in motion leading to personal injury or a vehicle crash."
