Hyundai Recalls Velosters

DETROIT (December 19, 20120--Hyundai is recalling about 13,500 Veloster hatchbacks in the U.S. because the vehicle's sunroof can shatter and cause injuries.

The recall involves cars from the 2012 model year.

Hyundai said it knows of no crashes from the problem, but five people have received minor cuts.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration began investigating the problem in October after getting complaints from customers.

The company traced the problem to a manufacturing defect that damaged the sunroof glass.

Hyundai says it will start notifying owners by mail in January and will inspect and replace the panoramic sunroof glass if necessary.
