2020-2021 Hyundai Santa Fe, 2021 Sonata, and Elantra Vehicles Recalled for Inadequate Windshield Bonding

Hyundai Motor America has announced that they are recalling 26,413 vehicles in America due to the potential of the windshield detaching during a crash.

The Problem

The National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that during the manufacturing of certain 2020-2021 Santa Fe, 2021 Sonata, and Elantra vehicles, the windshield may not have been properly bonded to the vehicle, allowing it to detach in a crash.

Urethane is used to bond a windshield to a vehicles chassis. The urethane acts like a glue or adhesive that holds the windshield in place.

A vehicles windshield provides the necessary strength and rigidity to secure the structure of the car in case of an accident. Potential of the windshield detaching during an accident could weaken the structure of the vehicle, causing greater harm.  

The Fix

Hyundai dealers will remove, inspect and reinstall the front windshield panel, at no cost to the owner.
