One response to “Hyundai Panoramic Sunroof Class Action Settlement”

  1. Jean Nevius says:

    My 2017 Hyundai Sonata hybrid panoramic sunroof shattered inward while I was driving, bringing glass down on us. I called my local Bellevue, Hyundai dealer. They told me to go to the glass place they send their cars out to. No mention that this was a reported problem w/ panoramic sunroof. I contacted Hyundai & was instructed to submit color pictures & info to a website. 3 attempts before the site would let me enter info so my daughter sent it by email. Meanwhile there is a large whole in my roof covered w/ plastic. I was instructed by Hyundai not to repair it til they can come see it. After 2 snows & a heavy rain & being unable to drive it because the plastic pulls up in the Nebraska wind, I paid $500 deductible & has it replaced. When it was replaced, there was still a large amount of glass rolling around in roof. Glass Doctor instructed me that it would be another $496 + labor(& 3 hrs) to drop liner & remove the rest of the glass. I drove it with the glass rolling around in it. Hyundai has all my info but hasn’t reached a decision. I am not covered in class action suit because it was 2011-2016 models. The 2018 model no longer offers the panoramic sunroof. Hyundai accepts no responsibility for a defective product.
