After reading about it exploding, I'm gonna get it wrapped with a clear 3m wrap, this way at least it will hold it together if it shatters.

My '15 Genesis Ultimate's front pano panel blew up on a cold, snowy day last winter going down the interstate at 70 mph. Scared the bejeezus out of me. I am certain nothing hit the roof. I think the temperature differential between the exterior and heated interior caused it. Dealer replaced under warranty.

Man, that sucks, I'm gonna get a piece of 3m clear bra and cover it, some extra insurance I guess since I will be doing the bumper.

I received a notification of a class action lawsuit settlement concerning Genesis' exploding sunroofs a couple of weeks ago.

I filled out a form and sent a copy of my repair order from the dealership in order to get $200 for inconvenience and psychological pain and suffering.

Mine was covered by warranty, but Hyundai will also reimburse people who incurred expenses getting theirs fixed, including renting a replacement ride.

I have not received any notice about the pano roof for our 2015 Ultimate CPO Genesis sedan purchased August 2018. I wonder what criteria Hyundai is using to notify owners, or second owners.
