    Question spontaneous shattered tinted glass wind deflector 2015 Genesis

    Members don't see this ad
    Yesterday while driving my 2015 Genesis sedan we heard a loud bang at first we thought something dropped on top of the sunroof but we were on the interstate with no trees near us, no traffic near us ,no overpass above us, when I stopped the tinted glass piece in front of the sunroof was cracked all the way across with no sign of an object impact at all. I took it to the dealer and they said they will call me. Anyone ever heard of this?

    Are you talking about the optional sunroof wind deflector?

    I wonder if it has anything to do with Santa Fe's pano roof exploding out of nowhere?

    I thought the wind deflector was plastic? Glass would seem like a bad idea for this type of piece.

    In the 1st Gen, the Sunroof Wind deflector was indeed plastic. Not absolutely certain that the original poster is referring to the sunroof wind deflector, though. For clarity, does it resemble the item listed below (which admittedly is for the Genesis Coupe, but I'm linking for the picture):

    I just had the same thing happen today as I was driving down the highway. Nothing seemed to have hit the roof, just the popping sound and then the sound of the glass as it was shuffling around the roof. I set an appointment with Hyundai for tomorrow morning, but at first conversation they of course indicated it is not common and would not be covered under warranty without a claim filed with Hyundai Corporate. I am wondering what the outcome was of your situation, did they end up covering it for you?

    Your picture to me shows it to be a stress fracture not something like a hit damage..... Hyundai should pay not your insurance company

    This has been reported before. If I were you, I would do an exhaustive search of this forum and find all the other posts of members who have had the same problem. Then send it to the dealer and HMA.
