Automaker Hyundai is recalling tens of thousands of vehicles due to a defect that could cause the vehicles’ windshields to detach during a crash.
ConsumerReports.org reports that Hyundai is recalling 26,000 sedans including 2020 and 2021 model year Elantras and Sonatas. According to the report, faulty adhesives may have improperly bound the windshield to the vehicles. The defect can allow moisture into the car and may produce a wind sound when the vehicles are moving.
