NHTSA has launched an investigation after receiving 15 complaints from drivers that said they heard a long bang, following a shower of glass above their heads.

One woman said she was driving home from getting her first oil change and tire rotation on the Veloster.

“All of the sudden there was a loud bang like a gunshot, and I heard something raining down on my car,” one woman said. “I looked in the mirror and saw glass flying everywhere… The glass was in my hair, down the back of my shirt and my pants.”

All owners that have filed complaints have had less than 3,000 miles on the odometer.

Hyundai spokesman Jim Trainor said the company is working with NHTSA to look into the problem.
