I just got this email regarding a recall for 2021 Sonatas regarding the windshield assembly.

No remedy yet.

Just checked my VIN (2021 Sonata 1.6T) and there is nothing for my vehicle at this time.

Thanks @jmillet for the recall ID, putting this here so people can see easily,

Affected Production Dates (2021 Sonata): OCT 29, 2020 - DEC 17, 2020

Begin : NR End : NR Not sequential

The subject vehicles include 9,596 model year 2021 Hyundai Sonata vehicles produced on 10/29/2020 through 12/17/2020 by Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama (“HMMA”) for sale in the U.S. market.

Just looks like cars with Axalta clear coat paint did not allow for adequate adhesion for the windshield.

It applies to the Elantra and Santa Fe as well. NHTSA has all the paperwork as well:

For those of you doing a VIN search, be patient. Hyundai has to send all the affected VINs to NHTSA first. You can see from the PDF I linked to that they plan to notify owners by 2/25, so I would wait until closer to that date before doing VIN searches.

The PDF file says that this affects 2021 Hyundai Sonatas produced 10/29/2020 - 12/17/2020. You can find your car's production date on a tag located on the inside of the driver's door below the tire pressure tag.

I just got an alert as well. It also affects 21 and 22 Santa Fe's. My guess is Tuscon's as well.
Across the board I'd say.

Now to make a decision, the recall states that in a collision the windshield can come loose. It doesn't say that it can come lose in normal driving. Why would I want a dealer messing with my windshield that's fine now and mess up the calibrations on the HDA cameras? Time to wait to see reports on just how messed up the dealers will make the repairs and also considering the length of time for new engines and transmissions, the windshields will probably take longer than the rust out time of the car!

Do you not see the PDF I linked to above? Tells you exactly which cars are affected and when. No 22 models in there.
