Hyundai expanded its recall of Velosters on Thursday over faulty sunroofs that could spontaneously explode.

The automaker recalled about 13,600 of the vehicles over the same problem in December, and is now adding about 6,100 more to the list, according to The Associated Press.

That brings the total to 16,900 recalled vehicles in the U.S.

The Velosters added to the recall were built from July 4, 2011 through Oct. 31, 2011, according to the AP.

No injuries or crashes have been reported, although Reuters reported that 11 consumer complaints had been filed with the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the sunroof's integrity and replace the sunroof glass assembly, as necessary, free of charge.

The safety recall will begin in March, the Los Angeles Times reported.
