Volkswagen Group of America is recalling 7,062 2013-2015 model-year Beetles because their glass sunroofs are at risk for breaking, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports.

The risk may be particularly high if the car strikes a pothole.

The recalled Beetles were manufactured from June 13, 2013, to July 3 of this year. Volkswagen dealers will replace the sunroof, free of charge. The recall is due to get under way Dec. 19.

To contact Volkswagen, car owners can call (800) 822-8987. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 60B9.
