Potentially Affected Vehicles

Due to possible poor adhesion of the accessory rear spoiler to the vehicle body, there is a risk of the spoiler coming loose and falling off the vehicle. If the spoiler falls from the vehicle, it can become a hazard on the roadway for other traffic, posing a potential crash and injury risk to others.
Dealers are required to review their part sales records and immediately contact any customers to whom an affected rear hatch accessory spoiler (Part Numbers 5NA-071- 644–C9A and 5NA-071-644–C9X) was sold, and replace it with an updated one free of charge. Dealers are also required to post the flyer found in Appendix A of the campaign circular as directed.
If the recall condition is present on the vehicle, customers may notice that the spoiler has become loose or separated from the vehicle hatch. If this happens, customers are advised to contact an authorized Volkswagen dealer to have the issue addressed without delay.
