2007-2009 Volkswagen Touareg recall for flying spoiler

Volkswagen is recalling 14,416 Touareg vehicles between model-years 2007 and 2009. The fastening struts on the roof edge spoiler can crack, causing the spoiler to become loose and possibly detach from the vehicle without warning, even though initially the spoiler may feel secure.

If this happens, the spoiler could cause injury by striking persons outside the vehicle or could become an obstacle to other drivers, possibly resulting in a crash.

Dealers will install reinforcement wedges to the roof edge spoiler free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during July. Owners of troublesome Touaregs may contact Volkswagen at 1-800-822-8987.
