Volkswagen Australia has recalled the 2017-19 Tiguan R-Line to fix a problem with the roof spoiler.

According to the company, deviations in the bonding process mean the roof spoiler could partially or completely detach from the car.

If the roof spoiler detaches from the car on the move, it could cause an accident and presents a risk to the driver and other road users.
