Volkswagen recalls thousands of cars over fears parts could fall off the vehicles and cause crashes 

Volkswagen has recalled thousands of cars in Australia amid fears part of the roof could fall off vehicles and cause accidents.

The automaker issued recall notices for 2,627 Tiguan R-Line vehicles impacted by the defect on Tuesday. 

The product recall said the the roof spoiler may partially or completely detach from the vehicle due to deviations in the bonding process.

'If the roof spoiler detaches whilst the vehicle is being driven, there is an increased risk of an accident and/or injury to vehicle occupants and other road users,' the recall states. 

The defects are in models from 2017-2019. 

Volkswagen owners affected by the defect will be contacted directly by the manufacturer to organise an inspection and repair, free of charge. 

The impacted owners can also contact the Volkswagen Recall Campaign Hotline on 1800 504 076.
