1999 VOLKSWAGEN JETTA Recall

Item Affected: STRUCTURE:FRAME AND MEMBERS

Date Announced: 02/05/1999

1999 VOLKSWAGEN JETTA Recall

Item Affected: STRUCTURE:FRAME AND MEMBERS

Description of Recall: VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: PASSENGER VEHICLES. SOME OF THESE VEHICLES DO NOT COMPLY WITH THE HEAD INJURY CRITERION REQUIREMENTS OF FMVSS NO. 201, "OCCUPANT PROTECTION IN INTERIOR IMPACT." THE UPPER RETAINER CLIP NEAR THE BP1 IMPACT LOCATION IS DESIGNED TO BREAK WHEN IMPACTED BY THE HEAD FORM.
