Volkswagen of America, Inc., Case No. CJ-05-205), alleging, among other things, that certain 1999-2002 MY Volkswagen Jetta IV Sedan/Wagon vehicles sold by Volkswagen, are defective in that the front bumper cover and related components, including the front spoiler, part no. 1J5 805 903 B, can be damaged if the vehicle is backed off a parking barrier, curb, or similar obstacle onto or over which it has been driven, according to the Volkswagen VW Jetta Spoiler class action settlement notice.
