RepairPal Expert Overview:

Volkswagen has recalled certain 1998 Cabrio, 1997-1999 Jetta, and 1998-2003 Passat models because the fuel tank filler neck can suffer abrasion damage if the rear tire goes flat and the vehicle is driven until the tire disintegrates.

Body, Interior & Misc., March 15, 2000

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Volkswagen has recalled certain 1999 Jetta models because they do not comply with the head injury criterion requirements of FMVSS no. 201, "occupant protection in interior impact." The material of the trim part on the upper retainer clip near the BP1 impact location may be more impact resistant because of variations in the molding process. This may prevent the clip from breaking on impact, which can increase the risk of injury in a crash. Dealers will remove the trim cover from each of the B pillars and install a new cover.
