I know you can check the oil by turning the key to the first stop. However now every time we try starting the car it won't let us start until it checks the oil level. And sometimes it makes you check it twice before starting. This every time now.
Porsche Boxster RecallsHood Latch Fails To Secure Hood
The hood upper lock may not properly secure the hood due to a manufacturing issue. As a result the hood could suddenly open while driving, blocking the driver's vision and increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the lock on the front hood free of charge to resolve the concern.
81 vehicles are being recalled because their front passenger seats use a defective wiring harness used to control knee and frontal airbags. A loose connection can result in injury to the passenger in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the front passenger seat free of charge.
The mounting holes in the seat belt anchor plates may be too small. If the hole diameter is too small, the anchor cannot rotate around the fastening bolt as designed. If this were to occur, the seat belt may not be routed optimally around the seat occupant, or it may loosen at some point, increasing the risk of injury during a crash. Dealers will inspect the anchor plates and fastening screws and, if necessary, replace the seat belt. The Porsche recall number is AB02.
