Engine, July 11, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The turbocharger turbine wheel may fracture due to a casting defect. If a fracture occurs, vehicle performance will be decreased and the turbine shaft may also fracture. If the shaft fractures, oil can be drawn into the exhaust system, resulting in excessive smoke and the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the turbine wheels to correct this concern. The Porsche recall number is AC04.

For Models: Porsche Panamera Turbo

Body, Interior & Misc., April 30, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Adjusting the front seats to an extreme forward or rearward position could adversely affect the seatbelt locking mechanism and the seatbelt mount could detach from the anchoring system when the seat belt is fastened or opened. In the event of a crash, the seatbelt may not properly protect the seat occupant, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will install an additional locking element on each front seatbelt anchoring system to address this concern.
