Porsche recalls

 

For Models: Porsche Cayenne, Porsche Cayenne Diesel, Porsche Caynne Turbo

Electrical & Lights, October 17, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

207 Vehicles are being recalled because the fuel gauge may indicate more fuel than is actually in the fuel tank and the calculated range displayed on the instrument cluster could be higher than the actual range available. As a result the vehicle could run out of fuel unexpectedly causing the engine to stall, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will update the instrument cluster software to correct this concern.

For Models: Porsche 911

Exhaust & Emissions, February 22, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

This condition affects only certain Carrera and Carrera 4 models equipped with a standard, non-sport exhaust system. The exhaust tail pipe may fall off the rear muffler, causing a hazard to other vehicles and increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the rear muffler on affected vehicles to correct this concern.

For Models: Porsche 911

Suspension & Steering, December 3, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The bearings located in the rear wheel hubs may fail prematurely under certain driving conditions, even if proper maintenance procedures have been followed. If a rear wheel hub were to fail, the driver could lose control of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the rear wheel hubs to correct this concern. 

For Models: Porsche Cayenne Turbo, Porsche Panamera Turbo

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 911

Engine, March 20, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Interference between an engine coolant line and a fuel line may cause the fuel line to become disconnected, resulting in a fuel leak. This could lead to an engine misfire or stalling condition, increasing the risk of a crash. A fuel leak also increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the affected fuel line to correct this concern.

For Models: Porsche Cayenne, Porsche Cayenne S, Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid, Porsche Cayenne Turbo

Electrical & Lights, February 15, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

A headlamp assembly may become loose and/or detach from the fender. This could result in reduced visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the headlamp locking assemblies to correct this concern. The Porsche recall number is AC01.

For Models: Porsche 911 Turbo, Porsche Boxster, Porsche Boxster S, Porsche Cayman, Porsche Cayman S

Body, Interior & Misc., August 3, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

 

For Models: Porsche 911 Turbo

Suspension & Steering, June 9, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Some vehicles were equipped with center locking hub and wheel assemblies. Over time, the hubs can wear prematurely. As the hubs wear, the wheels could loosen, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the central locking wheels and hubs with an improved design. Porsche has not yet provided an owner notification schedule. The Porsche recall number is AB01.

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.

For Models: Porsche Boxster S

Body, Interior & Misc., April 30, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

On 2011 Boxsters with a convertible top, the locking hook at the front of the soft top should securely engage the top of the windshield frame when the soft top is closed. 9 Spyder models are being recalling because the soft top may not latch correctly to the windshield frame. As a result the soft top could open unexpectedly while driving at higher speeds, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace both the locking hook and lock catch with redesigned parts to correct this concern.
