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.

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.
