RepairPal Expert Overview
The sensor that detects an occupant sitting in the passenger front seat may fail. As a result, the passenger frontal air bag may fail to deploy in an accident, increasing risk of occupant injury.
Recall repairs on your Porsche must be performed by a Porsche dealership. Porsche will notify known owners of affected vehicles (a timetable of this notification is unavailable as of the time of this writing). If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Porsche dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with. The Porsche recall number is AH02.
The occupant detection sensor in the passenger seat may fail. The passenger frontal air bag will not deploy in an accident as a result. Dealers will replace the occupant detection sensor mat and seat cushion in the passenger seat free of charge to resolve the concern.
