Porsche 911 Turbo QuestionsNew Turbo S. Rush of air inside cab with acceleration, seems loss of power??? (1 answer)
Have 1200 miles on car. Problem started about 300 miles. Hear loud rush of air with acceleration, then deceleration. No warning lights on. Seems like I'm losing turbo boost. Car is definitely slower than my last Carrera S. Dealer says nothing wrong. Any ideas???
Porsche 911 Turbo RecallsThe Seat Belt Anchors May Not Rotate as They Should
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.
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.
The center wheel lock and hub assemblies in special aftermarket wheel mounting kits may fail, causing wheels to separate from the vehicle. Dealers will replace the center bolts on affected vehicles free of charge to resolve the concern.
