Porsche Cayenne Turbo Recalls
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.
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.
The mechanism in the seat belts that locks a child safety seat into place may not operate properly. Dealers will permanently install a clip in either of the affected rear outboard seat belts and provide an owner's manual insert free of charge to resolve the concern.

It's going in to the local Porsche dealer tomorrow to resolve the front turn light problem (not the bulb). Compared the 2004 styling to the new turbo and like the 04 styling better.

Amazing machine. I wanted a 4 dr sports car that could carry more than 2 pp, totally reliable, quick and responsive, and safe. If this car could get 50 mpg, it could possibly be the best all around car in the Universe.
