Recall 12V107000

Potential Fuel Leak

Recall Details

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.

Our Quick Take

One of the engine fuel lines may become disconnected, resulting in a fuel leak, engine misfires, engine stalling, and an increased risk of a fire.

What Should You Do?

Porsche will notify owners of the affected vehicles beginning in April of 2012. If you notice engine performance issues and/or an abnormal fuel please don't drive your vehicle, and contact your Porsche dealer. The Porsche recall number is AC02.
