Recall 16V680000

Vehicle Oversteers And Loses Control

Recall Details

The vehicle may over-steer due to anti-roll bar connecting links moving out of position. Dealers will inspect and replace the front anti-roll bar links as needed free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The suspension of the vehicle may allow for over-steering during certain driving conditions, resulting in a loss of vehicle control. This could result in an accident.

What Should You Do?

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.
