Recall 17V135000

Windshield Separates From Vehicle In An Accident

Recall Details

The windshield may separate from the body of the vehicle in an accident because it is not bonded properly to the body. Dealers will re-bond the windshield free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The windshield of the vehicle may not be properly bonded, allowing it to detach from the body in a crash. This would increase risk of occupant injury.

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. The Porsche recall number is AH04.
