Ski Bag Detaches During A Crash

Recall Details

The optional ski bag for the vehicle may have stitching that is not secure, causing it to possibly detach from the vehicle in an accident. Dealers will replace the ski bag free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

For vehicles equipped with the optional ski bag, the fastening strap may not be secure to the bag, resulting in it tearing and detaching from the vehicle. If this happens during a crash, it would increase the risk of 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 beginning in January, 2019. 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 AJ12.
