Porsche Recalls Nearly All 2003-06 Cayennes In America Over Fuel Leak
The recall, announced by the manufacturer, affects an estimated 50,145 vehicles in the United States from the 2003 to 2006 model years.
Given that Porsche sold a total of 55,210 examples of the Cayenne in the United States in those four years, the campaign would ostensibly affect nearly all the vehicles sold during that period.
The problem comes down to the fuel pump filter flange, which could develop hairline cracks “after extended usage and time.” As a result, “a very small quantity of fuel might seep out causing a fuel odor.” There’s no mention, however, of any risk of a fire igniting, as is typically the danger with fuel leaks…
Porsche Panamera, Cayenne Recalled for Possible Engine Stalling
Affected vehicles include 2010-2012 Porsche Panamera S, Panamera 4S, and Panamera Turbo models, along with 2011-2012 Panamera and Panamera 4 units. Affected Porsche Cayenne vehicles are from the 2011 model year and include the Cayenne S and Cayenne Turbo models. According to the recall notice, affected vehicles have camshaft controllers that may come loose inside the engine possibly resulting in an engine stall that could increase the risk of a crash…
Volkswagen Recalls Almost 300,000 Cars Due To Potentially Hazardous Faulty Fuel Pump
Volkswagen is in deep trouble once more after it was forced to recall almost 300,000 cars in the United States. The latest recall follows the one from 2016 in which more than 280,000 Volkswagen cars had to be dealt with accordingly due to faulty fuel pumps. This time, the troubled car manufacturer is recalling Audis and Porsches.
According to The Drive, Volkswagen is recalling an estimated 292,000 cars including 240,500 Audis and around 51,500 Porsches, also due to potentially hazardous fuel pump issues. The vehicles involved in the new recall are Audi Q5 made from July 2012 to March 2017 as well as Q7 manufactured from May 2012 to July 2015. Porsche Macan S and Macan Turbo cars made between 2015 and 2017 along with the 2017 Macan are also involved. Porsche GTS models from 2017 were also fitted with the defective fuel pumps and had to be recalled.
Once a recalled vehicle is taken back to dealers, it will undergo repairs in which a film will be applied to the flanges. The said film will prevent fuel from spilling out of the pumps. Those that already exhibit cracking will be replaced completely…
Porsche and Audi Recalls: Growing Concern Over Gas Leaks
A concern over gas leaks has prompted the recall of 241,000 Audi and 51,000 Porsche models in the United States, according to reports posted Friday on the website of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The Audi action is an expansion of a recall last October of 143,000 models for the same problem.
The automaker said it concluded the new recall was necessary as the result of “an ongoing analysis.”
The problem with the Audi and Porsche models is that the fuel pump flange may develop small cracks, the automaker said in its report to federal regulators…
Sniff, sniff: Porsche recalls 52,000 Macan crossovers for fuel odors
It doesn’t matter if you have an expensive car or an inexpensive one — nobody likes the smell of gasoline in or around a car. That’s why Porsche recalled some of its crossovers.
Porsche issued a voluntary recall for 51,497 examples of the Macan in the US. This includes the base, S, GTS and Turbo trims. The affected vehicles carry build dates between March 4, 2014, and April 14, 2017. According to Good Car Bad Car, Porsche sold 47,143 Macans in the US, so this might affect nearly every Macan on the road…
2015-2016 Porsche Macan S and Macan Turbo, 2017 Macan GTS: Recall Alert
Vehicles Affected: Approximately 18,000 model-year 2015-16 Porsche Macan S and Macan Turbo SUVs, and model-year 2017 Macan GTS SUVs
The Problem: The passenger occupant detection sensor mat may fail in the front passenger seat, deactivating the front passenger airbag. If the airbag does not deploy as intended in a crash, the front passenger has an increased risk of an injury.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the sensor mat and seat cushion for free.
