Porsche recalls SUVs with defective fuel pumps [Video]

Hello, and welcome to another vehicle recall update.

Porsche Cars North America has recalled more than fifty thousand vehicles believed to be equipped with cracked fuel pump filter flanges. The campaign affects 2003 to 2006 Porsche Cayenne sport utility vehicles.

Affected vehicles are likely to contain flanges with hairline fractures that may release small amounts of fuel and therefore increase the risk of engine fires. This poses a serious risk to owners.

Porsche has directed dealers to replace the cracked flanges free of charge, a process that should take roughly one-and-a-half hours. The car company has not yet released a timetable for owner notification.

Stay tuned for more vehicle recall breaking news.
