Atlanta, Ga.—June 20, 2017—Seven models of Porsche vehicles are part of the manufacturer’s recent recalls. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said that nearly 18,000 potentially affected units are part of this action.
The risk comes from loose camshaft controllers in these affected vehicles. According to the recall acknowledgment statement, a dislodged camshaft could cause one of the vehicles’ engines to stall, posing a possible safety hazard. Of the seven models, five are for the Panamera brand and two are for Cayenne. The combined model years stretch from 2010 to 2012.
As of June 13, there was no official notification schedule listed for this recall. However, the statement did say that dealers will address the problem by replacing the screws for the camshafts.
