Porsche Recalls Panamera, Taycan Vehicles for Suspension Problem
Some Porsche owners in California and beyond may want to check if their cars have been recalled before hitting the road.
Porsche is calling back more than 500 vehicles that may be riding on broken suspension arms, the company recently told federal regulators. It says the defect could cause drivers to lose control of the cars, potentially causing accidents.
“A loose threaded connection might cause movement of” the “suspension component beyond its intended position,” Porsche said in a defect notice filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. “If the screw connection fails it might cause a sudden driving instability with significant changes of the driving behavior and the potential loss of control.”
The recall covers Taycan, Panamera, Panamera Turbo S, Panamera GTS, Panamera 4, Panamera 4 Sport Turismo, Panamera 4 Executive, Panamera 4S Executive, Panamera 4S, Panamera 4S E-Hybrid, and Panamera 4 E-Hybrid models, all from the 2021 model year, Car Scoops reports.
Porsche told NHTSA that drivers may get little or no warning that suspension arms are broken.
“A warning is not ensured,” Porsche said in the defect notice. “Abnormal noises might be perceivable, due to the movement of respective components.”
Know Your California Lemon Law Rights
Porsche has one of the best records on the market when it comes to car recalls, but that is nothing to write home about. The company still recalls about 531 cars for every 1,000 sold.
The truth is that auto manufacturers recall millions of vehicles every year over a broad array of defects that increase the risk of a crash and make it more likely for people to be injured when accidents happen.
Fortunately, Porsche and other car owners and lessors in California have some valuable rights and protections under the state’s lemon law.
The Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act requires auto manufacturers to perform various repairs on cars while they are under warranty. The law also forces the companies to buy back - or, in some cases, replace - covered vehicles that they are unable or unwilling to fix.
