Porsche Cars North America Statement Regarding Macan Recall

5 05 2017

ATLANTA, GA – May 5, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Porsche Cars North America, Inc. is issuing a voluntary recall on 51,497 Macan, Macan S, Macan GTS, and Macan Turbo models in the U.S. manufactured between March 4, 2014, and April 14, 2017.

Porsche determined that fine hairline cracks could appear, after an extended period of use, on the filter flange of the fuel pump on the affected vehicles. As a result, if this happens, a very small quantity of fuel might seep out causing a fuel odor. No incidents have been reported in actual usage in the field. Porsche dealers will inspect vehicles, and seal or replace the flange as necessary.
