Summary

Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (Porsche) is recalling certain 2003-2020 Porsche Macan, Cayenne, Panamera, and Cayman S vehicles. Please see the recall report for a complete list of all affected models and model years.

Chronology :

In May of 2022, Porsche’s production plant in Leipzig discovered missing sealing caps in vehicles for the Canadian market. Porsche immediately began investigating the scope of the affected vehicles, including past production records.

Porsche in parallel studied whether the missing sealing cap was necessary to prevent the potential for adjustment, and how the agency addressed questions concerning the sealing caps in past petitions. This work continued through August 2022.

On August 24, 2022, Porsche decided that the subject issue was a noncompliance with S10.18.9.2 of FMVSS No. 108.
