Check if your Porsche has a Recall

 


Chronology :

In the beginning of October, 2023, Porsche was informed about an improper re-coding of the rear vehicle electronics control unit in the rework area. As a result, the subject vehicles were produced with an out of specification position of the rear spoiler.

Subsequently, the number of affected cars and markets had to be identified.

A field analysis did not reveal any known cases of either tire damage, accidents or any other complaint in this context.

During October and November of 2023, possible effects on driving behavior and the visibility of the high-mounted
stop lamp had to be analyzed.

On November 29, 2023 out of abundance of caution, a determination of defect was made in Porsche’s Product Safety Committee.
