Porsche Cars North America, Inc., (PCNA) issues a 2017-2019 Porsche 718 voluntary recall for the United States and Puerto Rico. 14,388 vehicles in all 50 States and Puerto Rico are subject to this recall.
The 2017-2019 Porsche 718 voluntary recall involves a potential detrimental outcome of a particular frontal crash test. This entails requirements of UN Regulation R-94 regarding fulfillment of, or possible lack thereof, occupant protection.
Porsche Internal Quality Control independently detected this potential inconsistency. Porsche’s IQC analyses determined that the lower longitudinal crash beam component could penetrate the bulkhead wall. This in turn might trigger a fuel leakage.
Fortunately, though, no reports of accidents or injuries have been recorded resulting from this voluntarily announced recall issue.
PCNA is about to notify owners by mail of the affected 2017-through-2019-model-year vehicles about this recall. PCNA will urge such owners to bring their Porsche 718 Boxster and Cayman automobiles to an authorized Porsche dealer.
Once the affected vehicles arrive at the dealerships, each service department will fasten the lower longitudinal crash beam member components with additional rivets. This precautionary reinforcement will further guard against bulkhead penetration.
Each remedial visit and repair should take approximately an hour and a half. Of course, the repair is free of charge.
