Click above for a high-resolution gallery of the 2008 Porsche Cayenne.

The Cayenne, Porsche's ultimate sport-ute, is the subject of a new recall to fix a fuel line problem. While the V8 models (including the new GTS) are unaffected, about 5,900 V6 models need to visit the Porsche doctor (a.k.a. any dealer) for repair. The recall centers on a fuel line that may be abraded by engine cladding through normal driving. Initially, a knocking sound is heard that can eventually lead to marking on the fuel line. Dealers will simply reroute the fuel line to solve the problem. No fuss, no muss.

A total of 5,573 Cayennes sold in the United States and 392 sold in Canada are covered by the recall and all are 2008 models.

      I think it is a great sign by Porsche and their commitment to quality to perform a global recall on almost 19,000 cars/suvs with only "5 known complaints worldwide".

      So much for superior sour kraut technology.

        Yeah? I'm guessing from your username and comment that you're French or at least a francophile... and you want to talk about reliability and quality issues with a German vehicle? Don't even open the floodgate.
