Porsche, though the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, announced a voluntary recall on about 2,200 911 Carrera and Carrera 4 models built during the 2012 and 2013 model years. On cars equipped with the standard exhaust system it was found that the tailpipes could separate from the mufflers and become dangerous road debris; models that added the optional sport exhaust system are not included in this recall.
Porsche is issuing a recall of 20,278 Cayenne SUVs from the 2011- and 2012 model years including the base model as well as the S, Hybrid and Turbo. The vehicles in question, produced from March 8, 2010 up to January of this year, may have been fitted with faulty headlight locking assemblies. In case of assembly failure, the headlights could detach from the fenders – something that might be dramatically inconvenient if you're driving at night on a dark, winding road, say.
Porsche has found faults in a few switches controlling the traction control and electronic suspension adjustment systems in 128 of their 911 GT3 and 911 GT3 RS vehicles. The faulty switches can lead to the loss of traction control and the inability of the suspension to adjust with speed or mode selection. Models produced in 2007 between the dates of September 28th and November 9th are being recalled in order to implement the necessary repairs.
