Porsche Recall…..What Will Reconditioned/Gray Porsche Owners Do?
With even the best car manufacturers having to do recalls, it is interesting to see what buyers/owners of reconditioned/gray/parallel imported luxury cars are going to do when their luxury cars are recalled. Porsche has just recalled almost 102,000 units of its very popular Cayenne SUV globally to repair a possible defect that may lead to a headlight getting loose or falling off. If you bought your new Cayenne from Sime Darby Auto Performance, then you have nothing to worry, otherwise……get some sticky tape and drive slowly over bumps and ruts.
Porsche AG spokesman Steve Janisse said that the vehicles were produced for the model years 2011 and 2012 and were built between March 2010 and January 2012. A twist lock secures the headlights on these models. A headlight may fall if this lock isn’t secure, specifically when a driver is accelerating very quickly or braking heavily when rounding a corner. Throughout the world, there were 39 reports of a headlight coming loose and 68 cases of it getting detached.
