Update: Porsche Macan Recalled for Airbag Defect
Porsche is recalling the following Macan sports cars which were manufactured with a front passenger seat occupancy sensor mat that may degrade and fail to detect a passenger in the front seat:
- 2017-2018 Porsche Macan
- 2017-2018 Porsche Macan Turbo Kits
- 2017-2018 Porsche Macan GTS
- 2015-2018 Porsche Macan S
- 2015-2018 Porsche Macan Turbo
"The air bag will not deploy during a crash if a front passenger is undetected, increasing the risk of injury," NHTSA said.
This recall began on April 30, 2021.
What's the Problem?
This recall affects Porsche Macan cars from model years 2015 through 2018, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The fuel pump service cover on affected vehicles may contact the flow nozzle on the filter flange of the fuel pump, potentially causing cracks and a fuel leak, NHTSA said. Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source may increase the risk of a fire.
Porsche is notifying owners and dealers will rework or replace and apply a protective film to the fuel pump flange. This recall began on April 10, 2020.
