Among the 95 recalls the NHTSA has announced this March comes news of the following:

Logo - PorschePorsche Cars North America, Inc. (“Porsche”) has recalled an estimated 14,110 model year 2018 Panamera 4 Executive, Panamera 4S Sport Turismo, Panamera 4 Hybrid, Panamera 4 Hybrid Executive, Panamera 4 Hybrid Sport Turismo, Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo, Panamera Turbo S Hybrid Executive, Panamera Turbo S Hybrid, Panamera 4 Sport Turismo and Panamera Turbo S Hybrid Sport Turismo vehicles, 2017-2018 Panamera, Panamera 4, Panamera Turbo Executive, Panamera 4S, Panamera Turbo and Panamera 4S Executive vehicles and 2019 Cayenne S and Cayenne vehicles.

The instrument cluster in the recalled Porsche vehicles may not provide a visual warning when the brake pads are worn out. As a result, these vehicles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 135, “Light vehicle brake systems.”

According to the NHTSA, if the driver is not alerted when brake pads are worn out, the driver may lose control of the vehicle while attempting to brake, increasing the risk of crash.

Porsche will notify registered owners, and dealers will update the instrument cluster software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 21, 2019. Owners may contact Porsche customer service at 1-800-767-7243. Porsche’s designation for this recall is AKA1/AKA0.
