February 2012 Vehicle Recalls
February 27, 2012 by staff
February 2012 Vehicle Recalls, 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 is sending notices to owners and dealers will fix the issue free of charge. There’s an official press notice from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration after the jump with a little more info.
