Porsche is conducting an examination of 58,881 examples of the Macan S and Macan Turbo around the world, of which 1,198 are in Great Britain. The reason for this move is a possible leak in the low-pressure fuel line inside the engine compartment. The line will be replaced in the workshop – this is a purely precautionary measure.
Only gasoline engines are affected. The problem was identified after a precise examination of complaints and then immediately rectified in ongoing production. Owners of the vehicles will be contacted directly by their responsible Porsche dealers. Workshop appointments will be arranged as quickly as possible. The work will take roughly one hour and will be carried out free of charge.
Leaking low-pressure line – affected customers will be contacted directly says Porsche.
