Porsche Recall of Certain Model Year 2012 911 Carrera S Vehicles

Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—March 24, 2012.

Summary:   Porsche is recalling certain model year 2012 911 Carrera S vehicles manufactured from October 26, 2011, through January 24, 2012.  Interference between a coolant line and a fuel line may cause the fuel line to become disconnected at the quick connector.

Consequence:  If the fuel line becomes disconnected, a fuel leak may occur.  A fuel leak could lead to the engine misfiring or stalling, increasing the risk of a crash.  A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source could increase the risk of a fire.

Remedy:  Porsche will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel line with a new fuel line, free of charge.  The Safety Recall is expected to begin in April 2012.  Owners may contact Porsche at 800-767-7243.

Notes:  Porsche’s Safety Recall number is AC02.  Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 (TTY: 800-424-9153); or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
