Porsche’s recall of the Panamera encompasses every sold model in the world
Porsche’s recall of the Panamera, which we reported a few days ago, may be bigger than the company initially let on. As it turns out, it’s not just the 3,176 Panameras - the number Porsche first gave - that needs to be recalled because of problems with the seatbelt, but actually each and every Panamera that has been sold since it was released. That’s right; all of it from whichever part of the world it was sold in needs to be recalled. In total, that’s 11,324 cars.
While no accidents have been reported from this problem, which could happen due to the possibility of the front seat belt’s mounts failing to lock when the front seats are adjusted in an extreme forward position, Porsche is nevertheless taking a steadfast approach in fixing the problem before it gets even bigger.
While it’s not the kind of start Porsche was looking for in the Panamera when it was released late last year, the early recall should quell whatever publicity smackdown the Panamera would have faced if they had done the recall at a later date a-la-Toyota.
