Porsche Australia has recalled the Cayenne large SUV for the second time in a week, with a leak risk once again behind the move.
However, unlike the last recall, this one involves the Cayenne wagon and coupe’s unnamed entry-level variants and a potential issue with the transmission oil pipe, which may have a compromised welded joint via the part supplier’s production line.
Sold between September 19 and December 3, 2019, 189 examples of the 2020 model (MY20) may therefore be subject to transmission fluid leaks.
If a fluid leak were to occur while the vehicle is being driven, it could possibly cause an accident and therefore increase the chance of injury to vehicle occupants and/or other road users.
Impacted owners will be contacted by Porsche Australia via mail with instructions to book their vehicle in a preferred dealership for a free-of-charge repair.
That said, service technicians won’t be able to complete the work until replacement parts become available next month.
In the meantime, if affected owners notice their vehicle leaking, Porsche Australia says they should park it safely and immediately contact a preferred dealership.
Those looking for more information can visit Porsche Australia’s website or contact a preferred dealership during business hours.
A full list of involved Vehicle Identification Numbers (VINs) can be found at the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission’s ACCC Product Safety Australia website.
