Macan S, Turbo recalled for faulty fuel line, no accidents or injuries reported

Friday, October 30, 2015

Porsche is recalling 25,325 Macan S and Turbo models in North America due what the automaker describes is "a possible leak in the low-pressure fuel line inside the engine compartment." Porsche states the safety recall is voluntary and there have been no reports of accidents or injuries related to the suspect fuel line.

While the North American recall covers 3,490 Macans in Canada and 21,835 in the US, 58,881 are affected worldwide.

Owners of vehicles with the faulty part will be contacted directly by Porsche about the recall, which entails one hour of labor at a dealership where the fuel line will be replaced free of charge.

Porsche says the recall stemmed from an investigation into complaints, and that the production line has been updated with the new fuel line.
