1995 993 valve guide issue REVISED

Engine

Vehicle Information: Year: 1995; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 37000;

I just became aware via Panorama of the valve guide issue. My car has 37000 miles on it and I did not suspect a problem...no smoke unless I haven't started it for several weeks..and then just a bit at initial idle. No excessive noise yet. Can I expect 50-60 K before I have to have them replaced? If they fail sooner than that...any idea why Porsche has stepped up to this as a recall? Bad valve guides is an ancient affliction...my 1963 Austin Healey had them...you would think Porsche would have figured them out by now?City: TucsonState: AZBody Type: CabrioletCar Prep: StockTotal Mileage: 37000Car Use: Street use only
