The State Administration for Market Regulation said in a statement on Friday that Porsche (China) Motors Ltd. has recalled 94 2018-2021 imported Cayenne cars, made from December 5, 2017 to February 10, 2021, as is required by relevant regulations regarding the management of defective cars.
Due to the production deviation of vehicles within the scope of this recall, the assembly personnel did not strictly follow the operation process, and the connecting bolts between the steering column and the steering gear may not be fastened according to the correct torque for vehicles produced within a specific period. As a result, these bolts may loosen during driving, potentially causing the vehicle’s handling performance to be restricted or lost.
Porsche’s China division will inspect the recalled vehicles free of charge, change the fixed bolt of the steering column and tighten it according to the prescribed torque, thereby eliminating any safety hazards.
The company also proposed some measures for emergency handling. If drivers notice any abnormal noises while driving, or a gap at the steering column while turning, they should stop driving and contact the nearest Porsche center for recall and repair.
