VW Group-owned Porsche is playing it safe with a possible fuel leak on certain gasoline-powered Macan models, issuing what it calls a “precautionary recall”.
The action affects 58,881 Macan S and Macan Turbo vehicles around the world, the bulk of which are in the United States at 21,835 units, with 3,490 cars located in Canada and 3,490 in Germany.
“The reason for this move is a possible leak in the low-pressure fuel line inside the engine compartment. The line will be replaced in the workshop. This is a purely precautionary measure,” Porsche said in a statement.
“Affected are only gasoline engines. The problem was identified after a precise examination of complaints and then immediately rectified in ongoing production,” the German carmaker added.
If you own one of the affected Macans, your local Porsche dealer will come in contact with you to set an appointment. According to the manufacturer, the work to fix the fuel line will “take roughly one hour and will be carried out free of charge”.
