2017 Porsche Macan Recalled Over Sudden Oversteer Issue

Owners of certain units of the 2017 Porsche Macan should be aware that the automaker has issued a recall over a safety concern.

The safety campaign counts 243 units of the 2017MY SUVs and includes the Macan, made from July 30 to August 9, 2016, the Macan S, produced between July 30 and August 5, the Macan GTS, made from August 1 and August 5, and the Macan Turbo, assembled from August 3 to August 5.

“There is the possibility the front anti-roll bar of the affected vehicles were fitted with connecting links from a defective batch, on which the connecting link bushings can move out of the connecting link eyes”, the NHTSA notes in the description of the defect. This can cause rattling noises and make the anti-roll bar to stop working during extreme maneuvers and, in extreme cases, the vehicles can oversteer, increasing the risk of a crash.

Discovered in August, the condition has been blamed on the component manufacturer, Germany’s Vorwerk Drivetec GmbH, and after certain in-house testing, the recall campaign was decided upon in mid-September.

Porsche will now notify owners of the condition, while dealers will inspect and replace the front anti-rollbar links, free of charge, if necessary. An exact notification schedule hasn’t been provided yet, but concerned owners can contact the automaker at 1-800-767-7243 (recall number AG06), or the NHTSA’s Vehicle Safety Hotline, at 1-888-327-4236.
