Second-Gen Porsche Panamera Hit By New Recall

The Porsche Panamera is being called back in again, this time to address an issue with its electric power steering.

According to the German automaker, the new recall campaign affects 74,585 units of the car worldwide, which were assembled between March 21, 2016 and December 6, 2018. The problem is that these vehicles may lose their electric power steering function for short periods of time, meaning that drivers would have to apply more force to turn the wheel, thus increasing the risk of a crash/injury.

Responsible for the electric power steering glitch is a software error, blamed on the control unit. Technicians will fix the problem by updating it in all affected cars. The work, which is expected to take approximately one hour for each vehicle, will be carried out free of charge.

Porsche says owners of these Panameras will be contacted in writing and asked to schedule an appointment with an authorized dealer as soon as possible.

In the meantime, Porsche is also conducting a different safety campaign, this time in the United States. The action covers 112 units of the Panamera hybrid models, whose front brake lines could corrode over time, thus affecting the stopping performance.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that the recall will commence on January 27, and will see dealers replace the faulty parts with new ones, at no cost to owners.
