BEIJING: A unit of Porsche Automobil Holding SE will recall 57,200 imported Cayenne and Panamera cars due to faulty transmission components, while a unit of Ferrari NV will recall 200 vehicles due to faulty airbags.
The Porsche recall will start from Aug 26, China’s State Administration for Market Regulation said in a statement last Friday. Ferrari’s will start Oct 10, the regulator said in a separate statement.
“Insufficiently durable” components in the Porsche cars may prevent drivers from selecting the correct gear and, under extreme circumstances, lead to unintended movement, according to the statement.
The possibility of personnel injury or collision can’t be ruled out, it said.
Porsche’s recall includes 45,685 Panamera models manufactured between Aug 21, 2009, and Sept 13, 2016, and 11,515 Cayenne models made between July 7, 2008 and Feb. 5, 2010.
The companies will replace the faulty components free of charge. — Bloomberg
