Porsche has announced a recall on approximately 33,200 model-year 2010-16 Panamera hatchbacks due to issues with the air conditioner. Water may enter the air conditioner blower control unit, possibly causing an electrical short circuit, increasing the risk of a fire.

Porsche began notifying owners on June 23. Owners can call the automaker at 800-767-7243 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.

To fix the problem, dealers will add a relay harness to the air conditioner blower control unit and reseal it to prevent water from entering.

Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
