Approximately 70,000 model-year 2015-18 Porsche Macan SUVs are being recalled due to a fire risk. The fuel pump service cover may contact the flow nozzle on the filter flange of the fuel pump, potentially causing cracks and a fuel leak, increasing the risk of a fire.
Porsche will begin notifying owners on April 10. 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 remedy the issue, Porsche will rework or replace and apply a protective film to the fuel pump flange. The fuel pump flange will be replaced if cracks are present.
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.
