This recall includes vehicles that were previously repaired in the spring.
Porsche will begin notifying owners on Dec. 15. 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, dealers will reprogram the instrument cluster.
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.
