Porsche is recalling 24,467 model-year 2017-2021 Panamera, Panamera 4, Panamera GTS and Panamera Turbo vehicles due to a faulty coolant pump. Moisture may enter the external coolant pump for the climate control system and cause an electrical short circuit. An electrical short circuit increases the risk of a vehicle fire.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on March 27, 2023. Owners may contact Porsche customer service at 800-767-7243 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will replace the coolant pump and inspect and replace the plug-in connection, if necessary.
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.
