Porsche is recalling approximately 11,827 model-year 2020-21 Taycan EVs due to software issues with the hazard lights. The pre-collision automatic hazard lights may activate in non-emergency situations, possibly confusing other drivers and increasing the risk of a crash.
Porsche will begin notifying owners on Dec. 13. 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 hazard light software.
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.
