If you – or someone you know – drives a Porsche Panamera, stop and read this now.
The automaker is recalling Porsche Panamera models produced between March 21, 2016 and December 6, 2018 due to a problem affecting the cars’ electric power steering.
In a December 20, 2018 notice, Porsche said a “software error” means the electric power steering “will occasionally be unavailable for a limited period”.
“If this happens, increased force is then required for steering,” Porsche said.
As a precaution, the associated control unit will be re-programmed with an “updated data record”, Porsche said.
The procedure will take an hour and is free.
All 74,585 affected customers worldwide are being contacted in writing to send their cars back to their Porsche Centre as soon as possible.
