Porsche Taycan Recall 2021 Over Faulty Suspensions – 396 Car Units To Be Recalled By Porsche

Porsche Taycan Recall 2021

Luxury automobile manufacturer, Porsche, will recall car units due to an alleged suspension failure.

The particular unit to be recalled is their newly released electric car line called Taycan.

All of the 2021 Taycan models will be recalled due to an issue with the suspension unit.

It was reported that the suspension component is loose, causing it to detach accidentally, which can increase the likelihood of a car crash.

On March 10, 2021, the National Highway Traffic System Administration (NHTSA) issued the recall on Porsche’s 2021 Taycan cars.

It was reported that around 396 units of the 2021 Taycan model would be recalled.

Aside from this model, other units are also being recalled, including 911, Boxster, 718 Spyder, and Cayman units.

Suspension Issue

On February 9, 2021, Porsche was notified of their cars’ possible suspension issue by the NHTSA Safety Recall Report. 

The organization found out that some of the screw connections in the Taycan’s suspension component are loose.

They alleged that the screws were not tightened enough and that the loose screws may cause the whole suspension unit to detach.

After two weeks, the Porsche product safety committee conducted tests to check the effect of the loose screws. 

The worst-case tests show that a car with issues in the screw connection failed to pass its safety standards after at least 20,000 km of mileage.

The company recognized the potentially dangerous side effect of the loose screws and issued a recall of their car units shortly after the testing.

The following car models are included in the recall:

  • 2021 Taycan (including Turbo and Turbo S models)
  • 2021 911 Carrera (including S, 4S, Turbo, and Turbo S models)
  • 2021 911 Carrera convertible (including S, 4S, Turbos, and Turbo S models)
  • 2021 4S Targa (including base and Heritage Design model)
  • 2021 Cayman (including T, S, and GT4 models)
  • 2021 718 Spyder
  • 2021 Boxster

Car Recall Process

According to Porsche, car owners will have no indication that their units are affected.

However, they may hear some noises when driving the car because the loose suspension may move around.

Porsche stated that they would inform affected car owners and dealers by May 9, 2021. 

Affected car owners will need to bring the vehicle to the dealers where they purchased the car.

The dealers will be responsible for repairing the vehicle, including replacing the loose components and tightening them accordingly.

The automobile manufacturer stated that they would shoulder the expense of replacing all damaged parts.

Customers are advised to call Porsche’s customer service hotline for any questions regarding the recall.

They may contact them at 1-800-767-7243. During the inquiry, customers are advised to state the recall number AMA3.

Related Cases

No class action lawsuit has been charged against Porsche for the suspension issue in their car.

However, a class action lawsuit has been filed against the company in February 2021 due to allegations that a failed system update has caused permanent damage to the whole “infotainment” system.

In January 2021, a separate class action lawsuit was also charged against Porsche for allegedly deceiving their customer about their car units’ fuel efficiency.

The company was also charged with a different class action lawsuit in 2020 due to the alleged defective cooling system in their car units.
