Porsche Macan Recalled for Potential Fuel Leak

Porsche Macan Recall 600x367 at Porsche Macan Recalled for Potential Fuel Leak

Porsche is recalling 58,881 examples of the Macan S and Macan Turbo worldwide, including 1,198 in the UK, for a possible fuel leak from one of the low pressure lines. What like best about this is that Porsche calls it a mere “examination,” because, of course, recall sounds pretty bad.

Not that Porsche is a stranger with recalls. There is no doubt about the quality of their products, but every once in a while a major slip-up happens over there with terrible consequences. Remember all those 991 GT3s that went up in flames?

Hopefully the Macan problem is not that serious as no case of any incidents or fire have been reported so far as the result of the fuel line issue. Porsche says the issue has been rectified in ongoing production, and that current Macan owners will be contacted directly to bring their cars in for examination. They will change faulty fuel lines free of charge, but the work will take roughly one hour of your life that you won’t get back.

Only petrol engined Macans including the S and Turbo models – both powered by V6 units – are affected with this problem. The new Macan GTS is apparently safe, so you can go ahead and place an order for that one.
