If you are driving around in the 2017 Porsche 911 or 718 you could be putting your life at risk as Porsche has announced a recall of the models as they have been linked to possible increased risk of injury.
The models included are the 2017 911 Carrera Cabriolet, 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet, 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet, 911 Carrera S Cabriolet, 911 Targa S, 911 Targa 4S, 911 Turbo Cabriolet, 718 Boxter, and 718 Boxter S.
The issue is said to lie with the windshield not having been installed correctly during the manufacturing process. This means that it could detach if the vehicle was involved in an accident. At the moment a notification schedule hasn’t been provided but it is thought that Porsche will notify customers and offer a re-bonding of the windscreen free of charge.
It’s not just the 2017 Porsche 911 and 718 and others that are being recalled as Porsche issues a different recall for the 2015 to 2016 Macan S and Macan Turbo, these are said to have an issue with a defective front seat occupant detection sensor, which means the airbag may not deploy.
