NHTSA Announces Recall on 2010 Porsche Panamera

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

••• Porsche is recalling models of its new Panamera four-door sports car due to an issue that can cause the front seat belts to not work, according to a notice by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The recall affects 3,176 Panamera S, 4S and Turbo sedans, all from model-year 2010.

According to NHTSA, “If the front seats are adjusted towards an extreme position, resulting in unfavorable tolerance of the mating components, it is possible that the function of the locking mechanism of the seat belt mount can no longer be guaranteed. The seat belt mount could detach from the anchoring system when the seat belt is fastened or opened.”

In the event of a crash, the seat belts “may not provide adequate protection for the seat occupant,” the notice said.


To remedy the situation, Porsche dealers will for free install an additional locking device in both front seats. Porsche has not said when owners would start to receive notice with further instructions, but if you own one of these cars and are concerned, you can call the German automaker’s hot line at 800-545-8039.
