Porsche recalls Panamera and Taycan due to suspension problems

   A total of 565 Porsche Panamera versions and Taycans are recalled in the US due to a problem with the suspension system.
The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has asked Porsche to issue a recall campaign for two of its sedans, including the Panamera and the all-electric Taycan.Specifically, the German automaker said that a total of 565 vehicles of all types are included in this recall. The model range spans various trim levels including Taycan, Panamera, Panamera Turbo S, Panamera GTS, Panamera 4, Panamera 4 Sport Turismo, Panamera 4 Executive, Panamera 4S Executive, Panamera 4S, Panamera 4S E-Hybrid and Panamera 4 E-Hybrid. All of these cars are facelift versions of 2021 of this model.
   The NHTSA report found that the lower swingarm on the front wheel of the suspension could be broken and damaged. The agency also alerted Porsche to the problem in mid-March, when three cars had broken suspension arms.
After investigation, Porsche discovered that the reason lies in the supplier's swingarm manufacturing process. Accordingly, these swingarms may not be molded to the specifications required by the manufacturer. Therefore, if the rear arm is broken, the driver can lose control.
   Porsche adds that the swingarm can break without warning. What customers feel is just a "crack" sound when something goes wrong. Other possible phenomena such as loud grinding noises and rattling noises. At this point, the steering wheel can be deflected up to 45 degrees during braking.
   To fix the problem, dealers will replace the lower front swingarms with new ones manufactured to specification. Porsche will notify owners of affected vehicles by July 16 and make repairs free of charge.
   Porsche Vietnam has not made any announcement regarding this, whether domestic cars are affected or not. Currently, the number of Panamera 2021 and Taycan in our country is not much, only a few dozen cars.
