You don’t see Porsche in this section often, but when you plunk down nearly $50,000 for a luxury SUV — and the headlights fall out, that presents a problem.
That’s the problem that led to the recall by Porsche of 20,000 Cayenne SUVs. The recall covers 2011 and 2012 models, including the S, S hybrid and turbo models. Consumer Reports notes that in the filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the problem centers on “headlamps that can become loose and detach, possibly reducing driver visibilities and increase the risk of a crash.”
Porsche will notify Cayenne owners by mail to bring in their vehicles and they also can call the company’s toll-free customer support line, 800-767-7243, for more information.
