Porsche Recalls 200,000 Cars

Author: |

More than 193,000 Porsche cars have had their headlights recalled due to a problem. A total of 193,259 vehicles, including Cayenne, Cayman S, Macan, and Panamera models from the 2003–2020 model years, are included in the recall. The horizontal headlight adjustment mechanism is not protected by a sealing covering, according to the German automaker. Although this isn't a serious problem, Porsche warns that it is possible for someone to unintentionally place the lower beam horizontal adjustment mechanism in the wrong position.

Other drivers may experience glare if the headlight is not properly adjusted. The problem also indicates that the FMVSS 108 requirements are not being met by the cars.

In May 2022, Porsche's Leipzig plant noticed that some vehicles built for the Canadian market were missing sealing caps. This discovery raised suspicions about a potential problem.


It then started looking at previous production data to investigate the range of affected vehicles. It also examined whether the sealing cap that was missing was required to keep the headlights from being changed.

The left and right headlights will simply be inspected at Porsche dealerships, and if no caps are present, they will be retrofitted. Owners will be told of the problem on October 29. Dealers were notified of the problem on September 14, 2022.
