Porsche is recalling 111 of its 911 Carrera and Carrara 4 sports cars from the 2013 model year because the exhaust tailpipe can fracture and fall off the muffler.

While the issue doesn’t pose any risk to the driver apart from a possible change in the exhaust note, the debris could cause property damage or injure a bystander. Because of that, the maker is issuing a recall, although the campaign is only currently taking place in Canada.

Porsche will fix the issue at no charge to owners through its dealer network in Canada, although it’s likely the same issue will crop up in the U.S.

UPDATE: NHTSA has now officially announced the recall for the United States, where it affects 2,263 vehicles. Porsche will notify customers, and the defect will be repaired free of charge. For more info, owners may contact Porsche at 1-800-767-7243.
