In an effort to address a quality issue with hood-latches, Porsche is conducting a voluntary recall of 1,382 Boxster, Cayman and 911 models sold in the US.
Installed on 2014 and 2015 model-year vehicles, the faulty latch passes all mandated strength requirements, but according to Porsche “these parts may not meet Porsche-specific quality standards throughout the life cycle of the vehicle.” The company also added that no incidents, accidents or injuries as a result of the issue have been reported.
The issue was discovered during routine in-house quality checks and was immediately corrected in production, meaning new models won’t have the same issues. Current owners will be notified within 60 days and the repair is said to take approximately 30 minutes. Globally, the issue has affected just under 5,000 units.
