We recently heard that Porsche would be recalling some of their Diesel powered Macan and Cayenne models in Europe. Now Porsche has released more information about the Diesel Cayenne recall for cars with their 3.0 litre V6 engine.
Porsche will be contacting customers who are affected by this recall and will providing a software update to these vehicles as part of the recall.
At the end of July last year, in Germany Porsche recalled the type Cayenne 3.0 litre V6 diesel vehicle of the Euro 6 emission class. The background to this was that Porsche discovered irregularities in the engine control software, in the course of internal investigations, and proactively communicated this to the German Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA). The authority has ordered an adjustment by means of a software update within the scope of a recall. In the middle of October 2017 the KBA has given its approval for the software update for vehicles of the type Cayenne 3.0 litre V6 diesel vehicle of the Euro 6 emission class submitted by Porsche for review. Since that Porsche is bringing all affected vehicles in to garages to perform the software update, which is free of charge. In more specific terms, customers have been informed already by their Porsche dealer, and requested to co-operate with the plans by agreeing to an appointment at a garage. The software update will then take approximately one hour to complete there. Where required, the Porsche centre will be happy to provide an appropriate form of transport as a replacement while the required work is being carried out.
