Porsche Recalls Panamera for Rollbar Issue

Porsche Cars North America, Inc. is issuing a voluntary recall and stop sale until further notice for select 2017 and 2018 model year Panamera models in the United States and Puerto Rico.

Internal testing showed that there is a possibility that connecting links for the rear-axle anti-roll bar were installed that do not meet Porsche quality standards. A connecting link may become detached from the anti-roll bar. If this occurs, it cannot be ruled out that the detached parts of the anti-roll bar can come into contact with and damage surrounding suspension parts.

Authorized Porsche dealers will replace the connecting links for the anti-roll bar on the rear axle. Customers will be notified about the recall by mail. There are 715 affected vehicles in the United States and Puerto Rico. No incidents or accidents have been reported.
