Porsche is recalling Macan compact utility vehicles as a pre-emptive measure to examine potential problems with fuel lines under the hood.
The recall affects 58,881 Macan S and Macan Turbo models around the world. The problem was identified after complaints about a potential gasoline leak and was immediately corrected in the affected vehicles by replacing the low-pressure fuel line in the engine compartment. About half the vehicles covered by the recall are in North America (3,490 in Canada; 21,835 in the U.S.).
Due to extreme heat around the engine, a fuel leak could prove dangerous were the fuel to ignite, so the company is bringing all gasoline models back to dealerships to replace the fuel lines as a precautionary measure. The change has already been made on the production line.
Porsche will contact owners directly to schedule the repairs it estimates will take an hour.
