Porsche Cars Australia has recalled the Cayenne and Cayenne Coupe to fix a problem with the rear trailing arm.

    “The clamping nuts on the rear-axle trailing arm may break over the service life of the vehicle, as they may not have been manufactured within specification,” Porsche says in its recall notice.

    “A broken clamping nut can result in increased movement between the trailing arm and wheel carrier.

    “As a result, vehicle handling may be diminished. This increases the risk of serious injury or death to vehicle occupants and/or other road users, and damage to property.”

    • A total of 92 cars are included in the recall
    • Affected cars were sold between September 16 and October 31, 2020
    • A VIN list of affected vehicles is attached here

    Porsche will contact owners and advise them to arrange a free fix when parts become available in the middle of June.

    The company has issued the following statement for customers:

    “Until your workshop appointment, if you specifically notice that your steering wheel is slightly out of line, your vehicle is pulling to one side, or if you hear distinctive noises coming from the rear axle area, please immediately park your vehicle safely and contact the nearest official Porsche Centre by phone.”

    “Alternatively, should you require immediate assistance outside of business hours, please contact Porsche Roadside Assistance on 1800 659 911.”
