Recall Issued for All Porsche Taycan Vehicles due to Brake Concerns

Porsche Initiates Recall for Leaking Front Brake Hoses on Taycan

Porsche has recently initiated a recall for leaking front brake hoses on the Porsche Taycan. The automaker received seven reports in the U.S. about this issue and conducted extensive tests to address the problem. As a result, Porsche is recalling every Taycan produced since its launch in 2020 to ensure the safety of the vehicles.

Possible Warning Messages for Owners
Owners of the affected Taycan models may receive various warning messages if a certain amount of brake fluid is lost. These messages could include ‘brake fluid low’ or ‘PSM failure.’ If a yellow warning light appears, owners can safely drive the car to the dealer for the necessary repairs.

Replacement of Front Brake Hoses
To address the issue, dealers will replace the front brake hoses with longer lines of a new construction that allow for gentler routing. The entire process is expected to take approximately two hours and will be completed free of charge for the owners.

Contact Information for Porsche Customers
Letters informing owners of the recall will be mailed from Porsche on July 3. In the meantime, Taycan owners can contact Porsche customer service at 800-767-7243 and mention internal recall number ARB0. They can also reach out to the NHTSA’s Vehicle Safety Hotline or visit their website for more information.

Further Safety Instructions
Porsche advises owners that if a red warning light appears, they should not drive the vehicle and should have it towed to the dealer or contact Porsche for assistance. The company has confirmed that the rear brake system continues to work as intended despite the issue with the front brake hoses.

In conclusion, Porsche’s recall of the Taycan models is a proactive measure to address the leaking front brake hoses and ensure the safety of the vehicles. Owners are encouraged to contact Porsche for more information and to schedule the necessary repairs to prevent any potential safety hazards.
