About the Volkswagen SUV Recall
According to Bloomber, this recall affects 409,447 Porsche Cayenne SUV’s and 391,000 Volkswagen Touareg vehicles from model years 2011 to 2016. The Cayenne was Porche’s best selling model before being overtaken by the Macan, its smaller SUV sibling. Bloomberg reports that Porsche sold 86,016 Macans and 79,700 Cayennes in 2015.
According to reports, a clip can become loose on the bearing bracket for the pedals on the cars, which are sister models and share some of the same components. Without this clip, the pedal hinge could crack and cause the pedal to be dislodged. This could make it impossible for the driver to apply the brakes.
This defect was found when internal checks were being performed. Dealers will immediately contact the owners to fix this problem.
This repair should take less than a half an hour to complete.
This recall does not affect Audi’s sister model Q7. The sister brand Audi and Cayenne, Toureg, and the Q7 share the same technology as well as some parts of the cars. All three of these are manufactured at the Volkswagen factory in Bratislava, Slovakia
