Vehicles Affected: Approximately 33,200 model-year 2010-16 Porsche Panamera hatchbacks

The Problem: Water may enter the air-conditioner blower control unit, which could cause an electrical short circuit and increase the risk of a fire.

 The Fix: Dealers will add a relay harness to the air-conditioner blower control unit and reseal it to prevent water from entering it; the repairs will be done free of charge.

What Owners Should Do: Porsche will begin notifying owners June 23. Owners can call the automaker at 800-767-7243, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
