Porsche is recalling 1,232 model-year 2012 Carrera S vehicles because their fuel lines may leak, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
In the affected vehicles, which were built from Oct. 26, 2011, through Jan. 24, interference between the coolant line and fuel line may cause the fuel line to disconnect. If the fuel line becomes disconnected, a fuel leak may occur and cause the vehicle to misfire or stall, increasing the risk of a crash or a fire.
Porsche will notify owners next month, and dealers will replace the fuel line for free. Owners can call Porsche at 800-767-7243 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
