Vehicles Affected: Approximately 18,000 model-year 2015-16 Porsche Macan S and Macan Turbo SUVs, and model-year 2017 Macan GTS SUVs
The Problem: The passenger occupant detection sensor mat may fail in the front passenger seat, deactivating the front passenger airbag. If the airbag does not deploy as intended in a crash, the front passenger has an increased risk of an injury.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the sensor mat and seat cushion for free.
