Porsche has issued a recall for 3,176 Panamera vehicles from the 2010 model year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The recall affects the Panamera S, 4S and Turbo four-door sedan.

In some of these vehicles, there is a defect with the front seat so that if it’s adjusted to an extreme position, the mating components may break and the seat-belt locking mechanism can’t be trusted. The seat-belt mount could break from the anchoring system when the belt is fastened or open. In a crash, the belt could fail, increasing the risk of injury or death for any passengers.

Dealers will install an additional locking element on the seat-belt anchoring system for both of the front seats for free. Owners may contact NHTSA’s vehicle safety hot line at 888-327-4236.
