Porsche Recalls 35 Units of the Taycan

Loose screws are causing the recall of 35 Porsche Taycans

  • Suspension screws could have been tightened incorrectly

  • Owners will be notified by January 18, 2022

  • This is the third recall for the Taycan in six months

Porsche launched a recall for its Taycan electric car due to a problem affecting the rear suspension of only 35 individual vehicles.

The affected units were built between June 17, 2020 and November 16, 2020 and they were identified using production records.

The problem comes from screws on the upper control arm of the rear axle that might not have been tightened to the correct specification. Loose screws could allow some suspension components to move past their intended stopping point and broken screws could cause a crash.

In order to fix this problem, Porsche dealers will install a new nut and bolt and they will tighten them to the correct specifications. An inspection of other suspension components will be performed and parts that have been damaged due to loose screws will be replaced, all at no charge to the owner.

Dealers will be notified by December 1 and owners will be contacted by mail by January 18, 2022.

This is the third recall for Porsche’s first electric car in the last six months. In June, a recall was issued due to a fracture risk in the front lower trailing arm, which could cause a loss of control and in July, another recall was announced due to an electronic issue that could cause a sudden loss of power. This last problem was fixed with a software update.
