An issue with the car's brake monitoring software, shared with the Cayenne, means drivers can easily dismiss warnings about worn pads.

Porsche has recalled the 2017-19 Panamera, over concerns about the brake wear warning light.

According to the company, an issue with the car's software can mean the red brake wear warning light doesn't illuminate when the pads are worn out. Instead, only a yellow warning light will be shown, and can be dismissed by the driver.

If the message is constantly ignored, drivers could be driving around with worn brake pads, putting them and other road users at higher risk of an accident.

A total of 226 cars are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here.

Porsche will contact owners of the affected cars and advise them to organise a software update with their dealership.
