Porsche has recalled the 2003-2010 and 2009-2016 Panamera, over concerns about the transmission's plastic gear selector cable sleeve.

According to the company, the plastic sleeve on the selector lever cable mightn't be durable throughout the life of the vehicle. If the sleeve breaks, the transmission might not change into park when the driver shifts the lever to 'P'.

If the transmission isn't in park when the driver walks away, the car could roll away putting the driver and passers-by at risk of injury.

A total of 2632 cars are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here.

Porsche will contact owners of the affected vehicles and advise them to organise a free fix. The original recall notice is attached here.
