Porsche Cars Australia has recalled 5328 examples of its model-years 2014 to 2019 Macan, Macan S, Macan GTS and Macan Turbo.
The recall relates to a risk that the service cover for the fuel pump may come into contact with the fuel filter flange if the rear seats are occupied, potentially damaging the flange. If damaged, it could result in a fuel leak, which may cause a fire.
Porsche has confirmed it will contact affected owners by mail, and customers can reach out directly to their nearest Porsche Centre to have the issue resolved.
The company notes that in the meantime, owners should avoid using the rear seats. If a fuel smell is observed, the vehicle should be parked and Porsche contacted immediately.
There have been no reported cases so far of this issue leading to a fire.
