2017-19 Porsche Panamera recalled

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.

Porsche has recalled the 2018-19 Cayenne, over concerns about an issue with the brake wear warning light. According to the company, a problem with the car's software could mean the red brake wear warning light won't be illuminated continuously when the brake pads are worn. Only a yellow message, which can be dismissed, will be shown instead. If the message is ignored for too long, drivers could drive with worn out brake pads, leading to a higher risk of accident.
