    Cayenne Recall

    I called my dealer and he said that there is no recall at all, the only recall I have is the fuse box, W335, and he said that the recalls brought up by the internet is not accurate.

    Is this true?

    Re: Cayenne Recall

    I think the recall is pretty clear. It's been reported from various credible news sources and is listed on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website. It's more than rumor. From the NHTSA website (link):

    Quote:
    Make: PORSCHE
    Model: CAYENNE S
    Year: 2004
    Recall Number: 04V069000
    Summary:

    Consequence:
    IN EXTREME CASES, TO A CABLE FIRE BENEATH THE INSTRUMENT PANEL IN THE PASSENGER COMPARTMENT.
    Remedy:
    DEALERS WILL RE-ROUTE THE WIRING HARNESS. THE MANUFACTURER HAS NOT YET PROVIDED AN OWNER NOTIFICATION SCHEDULE FOR THIS CAMPAIGN. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT PORSCHE AT 1-800-545-8039.
    Notes:
    CUSTOMERS CAN ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION’S AUTO SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-DASH-2-DOT (1-888-327-4236).

    And the second one (MY2004 only)...

    QUOTE
    Make: PORSCHE
    Model: CAYENNE, S, TURBO
    Year: 2004
    Recall Number: 04V071000
    Summary:
    CERTAIN SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES MAY HAVE HAD A TRANSFER CASE INSTALLED THAT COULD, DUE TO CHANGES IN THE HOUSING CASTING, RESULT IN THE OIL PUMP ROTATION. SHOULD THIS OCCUR, OIL STARVATION OF THE INTERNAL GEARS MIGHT RESULT.
    Consequence:
    CONTINUED OPERATION OF THE VEHICLE COULD RESULT IN A FRACTURE OF THE TRANSFER CASE HOUSING. INCORRECT TORQUE WOULD THEN BE APPLIED TO THE DRIVEN WHEELS OR OIL COULD LEAK AND CONTACT THE TIRES.
    Remedy:
    DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE TRANSFER CASE HOUSING AND, IF NECESSARY, REPLACE THE TRANSFER CASE. THE MANUFACTURER HAS NOT YET PROVIDED AN OWNER NOTIFICATION SCHEDULE FOR THIS CAMPAIGN. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT PORSCHE AT 1-800-545-8039.

    Year: 2003
    Recall Number: 04V068000
    Summary:
    ON CERTAIN SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES, IF THE GROUND CONNECTION BETWEEN THE SPIRAL RING OF THE TANK FILLER NECK AND THE CONNECTING PIPE TO THE FUEL TANK IS INADEQUATE, THE FLOW OF FUEL DURING REFUELING CAN CREATE AN ELECTROSTATIC CHARGE, WHICH COULD DISCHARGE AND SPARK. THIS SPARK COULD IGNITE FUEL VAPORS IN THE AREA OUTSIDE THE TANK FILLER NECK THAT COULD LEAD TO A MUFFLED DETONATION.
    Consequence:
    DUE TO SUCH A STARTLING EVENT, THE INDIVIDUAL REFUELING THE VEHICLE COULD REMOVE THE FUEL NOZZLE AT PRECISELY THE MOMENT OF THE DETONATION WITHOUT FIRST STOPPING THE FUELING PROCESS. IN SUCH A CIRCUMSTANCE, FUEL ESCAPING OUTSIDE OF THE FUEL TANK MAY IGNITE, RESULTING IN A FIRE.
    Remedy:
    DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE GROUND CONNECTION AND, IF NECESSARY, CORRECTED. THE MANUFACTURER HAS NOT YET PROVIDED AN OWNER NOTIFICATION SCHEDULE FOR THIS CAMPAIGN. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT PORSCHE AT 1-800-545-8039.

    Re: Cayenne Recall

    I would just wait if I were you, there is no way your dealer will have info yet.

    The Atlanta carrier pigeons are slow to get around. :-)

    Re: Cayenne Recall

    It's possible the dealer may not yet know what to do or also it's possible your vehicle may not be part of the recall. Try calling the Porsche number listed and see what response you get. Personally, I'm not getting too excited about any of the recalls. If I get a letter I may call but otherwise I will probably wait until I need to go in for regular maintenance and have it done then.

    Re: Cayenne Recall

    alright man, I'll wait, anyway when it burns, I can get a replacement car lol!!

    I need to fix my keyless entry sensors, 2 of them are not working, so once the parts are ready I will go to the dealer and do the recall things at the same time.
    thanks guys!!

    I'm not sure if this is true but I've been told that US dealers will contact all customers who own Cayennes affected by the recall as soon as possible. It may take a while though.

    Re: Cayenne Recall

    RC: they don't really call us, I've never had any phone calls for my X5 either. They will only call when there is a service survey.
