    This information is NOT correct!
    Porsche did NOT recall any 911 models recently, just the first built ~22000 Cayenne.
    I'm in the US on a family vacation right now, so I don't have more details but there is NO 911 recall!

    Here is another source on the possible 911 recall: Seattle Post web page

    A sample quote:
    Quote:
    Porsche said Friday it also is recalling 1,805 of its 911 sports cars from the 2003 model year in North America because the seat backs don't meet strength standards.




    This information has me wondering. Looking at the NHTSA website, it shows a 911 recall for seats but the body of the report refers to the Cayenne transfer case problem. Since it's a recent posting there is probably a mixup between the two recalls from Porsche.

    RC:

    Well aware of the info you posted, but our screwed up government run dept of transportation put this info in their recall mandate list....and it shows the 911 in nearly all variants for '03 as included in the recall. Go figure.

    Hi,

    that with the seat backs is correct.


    I get a letter from Porsche where it says that there were safety problems with the seats and must be replaced.

    At least it's nothing serious

    This is really funny: Porsche immediately officially denied any recent 911 recall after the DOT issued that info and I'm also not aware of any 911 recall.
    I think there might be some confusion: some sources said that Porsche recalled the 911 due to engine lubrification problems, some other sources say it is because of faulty seat backs. I'm not sure if Porsche just denies the engine problem thing or the seat back thing, this is really confusing.
    Maybe there should be some clarifying message from DOT or PCNA. But right now, there is NO official 911 recall.
    Of course I can't exclude that there will be one in the near future.

    BTW: the VW Touareg has NOT been recalled in the US (only in Germany and some other countries) because the problems have been fixed before the cars were delivered to dealers.
