Porsche Panamera recalled over potential fire risk
Porsche has recalled 243 examples of its 2015-2021 Panamera due to an issue that could result in a vehicle fire.
“Due to a design defect, moisture may leak into the additional coolant pump’s control unit. This may cause an electrical short circuit and result in a vehicle fire,” the brand says in its recall notice.
“A vehicle fire could increase the risk of injury or death to vehicle occupants, other road users or bystanders.
“Note: The AUTO REST button in the centre console should not be pressed until the replacement pump has been fitted.
“Owners of affected vehicles should temporarily park their vehicle outdoors and a sufficient distance away from other vehicles and buildings to minimise any possible risk to persons as well as the surrounding area.”
