When you make that all-important decision to purchase a high-end sports vehicle you expect to get superb build quality, more so with a German car, but we know too well that this is not the case anymore. If you wanted anymore proof of this then the recent news that Porsche is to recall the 2012-2013 911 Carrera and Carrera 4 models will prove this point.
If you have one of these vehicles and they were built between March 7, 2012 and November 12, 2012 then you may want to contact your local dealer or head over to the NHTSA website to see if you are affected by this upcoming recall.
There is a possibility that the standard version exhaust system could fracture at the tip, which means that it could fall away from the rear muffler. This issue is said to affect 2,263 Porsche 911 units.
As you would imagine if the exhaust system were to fail then there is a fear that this could fall off and not only become a hazard to you, but other road users as well, in the worst case scenario there could be a crash.
Thankfully Porsche will rectify this issue by replacing the rear muffler for free, although the German car manufacturer has yet to announce when they are to start the recalls. If you are concerned then contact Porsche on 1-800-767-7243 or the NHTSA 1-888-327-4236.
