Porsche issues global recall for all Panameras
Porsche has issued a global recall for all Panameras made up to February 25 this year to fix a problem with the front seatbelt.
If the seat is set in an extremely far forward position, it is possible that the seatbelt mounting may not lock as it should, meaning it could not provide sufficient restraint in the case of a crash.
Porsche stresses that there have been no reported incidents so far, but as the fault is linked to safety it has decided to issue a recall. It has also said that the seat would have to be very far forward for the fault to cause a problem.
The recall affects 11,300 Panameras sold worldwide, with 404 of these being UK cars. Porsche expects it will be a simple fix, and the recall should not take long to complete.
