STUTTGART, Germany – Porsche is recalling 22,000 of its popular Cayenne sport utility vehicles because of a wiring defect.
The Associated Press reports that wires near the parking brake may be a fire hazard because of possible chafing. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says the recall affects more than 10,000 vehicles in the U.S. NHTSA also says that Porsche is recalling more than 1,800 of the 2004 model year 911s. Company spokesman Stefan Marschall disputes that, and says they are not recalling any 911s.
The Cayenne recall is for vehicles produced between Oct. 1, 2002 and July 19, 2003. Porsche has not reported any injuries resulting from the defect.
