Recall for Gas Leaks and Engine Fires

When it comes to the 911 Carrera, the 911 Targa, or the 718 Boxster, there’s an indisputable fact – those cars are hot. As in, their engines can leak gas, spark a flame, and turn into one of the world’s most expensive bonfires.

What did you think I meant?

Porsche is recalling about 4,100 cars because the fuel collection pipes’ fastening screws can shear off and lead to gas leaks. While there haven’t been any fires yet, Porsche knows it’s only a matter of time. The recall affects 37 engine types:

The recalled replacement engines are 2.0L, 2.5L, 3.0L LP and 3.0L HP engines with part numbers 9A2100920 X, 9A2100925 X, 9A2100927AX, 9A2100930 X and 9A2100930AX.

New Settlement Details for 3.0L Cayenne Diesel Owners

The government has released new settlement details for 83,000 owners of 3.0-liter TDI diesels, and it varies based on if you’re driving a Porsche, Audi, or VW.

While some Touareg and Q7 owners will be eligible for buyback options, owners and lessees of 2013-2016 vehicles will be getting a fix that VW says won’t affect the performance of their cars.

But that’s not all they’re getting:

Once the repairs are approved, owners and lessees will keep their vehicles and each receive compensation ranging from $8,539 to $17,614. Former owners of the newer cars will each receive $4,269 to $8,807 in compensation.

Hot dang, even if you don’t even own a Porsche Cayenne TDI anymore you may be eligible for significant financial payout. And if you’re leasing one, you’ll soon be getting a check and the option to get out of your lease early. There’s more details on CarComplaints.com.

3-liter Diesel Settlement Reached

A settlement has been reached for about 83,000 owners of 3-liter TDI vehicles with v6 diesel engines. This will affect any owner of a 2013-2016 Porsche Cayenne diesel.

VW has agreed to recall about 63,000 model year 2013-2016 Audi, Porsche and Volkswagen 3-liter V6 vehicles to fix the emissions systems, dependent on if regulators approve the recall modifications. If the automaker cannot fix the vehicles, a buyback offer will be made and leases will be terminated.

There are still some details to be ironed out and the agreement won’t be final until it’s approved by the court.
