Porsche recalls more than 70 thousand crossovers Macan

In cars of 2015-2018 years of release, a probability of fuel leakage was detected.

In the near future, the German automaker will notify customers of a revocable campaign that will affect 70,117 previous-generation Porsche Macan cars. A service promotion is associated with a potential risk of fuel leakage that could result in a fire.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), fuel leaks can occur on Porsche Macan, Macan S, Macan GTS, and Macan Turbo models released between 2015 and 2018. The recall documents state that in some rare cases the fuel pump cap may deflect and exert pressure on the nozzle on the fuel pump filter flange. This can cause cracks that can contribute to fuel leakage.

There is no specific information on how Porsche will solve the problem, but the recall will officially begin on April 10, 2020. Reportedly, the problem will affect only 1% of all recalled vehicles.

Interestingly, this is not the first time the Macan has responded due to fuel leaks. In 2017, Porsche began recalling 51,497 Macan cars, in particular the 2015-2017 Macan S and Macan Turbo versions, as well as the 2017 Macan, Macan GTS and Macan Turbo cars with the Performance Package. And in 2015, 21,835 Macan crossovers were recalled due to the low-pressure fuel line in which the leak was detected.
