Porsche Taycan recalled over faulty airbags
Porsche has announced a recall for the all-electric Porsche Taycan as wiring harnesses under the front seats could become damaged during adjustment, potentially causing airbags and belt tensioners to fail.
According to a report from Germany’s KFZ-Betrieb the recall affects 40,421 Taycans, although it’s not known how many UK cars this applies to.
During the recall, Porsche says the “seat wire harness will be inspected for damage. Textile fabric tape will be added to further secure the harness under the seat and help prevent potential for harness damage during seat adjustment.”
An internal code on the recall is ANA5, which applies to Taycans built from July 10, 2019 to May 18, 2021. The recall was first listed on 2 May this year.
This isn’t the first big recall from Porsche for its Taycan EV in recent years. In July 2021, around 43,000 Taycan and Taycan Cross Turismos from 2020 and 2021 had to be recalled. This was due to a possibility of an unwarranted powertrain shutdown. This issue could be fixed with a software update at Porsche dealerships for no extra charge.
Another, less dangerous recall is currently out for Taycan models. It’s a software error in the infotainment where the centre and driver’s display do not start when the ignition is on. This can be fixed by re-programming with corrected software.
