Editor's Overview

According to Porsche, the 2015 Macan SUV is not so much a baby brother to the Cayenne SUV as it is a "big brother to the 911." Truer words have yet to be uttered. The all-new, all-wheel-drive Macan will suit your gentleman racer more than your inner mountain man, but it still offers some utility and Ivy-League off-roadability.

Consequence:
A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire.
Remedy:
Porsche will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the flanges, replacing any that are cracked. Flanges that aren't cracked will have a protective film applied. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall began on July 19, 2017. Owners may contact Porsche customer service at 1-800-767-7243. Porsche's number for this recall is AH06.
Air Bags > Occupant Classification System - Ocs (front Passenger) Mar 1, 2017
Report Receipt Date:
Mar 1, 2017
NHTSA Campaign:
17V133000
Summary:
Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (Porsche) is recalling certain 2015-2016 Macan S and Macan Turbo and 2017 Macan GTS vehicles. The passenger occupant detection sensor mat may fail in the front passenger seat, deactivating the front passenger air bag. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 208, "Occupant Crash Protection."
Consequence:
In the event of a crash, if the front passenger air bag does not deploy as intended, the front passenger has an increased risk of injury.
Remedy:
Porsche will notify owners, and dealers will replace the sensor mat and seat cushion, free of charge. The recall began June 28, 2017. Owners may contact Porsche customer service at 1-800-767-7243. Porsche's number for this recall is AH02.

Report Receipt Date:
Oct 29, 2015

Summary:
Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (Porsche) is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Macan S vehicles manufactured March 27, 2014, to October 27, 2015, and 2015-2016 Macan Turbo vehicles manufactured March 5, 2014, to October 27, 2015. The affected vehicles have a low pressure fuel line in the engine compartment that may leak.
Consequence:
A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire.
Remedy:

Service Brakes, Hydraulic > Power Assist Jul 31, 2014
Report Receipt Date:

14V470000
Summary:
Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (Porsche) is recalling certain model year 2015 Macan vehicles manufactured March 6, 2014, to April 26, 2014. During manufacturing, the brake booster may have been damaged during installation.
Consequence:
If the brake booster was damaged during installation, the vacuum in the brake booster may drop when the brakes are actuated, resulting in a reduced brake force boost, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Porsche will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the brake booster, as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on December 29, 2014. Owners may contact Porsche customer service at 1-800-545-8039. Porsche's number for this recall is AE02.
