Porsche will be contacting the owners of certain 2015-2018 Macan SUVs because of a problem affecting the fuel system in their vehicles.
According to the defect report, under high load conditions there is a possibility that the fuel supply port at the filter flange of the fuel pump could contact the service cover. The supply port could develop hairline cracks over time, potentially leading to a fuel odor. Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source may increases the risk of fire.
Those receiving notices will be asked to return to their Porsche dealerships to have the fuel pump flange inspected and replaced as necessary. Technicians will also rework and apply a protective film to the fuel pump flange. Porsche’s number for this recall is ALA2 and the NHTSA campaign number is 20V-077.
