Porsche 911 GT3 recall expanded to Australia image

The German based automaker Porsche has recently announced that the 911 GT3 recall has been expanded to Australia because of a problem with the rear axle.

After the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a recall not too long ago for the 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 in the United States, time has come for the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) to announce a recall too locally, because of the same problem. According to the ACCC, the driver may lose control of the vehicle and increase the risk of a crash of injury because of the rear wheel hubs and bearings, which might break.

“If the rear wheel hubs and bearings break, the driver may lose control of the vehicle and create a hazard to the driver and other road users”, as the ACCC is saying.

The 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 (997) users in Australia will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get this problem fixed. Porsche says that a total of 36 units of the above mentioned models, produced between February 19, 2009 and April 6, 2010, will be affected by this recall. The fix will take approximately six and a half hours to complete.
