Porsche AG is recalling 2,893 units of its Porsche Macan models from Russia because of possible leaks in its fuel injections pipes, according to the Russian Federal Agency on Technical Regulation and Metrology (Rosstandart).
The cars that will be recalled were sold there from the 24th of January 2014 up until the end of October this year.
The report published by Rosstandart says that “The reason for revocation was the likelihood of the leakage of low-pressure fuel line at its connection to the distribution pipe system of the engine on the cars covered by the recall. In rare cases this can lead to the emergence of foreign smell due to seepage of a small amount of fuel.”
The owners of the cars that are going to be recalled will be notified by authorized dealers of Porsche Russland. They can also find out if their cars are under review by comparing the car’s identification number (VIN) with a list that is available on Rosstandart’s website. If the results match, they can further schedule a repair at the nearest authorized dealership for a problem fixture. The subsecretariat at Rosstandart stated that all the work on the cars in this campaign will be free of charge for the owners of Porsche Macans.
Porsche sales in Russia in the first eleven months of this year went up a massive 20% compared to the same period of time in 2014. The total number of cars the German carmaker managed to sell this year in Russia reached 4,829 units, with 360 models sold in November.
