Recall roundup: 2010 Porsche 911 GT3

The German based automaker Porsche has recently announced a recall for the 2012 911 GT3 because of a problem with the rear wheel hubs which might fail.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 455 units of the 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 will be affected by this recall in the United States and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers. The NHTSA says that the affected vehicles have a problem with the rear wheel hubs which might fail under certain driving conditions and this might lead to the loss of control.

“Also, the original suggested maintenance intervals may be insufficient to prevent wheel hub failure. If the rear hub fails, there may be a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash”, as the NHTSA says in its summary of the problem.

The affected Porsche 911 GT3 sports cars have been produced between the 15th of May, 2009, and the 11th of February, 2010. The recall will begin sometimes this month (December, 2012) and the company’s dealers will replace the wheel hubs on the rear axle, free of charge. Meanwhile, owners are being advised to contact Porsche at 1-800-767-7243.
