Porsche has just issued a recall for its most impressive model ever created, the 918 Spyder, because of some problems with the rear-axle control arms.
When we are talking about a supercar which is worth almost 1 million USD, recalls are unacceptable, especially when that supercar is made in a very limited number of just 918 units and it is signed by Porsche. The German based automaker has recently issued a recall for the 918 Spyder, because of the rear-axle control arms. Porsche says that there are a total of 45 units affected worldwide while the NHTSA is saying that 5 units can be found in the United States.
“The affected vehicles may have been manufactured with rear-axle control arms that may break, causing difficulty controlling the vehicle. If the control arms break, the driver may lose control of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash”, says the NHTSA in its official press release.
In case you are wondering what to do, don’t worry, because there is no difference in the procedures between the Porsche 918 Spyder and, let’s say, a Volkswagen Up!, because the company will notify the owners, schedule a meeting with the dealers and make the necessary repairs / replacements, free of charge of course. For any extra details, owners can contact Porsche at 1-800-767-7243 or the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236.
