Recall roundup: Porsche 918 Spyder for bad wiring harness image

Several units of the Porsche 918 Spyder are the subject of a recall which has been recently announced by the German based automaker in order to correct a bad wiring harness.

If you thought that buying a hypercar instead of the supercar will get you rid of the regular recalls, think again, because this is a lesson owners of the impressive Porsche 918 Spyder will have to find out soon. According to the car manufacturer, all units of the hybrid vehicle will have to be taken back to the dealers because of a problem with the wiring, which has been identified after a “detailed examination of inquiries”. The carmaker is announcing the recall for vehicles made until the end of April this year and it is affecting a total of 223 units in the United States alone.

“Porsche has issued a global recall for 918 Spyder models that have already been delivered. This precautionary recall for a service inspection affects 223 vehicles in the United States. This is because the electric wiring harness for a radiator fan in vehicles manufactured up until the end of April 2015 could be damaged by a carbon-fiber component. The wiring harness will be examined and optimally remounted in the work shop”, says the carmaker in the press release.

Owners of the affected hypercars will be notified directly by Porsche Cars North American and a “meeting” with a dealer will be made. The necessary repairs / replacements will be made free of charge to the owners and it seems that this will be arranged “as quickly as possible”. The inspection will require the vehicle to be left in the shop for half a day.
