Porsche AG — Porsche Panamera (971) MY2017-2019
What are the defects?
Due to an issue with the car's software, the red brake wear warning light is not illuminated continuously when the brake pads are worn out. Only a yellow warning message is shown in the multi-functional display, which can be confirmed and then suppressed until the car is next started.
What are the hazards?
If the yellow warning message is continuously ignored, customers could use the vehicle with worn out brake pads. This may lead to a higher risk of an accident.
What should consumers do?
Affected owners will be contacted by mail or can contact their nearest Porsche dealer to arrange an inspection and repair of the vehicle. The car will be reprogrammed with updated software.
