Porsche Carrera GT recall: Australian owners told not to drive their cars
Owners of the 2003-06 Porsche Carrera GT are being told to park their cars until they can towed to a dealer and inspected.
Porsche has recalled 11 examples of the Carrera GT supercar in Australia, to fix a problem with the chassis control arm mounts.
According to the recall notice, "the chassis control arm mounts may not meet specifications and could corrode over the life of the vehicle. If the chassis control arm mounts corrode or crack, this could cause a reduction of vehicle control".
"A reduction in vehicle control could increase the risk of an accident causing injury or death to the vehicle occupants, other road users and bystanders."
Porsche is strongly recommending owners don't drive their cars until they've been inspected by a Porsche Centre.
"Due to the delay in the availability of parts, owners can organise to have their affected vehicles towed and inspected at an Official Porsche Centre by prior arrangement," the brand says.
"If the inspection does not show any abnormality on the affected components, the vehicle can still be used without restriction until the optimised components are retrofitted."A total of 11 cars are included in the recallA VIN list of affected vehicles is attached hereThe original recall notice is attached here
