Porsche has announced that it will be recalling over 16,500 vehicles in two separate notices related to fastening screws and defective airbags.
In the first notice, 16,429 911, Boxster and Cayman models manufactured between October 2015 and September 2016 are being recalled to address an issue with fuel collection pipe fastening screws. The company reports that the screws could shear off as a result of stress corrosion cracking, causing fuel to leak into the engine compartment and result in a fire.
In the second notice, the Volkswagen division is recalling roughly 85 sports coupes to replace seat-mounted airbags that may not deploy properly in the event of an accident. Affected models include the 2017 model year 718 Boxster and Boxster S, 718 Cayman and Cayman S, 911 Carrera, Carrera S, Carrera S Cabriolet, Carrera 4S, Carrera 4S Cabriolet, Turbo S and Turbo Cabriolet.
Both issues will be resolved by replacing the affected components at no cost.
