RECALL: Porsche 911 Carrera S and Carrera 4S

Stuttgart. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, is having the exhaust tailpipes exchanged worldwide on 18,627 units of the 911 Carrera S and 911 Carrera 4S. This involves cars built between 20 April 2004 and 21 October 2005.

The exhaust tailpipes fitted to the tail mufflers during this period might have inadequate welding seams between the fastening clamp and the tailpipe itself. Since these welding seams may break, there is a risk of a rattling noise developing on the tailpipes while driving. Should the driver keep on going nevertheless, the tailpipes may fall off. So far approximately 30 cases have been reported worldwide, leading to reports from customers.

The cars involved are required to spend about 25 minutes at the workshop. The remedy is to fit new exhaust tailpipes to the tail muffler with improved welding seams ensuring a safe and firm connection. The recall is naturally free-of-charge to customers, who will be informed shortly.

I remember when this recall happened. Unfortunately manufacturing standards and practices don't always guarantee a quality product, even with trusted brands like Porsche. If there is anything I learned from that recall, its to have a good mechanic (preferably one that has worked with, or is connected to your car dealer). My mecahnic works with my auto dealer, and he is the one who tipped me off about the recall. Without him, I might not have known, and I would have continued driving my car - which would have been a serious risk and road hazard.
