2014 Porsche Boxster recall
Dec 13, 2013Porsche has announced that they are recalling certain model year 2014 Boxster vehicles manufactured from September 2, 2013 through September 23, 2013. They stated that in these affected vehicles, the passenger seats may be equipped with defective wiring harnesses resulting in intermittent contact with the harness plug. The intermittent plug may cause the passenger seat frontal and knee airbags may be deactivated. In the event of a crash necessitating airbag deployment, this may increase the risk of injury to the front passenger. Porsche will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front passenger seat free of charge. Owners may contact Porsche at 1-770-290-3500.

What is a recall?
A recall is an action by the Company to remedy a safety or emissions related concern related to a vehicle defect or regulatory requirement. It may require that you return your vehicle to the dealer for service. If your vehicle is not affected, it may be because it was built at a different time or using a different part than the affected vehicles.
