Porsche Boxster (2018 – 2019)

Published on 30 September 2019

Possible faulty construction of the door moulding causes the sensors of the vehicle occupant protection system to be activated incorrectly. This may result in unnecessary and unexpected deployment of the occupant protection system, increasing the risk of injury.

The Porsche Boxster models affected by this recall were manufactured between 12 January 2018 and 17 June 2019.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Porsche dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

How to contact your dealer

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.

Check the vehicle


UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
