A defective capacitor may cause voltage fluctuations in the power supply of the airbag control unit. As a result, the airbags and the seatbelt pre-tensioners may deploy unexpectedly or fail to deploy in the event of an accident, increasing the risk of injury to the occupants.
The Porsche Cayman models affected by this recall were manufactured between 23 June 2015 and 16 June 2016.

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.
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.
