Porsche inspects 2,500 Macans for faulty brakes

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 29, 2014

Porsche is inspecting around 2,500 Macan for defectives brakes after finding out during quality tests that some brake booster units may have received some damage in the assembly process. Porsche will have its dealers contact Macan for a free inspection that lasts a few minutes, the carmaker said. The majority of the SUVs were sold to European customers.

The inspection only affects the Macan and excludes other Porsches models. The issue with the defective brakes marks another production glitch at Porsche, although the German carmaker noted that the Macans with the faulty components still comply with legal requirements.

Porsche disclosed in March that it is replacing the engines in its 911 GT3 models. It also urged them to stop driving the units since the sports cars could catch fire.

In February, Porsche forecasted that it would top 200,000 vehicle sales by 2015, three years ahead of schedule, from 162,000 in 2013, thanks to strong demand for its Macan and Cayenne SUVs.
