Porsche to recall Cayenne over cheat software

Porsche to recall Cayenne over cheat software

Porsche will recall 22,000 Cayennes which use an emissions defeat device on the 3.0-litre TDI V6 diesel engine (developed by Audi) in Europe. While the German transport authorities will be withdrawing the certification for these vehicles, Porsche will bear 100 per cent of the recall cost.

German authorities confirmed that since the vehicle is still in production, they will impose a registration ban on vehicles that are still being sold until the updated software is available. It is estimated that 7,000 of the 22,000 Cayennes are registered in Germany. Porsche will need to act quickly and retain the confidence of customers since the Cayenne is undisputedly one of Porsche's most popular models.

It was just last week that Daimler and Audi announced a recall to fix their diesel vehicles in Europe. Reports also state that there are allegations against VW, BMW and Daimler to conspire on cheating emissions for quite some time. German authorities now have their eyes on the VW Touareg. If they find a similar software installed in it, this car will also end up with a similar plight. Stay tuned to CarWale to check out how this chapter unfolds.
