2015 PORSCHE BOXSTER
NHTSA Campaign ID: 14V698000
Component: LATCHES/LOCKS/LINKAGES:HOOD:LATCH
Manufacturer: Porsche Cars North America, Inc.
Manufacture Dates: 05/07/2014 - 09/23/2014
Potential Units Affected: 1382
Defect Description:
Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (Porsche) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Porsche 911, Boxster, and Cayman vehicles manufactured May 7, 2014, to September 23, 2014. The front hood upper lock components were not manufactured to specification and may fail to securely latch the vehicle's hood during operation.
Consequence:
A failure of the hood latching mechanism may cause the hood to suddenly open during vehicle operation and will severely impede the driver's ability to see out the front windshield, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.
Action to take:
Porsche will notify owners, and dealers will replace the lock on the front hood, free of charge. The recall began December 12, 2014. Owners may contact Porsche customer service at 1-800-767-7243. Porsche's number for this recall is AE04.
