Porsche is recalling certain model year 2012 911 Carrera S vehicles manufactured from October 26, 2011, through January 24, 2012. Interference between a coolant line and a fuel line may cause the fuel line to become disconnected at the quick connector.
NHTSA campaign id number: 12v107000
Component: Fuel system, Delivery Hoses, lines/piping, and fittings
Potential number of units affected: 1,232
Consequence: If the fuel line becomes disconnected, a fuel leak may occur. A fuel leak could lead to the engine misfiring or stalling, increasing the risk of a crash. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source could increase the risk of a fire.
Remedy: Porsche will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel line with a new fuel line, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin in April 2012. Owners may contact Porsche at 1-800-767-7243.
Porsche's safety recall number is AC02.
