Porsche Macan

Porsche is investigating a potential brake issue with 2,500 of its new Macan CUVs. The inspection focuses on the state of the brake systems following tests that discovered the brake boosters may have been damaged during assembly.

Porsche has pointed out that, despite the concern, the affected Macans still meet safety regulations. The issue is predominantly found in European-spec Macans, which according to Porsche, have been delivered to consumers. Owners of affected vehicles in Europe will be notified and asked to come in for a brief, no-cost inspection.

American consumers, though, have no reason to worry. We reached out to Porsche Cars North America, who confirmed that the vehicles in question were assembled before US-spec cars were screwed together.

“There are no affected vehicles in the US market. The issue was confined to cars produced before the start of production for the United States,” said spokesman Nick Twork, in an emailed statement to Autoblog.

Of course, if this investigation expands, we’ll be sure to follow up. Take a look below for the official press release from Porsche.
