Porsche is recalling 193,000 vehicles because of a safety issue.
Yonkers-based Consumer Reports says that Cayenne and Macan SUVs, Cayman S coupes, and Panamera sedans from the 2003 to 2020 model years need to be fixed because the caps that cover the low-beam headlight horizontal adjustment screws are missing.
This can lead to the headlights being improperly adjusted, and may not illuminate the road properly or cause a glare to oncoming drivers, which can increase the risk of a crash.
“While horizontal headlight adjustment was possible on older vehicles, it has not been the case for a number of years,” says Jennifer Stockburger, director of operations at Consumer Reports' Auto Test Center. “Even if the caps are not in place, it’s not something that is intended to be adjusted. Only vertical adjustment is allowed.”
Owners seeking information can contact Porsche’s customer service at 800-767-7243.
