Porsche is recalling 409,477 of its Cayenne SUVs as a “preventative measure” over an issue related to the vehicles pedal brackets.
In the UK a total of 14,600 of the premium 4x4s, sold between 2011 and 2016, will be returned to dealerships for an inspection which, the brand said, would take “less than half an hour”.
In a statement issued this afternoon a spokesman for Porsche Cars Great Britain said that cars were being recalled as a “preventative measure”, adding: “The reason for this is that a circlip could be loose on the bearing bracket for pedals. The correct assembly will be checked in the workshop.
“The problem was found during internal inspections and remedied in the ongoing series.
“Vehicle owners will be contacted directly by the Porsche dealer responsible for them.
“A workshop appointment that will be free of charge will be arranged as quickly as possible and will take less than half an hour.”
