Thanks....I'm pretty sure this "defect" isn't limited to cars going to Canada....has anyone seen a US recall??

Only 47 units affected. I hope mine isn't one of them.

I checked with my SA and he told me that it isn't just a Canadian recall. There is a small number affected and it doesn't affect the first ones off the assembly line.

You guys beat me to it! My brother, who is the car safety business, sent me a notice of the recall just after 8:00 tonight, but I was busy painting and couldn't get on here to give a heads up. It would be interesting to know the dates affected.

Same question, how do we know? Will Porsche notify us based on VIN or do we have to take our Macan to a dealer for inspection?

My S isn't even built yet. I'm guessing I have nothing to worry about?
