Default New Macan Recall

Have you guys received any info on a new recall from Porsche to Macan owners that was released 4 days ago?

#AH02 REPLACE SEAT OCCUPANCY DETECTI

My car is a 2015 Macan Turbo.

I haven't received anything from Porsche USA yet, but this was an alert triggered by my CarFax on my car, so it should be coming soon. Any news or anyone with more info into it?

Andre, Just got on the line with my local dealership here in the US. NOTHING said on our Macan.

Can you do me a favor please,

Please post your Model year and variant of the Macan that this refers to?

That would help all of us and let us all determine if our vehicles are under this recall.

Andre, Just got off the phone with my dealer.........no issues on ours 2017.

If you haven't done so check out Rennslist to see if there are other folks that have the same problem. Perhaps, we haven't seen this in the MACAN forum yet!

Weird. I have a 2015 Macan Turbo and the VIN number triggered no recalls. Maybe their website hasn't updated, or maybe Canada is different. Will be taking car in for service next week so we'll see!

I wouldn't rely on CarFax for anything.

Weird. That site says my Vin isn't recognized or there's an error with the site.

Can someone explain what exactly this recall is for?

Just picked up my car (2015 Macan S) from having new exhaust due to mid-engine bracket issue.

Was told by Service Manager that a recall had just posted yesterday regarding the passenger seat airbag occupancy sensor. At this point, they only have the notice and no specifics of what fix is involved.

He assured me it's good to drive until Porsche issues instructions on how to fix. Unsure of time frame.

Ordered: 2015 Macan S, Agate/full black leather/brushed aluminum, PASM/AS, 20" Spyder wheels with monochrome crests, Premium Package Plus, gloss black roof rails and window trim, factory blades and fascia, model delete, ACC/PAS, LCA, 3-zone climate, smoker's pkg.
