Porsche is recalling the 2013 and 2014 model year Cayenne due to a faulty fuel gauge recall that includes the entire US range, with 207 units affected.
The defective fuel gauge may cause the driver to be unaware of the actual fuel level in the tank. This, of course, can lead to the vehicle running out of juice and stalling, thus increasing the risk of a crash.

Like we said, the full US Cayenne line-up is affected, including the entry-level model, S, GTS, Turbo, Turbo S, S Hybrid and Diesel. Porsche announced it will update the instrument cluster software, with the automotive producer’s dealers set to handle the operation free of charge.

If you own one of the affected vehicles, you can contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 1-888-327-4236 or Porsche at 1-800-767-7243.

Porsche has also issued a second recall, with the campaign targeting airbag issues for it's sports car range.
