Porsche is recalling around 74,585 units of Panameras worldwide, manufactured between 21 March 2016 and 6 December 2018, to fix a software error which can cause the electric power steering to be occasionally unavailable for a limited period.
If that happens, more force is required to steer the vehicle. In order to fix this issue, the associated control unit needs to be re-programmed with an updated data record as a precautionary measure.
Owners of the affected vehicles are being contacted in writing and asked to attend their Porsche Centre as soon as possible. Porsche says that the workshop visit will take around an hour, and the fix is free of charge.
