  1. 2004 Porsche Cayenne SEAT BELTS NHTSA Campaign #04V593000

    • Date Announced: DECEMBER 15, 2004
    • Vehicles Affected: 31,000

    Summary: Certain passenger cars fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 208, "occupant crash protection." All three rear seat positions and the front passenger position are equipped with seat belt retractors that have a locking feature which converts the retractor from an emergency locking retractor (ELR) mode to an automatic locking retractor (ALR) mode for the purposes of child restraint installation. The belt may deactivate the ALR mode with certain child restraints.

    Consequence: When involved in a crash, the child restraints may not be properly secured increasing the risk of injury or death to the seat occupant.

    Actions: Dealers will permanently install a clip in either of the affected rear outboard seat belts and provide an owner's manual insert. The clips will prevent unwarranted conversion from ALR to ELR mode with child seat installation. The recall began May 17, 2005. Owners should contact Porsche at 1-800-545-8039.

    • Date Announced: FEBRUARY 18, 2004
    • Vehicles Affected: 4,099

    Summary: Certain sport utility vehicles may have had a transfer case installed that could, due to changes in the housing casting, result in the oil pump rotation. Should this occur, oil starvation of the internal gears might result.

    Consequence: Continued operation of the vehicle could result in a fracture of the transfer case housing. Incorrect torque would then be applied to the driven wheels or oil could leak and contact the tires.

    Actions: Dealers will inspect the transfer case housing and, if necessary, replace the transfer case. Owner notification began on May 3, 2004. Owners should contact Porsche at 1-800-545-8039.
