— A Porsche Communication Management (PCM) settlement is final for owners of vehicles equipped with PCM 3.1 (infotainment) systems and XM radio antennas.
The Porsche class action lawsuit alleges the vehicles received an update in May 2020 which caused the PCM 3.1 systems to continuously turn on and off.
The PCM settlement includes "all entities and individuals in the United States who, as of May 20, 2020, owned or leased" any of these vehicles.
- 2010-2016 Porsche Panamera
- 2011-2016 Porsche Cayenne
- 2012-2016 Porsche 911 Carrera
- 2012-2016 Porsche Boxster
- 2012-2016 Porsche Cayman
- 2015-2016 Porsche Macan
According to the PCM class action lawsuit, the May 2020 update caused the infotainment systems to enter a near-continuous rebooting cycle which drained the batteries and caused loud static noise.
