More than 11,000 Panameras are affected worldwide

German carmaker is recalling hundreds of new Panamera sedans in the region after concerns about the safety of its front seatbelts.

The decision is because of worries that the car’s seat belt stalks could fail if the seat is in its forward most position. Some 11,324 cars around the world are affected, including 504 in the and 1,380 in the Porsche Middle East region, which includes the GCC, India, parts of Africa and the Levant.

Some of the cars affected in the region are yet to be delivered to customers. They will be fixed before delivery.

A statement from Porsche Middle East reads: “Porsche  requests  all  Panamera  drivers  to  contact or visit their local Porsche Service Centres. An  additional  safety  element  on the seat belt fastening point has to be fitted on 11,324 of the 2010 model year.

“This  is  a  preventative  measure  carried out at no cost to the customer. There are no reports on any incidents related to this matter. The  repair  is minor and will take a very short time. The respective spare parts  are  available  in  all  regional  Porsche  Service  Centres  in the sufficient quantities.”
