Kudos to Porsche for being thorough and accountable, right down to the finest details. While Porsche has had some recalls lately, they’ve stemmed from an overabundance of caution on non-vital issues. This most recent recall affects brake fluid sold by Porsche dealers. A batch of fluid produced between September 1, 2015 and August 31, 2016 was found to be labeled incorrectly for its true specification. The affected part numbers are as follows:
- 00004330552 – 1L bottles
- 00004330553 – 30L bottles
This issue mostly affects dealers, though if you’ve had a system flush or refill at your local dealer recently it may be worthwhile to ensure that your vehicle received the correct fluid. Details of the recall can be found here.
