Porsche 918 Spyder, the hiperdeportivo hybrid German.
In just 6 months, the Porsche 918 Spyder has been faced with two calls to review. The first of them during the summer of 2016 and now, a few days of the end of the year appeared the second call to review, again promoted by the NHTSA , and affects, therefore, only to those exemplary americans.
If in the summer the problem was a defect in the seat belts affecting all the drives manufactured, now it is a problem with the suspension, and have been called upon to review 306 units, all of them in the united States. These are the copies manufactured between November 6, 2013 and July 27, 2015. These units were replace the lower arm of the suspension, due to a possible failure in your joint, which could trigger breakage.
This repair will take place in 2017, although there is no date assigned yet, and will be completely free for customers of the brand, which for the moment has not specified if there are units affected by the same problem outside of the north american market.
Only produced 918 units of the spectacular sports.
These are not the first calls to review the spectacular hiperdeportivo hybrid German, since its launch, users of the model have been seen as the brand called them to modify or replace certain minor details. On one occasion was due to electrical problems, which affected all the units in all markets. This problem was localized to an element of carbon fiber, which could damage the electrical wiring of the fan on the radiator.
Although just half a year before were also called to about 200 customers to replace a item not specified on the chassis, this problem also affected the suspension, and again, the repair was the responsibility of the brand itself.
All of these calls to review evidence of the zeal with which the German brand is their products. There are few brands that look the other way when dozens of customers complain of the same and obvious problem.
