Only two units recalled

Last year, the automotive industry was faced with recalls affecting millions of vehicle worldwide. Now, Porsche Cars North America, Inc. is hopping on the bandwagon as it recently announced a recall for the 2015 Cayenne... but only two units.

According to Porsche, they are recalling certain model year 2015 Cayenne Diesel and Cayenne S vehicles manufactured on November 26 to 27, 2014. The recall was issued by Porsche due to a manufacturing error involving the suspension alignment on the front and rear axles. The automaker goes on by saying that the screw connections of the camber, toe and caster may not have neen tightened with the specified torque.

The said issue may lead to a reduced vehicle handling, increasing the risk of a crash. To address the issue, Porsche will notify the owners of the two 2015 Cayennes as well as its dealers who will perform a front and rear suspension alignment, free of charge. Dealers will also check the screw connections of the two 2015 Cayenne.

Perhaps Porsche now has the title of holding the smallest recall in automotive history.
