Porsche AG is recalling 887 sports cars because the seatbelt could be faulty, according to news reports .
Porsche said the recalled sports cars have a faulty the seatbelt could be too loose and not protect occupants.
The recall includes 235 vehicles in the U.S. including 911 Carrera, 911 GT3, 911 Speedster, 911 Targa, 911 Turbo, Boxster and Cayman. The vehicles were made in model years 2011 and 2012
“About 10 percent of the cars, which are two-door coupes made from May 31 to June 10, contain the defect, Porsche told the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in a notice posted today on the agency’s website .”
Defects with the seatbelt is caused by the mounting holes for seat-belt anchor plates, which may be too small. The defect could cause the plat to not rotate around the fastening bolt as designed when tightening the belt, according to news reports.
As a Columbia personal injury attorney , I hope Porsche was able to catch this problem before any injuries or car accidents were caused. I urge car owners to get this problem fixed as soon as they are notified to do so, in order to prevent any personal injuries from occurring.
