It has just been announced that Porsche is recalling the 918 Spyder in the US, due to a seatbelt fault.
Although, we haven’t seen that many recalls lately, following the “Dieselgate” scandal, which affected millions of vehicles, there have been a few so far this year.
Porsche has just revealed that a seatbelt fault in the Porsche 918 Spyder, could cause serious problems, if left untreated, which is why the brand has decided to recall the car in the US.
It hasn’t been revealed how many vehicles are believed to be affected by the fault; however, so far only US models are being recalled.
UK models haven’t been mentioned yet, but it’s possible that we could get a similar recall in this country.
According to Porsche, it’s a very minor issue that can be fixed quite quickly, but if left untreated it could result in the seatbelts not working properly in case of a collision.
Since, seatbelts are one of the most important safety features in any vehicle, it’s good to know that Porsche is not willing to risk it, by letting its customers drive in affected vehicles.
It’s not believed anyone was harmed due to the fault, so the brand has its mind set on fixing the fault before it claims any lives.
This is the fourth recall in total, of the Porsche 918 Spyder, which suffered from a number of minor issues throughout its production run.
Regardless, it remains a popular vehicle with car-buyers, and the fact that the brand has been willing to offer a solution to all the issue that emerged, is proof that it’s a good vehicle to invest in.
Recalls are never ideal, but they’re necessary to keep things running smoothly and ensure safety of all motorists.
In this case, it doesn’t appear to be too serious, as the fault has been detected before anything bad could happen, but let’s hope that this is the last 918 Spyder recall, so that customers can enjoy their vehicles without fearing for their safety.
