2021 Porsche MACAN
  • Date of Incident: Mar-06, 2024
  • Date complaint filed: May-21, 2024
  • Failed components: STRUCTURE:BODY

The sunroof exploded outward as i was driving alone on the road. It was a loud bang and sounded like a gun shot. It scared me and i swerved. Luckily, i did not crash, and the sun visor was closed otherwise, the glass would have fell on me and possibly into my face and eyes - very dangerous! The dealer claimed that a rock probably hit it, but there was no rock that hit my sunroof and the glass blew outward - see attached pics. The sunroof was eventually repaired by the porsche dealer and paid by my insurance with my deductible. No warning at all. It just blew out! Please check if there is a design flaw with the type of glass used which could affect the structural integrity of the glass with temperature changes and pressure created when opening and closing the doors of the vehicle. The porsche dealer claimed that they were not accountable, yet i did absolutely nothing to cause this to happen. My insurance has gone up and i lost a lot of time dealing with this.

2017 Porsche MACAN
  • Date of Incident: Mar-01, 2024
  • Date complaint filed: Mar-14, 2024
  • Failed components: AIR BAGS and ENGINE

Airbag light comes on and off intermittently i am aware there were some problems with the airbag sensor that year and recalls for other models, not my vin, i have called and confirmed there are none for mine. Seems to act up more after or while i have a passenger so i suspect (almost positive) this is for the passenger airbag. Also when i have a passenger the amber indicator that says airbag on off will randomly switch to off and i'll get the dash light. This makes me think its the airbag weight sensor pad that deteriorates easily that other cars had a recall for but not mine. No water was spilled on the seat before it started acting up the way it has been. As well, the engine motor mounts have a tendency to break fairly easily and fast causing vibrations and possible safety issues.

Coolant venting hose leaking. Apparently, a known problem with porsche design but nothing has been done about it. It cost me $3,500 to get it fixed after the car stopped in the middle of highway and had to get towed to the porsche dealership. Someone has to do something about it!

2018 Porsche MACAN
  • Date of Incident: May-20, 2023
  • Date complaint filed: Feb-24, 2024
  • Failed components: AIR BAGS

The airbag light came on in the vehicle. We took it into the dealership, they said we need a passenger airbag sensor mat and seat cushion for the passenger seat airbag system. This item was recalled in 2018 porche macon nhtsa campain id 21v131000/recall ama2. Porche said since our vin was not included in the recall we have to pay to fix it. They said the only way to get our vin added was to contact nhtsa. The quote to fix an item that has been recalled was over $1,800. It doesn't seem fair to have to pay for something that has been recalled for this car and is known to be defective. The vehicle is ready for inspection anytime. The passenger safety is at risk as defined by the recall. "the air bag will not deploy during a crash if a front passenger is undetected, increasing the risk or injury. " the problem first appeared last year around may 2023 and it took a while to get an appointment at the dealership. I was not aware of this recall until today when i did a kelly blue book value on the vehicle. I just called porche and they said there is nothing they can do and to contact nhtsa to get our vin added to the recall list. Attached is the repair estimate from the porche dealership.
