Porsche recalls over 6,000 Taycans in Canada and US over concerns child seats may not secure properly

Porsche Taycan

Porsche has issued a recall for 2020-2021 Taycans in both Canada and the United States for child seat problems.

Transport Canada’s recall covers 778 Taycan, Taycan Turbo, Taycan Cross Turismo and Taycan Cross Turismo Turbos. The NHTSA recall covers 5,305 Taycans of the same configurations south of the border.

According to the recall notice, the problem is with the centre-rear seat belt buckle wiring harness on cars with optional center rear seats. The automaker says that although rare, the wiring harness may have been incorrectly installed at the factory which could prevent a child seat from being properly secured.

“On certain vehicles, the wiring harness for the centre-rear seat belt buckle could interfere with the lower universal anchorage system (UAS) for securing a child seat. As a result, you may not be able to properly attach a child seat in the right-rear seat using the UAS.”

The NHTSA says Porsche became aware of the issue in July 2021, and implemented changes at the factory to prevent the issue from recurring.

Porsche dealers will inspect the harness and reposition it if necessary.

Porsche isn’t aware of any complaints associated with the issue, and estimates only 2% of the vehicles included in the recall are impacted.
