Oversteering on a Porsche Macan could be fun to drive; however, this can result in unwanted mishaps. Porsche is recalling nearly 243 model of the 2017 Macan due to a potential problem of oversteering in certain driving conditions.
The affected models which are being recalled are Macan, Macan S, Macan GTS, and Macan Turbo which were built between July 30 and August 9, 2016. As of now, there have been no reports of injuries or deaths related this particular problem.
As for the problem, the front anti-roll bar on the affected vehicles could be fitted with defective connecting links and could cause the connecting link bush to move.
Hence, the defective links can result in rattling noise and might cause the anti-roll bar to stop functioning while driving spiritedly.
So if the anti-roll bar stops functioning, handling the Macan will lead to oversteering. The dealers will inspect and fix if any defective anti-roll bar links for free.
Porsche will intimate the customers of the models shortly, but there has been no official announcement as of now. The Porsche Macan is a luxury compact crossover utility vehicle and the word Macan means "tiger'.
The Porsche Macan is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged mill churning out 249bhp and 370Nm of torque.
As for the Macan S, this comes with a 3.0-litre V6 twin turbo producing 335bhp and a peak torque of 460Nm.
While the diesel variant of the Macan GTS features the 3.0-litre V6 twin turbo and tuned 355bhp of power and 500Nm of torque.
Porsche has the diesel variant of the Macan S with two different states of tune churning out 208bhp and 254bhp respectively from the 3.0-litre V6 twin turbocharged engine.
