Porsche Recalling Over 100,000 Vehicles Due To Risk Of "Rolling Away" While In Park

Porsche recently announced that it would be recalling over 100,000 vehicles in the U.S. and Canada due to a risk of "fooling drivers into believing the transmission is in park", and rolling away, according to Car Complaints.

While a driver can move the gear shift to the "Park" position, and even remove the ignition key under the impression that the vehicle is in park, the transmission may not be moving along with it, according to the recall.

Without any warning messages or chimes, a driver could wind up exiting the vehicle and watch it roll down the street unattended. Porsche says the issue could be due to the plastic bushing that attaches the cable connection between the gear shifter and the gearbox detaching.

Porsche learned about the issue in December 2018 and promptly commenced an internal investigation that found "numerous incidents" of detached cable bushings. The company said it hasn't learned of any injuries or property damage reports as a result of the issue. The recall will begin August 11, 2019 and, as a result, Porsche dealers will replace the shifter cable bushings.

About 99,700 vehicles were recalled in the U.S. and 8,742 in Canada.

The full list of vehicles potentially affected is lengthy:
