AIR BAGS

3/25/2010 - KENSINGTON, CA
THERE IS A PERSISTENT PROBLEM WITH THE AIR BAG. RECORDS (FROM PREVIOUS OWNER) SHOW THAT THERE WERE REPAIRS TO THE WIRING HARNESS AND SEAT BUCKLE AT 39,786 MILES, AGAIN AT 44,056 MILES, AND ONCE AGAIN AT 45,157 MILES. OVER THE PAST TWO YEARS (AS THE CURRENT OWNER), I HAVE HAD THE AIR BAG LIGHT TURNED OFF TWICE BY THE DEALER (AT AROUND 50,000 AND 52,000 MILES) BUT THE LIGHT HAS REAPPEARED AFTER A PERIOD OF OPERATION. ALTHOUGH THIS IS SAFETY RELATED ITEM, PORSCHE SAYS IT IS NOT OBLIGATED TO MAKE THE REPAIR SINCE THE CAR IS OUT OF WARRANTY. THEIR DEALER ALSO STATED (LAST YEAR) THAT IF I PAID FOR SUCH A REPAIR (ABOUT $1000) AND THE PROBLEM REOCCURRED OVER TIME, I WOULD STILL HAVE TO PAY FOR THE REPAIR A SECOND TIME. PORSCHE SEEMS NOT TO ABIDE BY THE STATEMENT ON THE NHTSA WEBSITE THAT "IF A SAFETY-RELATED DEFECT EXISTS IN A MOTOR VEHICLE OR ITEM OF MOTOR VEHICLE EQUIPMENT, THE MANUFACTURE MUST PROVIDE A REMEDY AT NO COST TO THE OWNER." MANY OTHER OWNERS OF THIS VEHICLE APPARENTLY HAVE HAD THE SAME PROBLEM WITH THE AIR BAG. SOMEHOW, PORSCHE USA SHOULD BE FORCED TO COMPLY WITH NATIONAL REGULATIONS AND/OR POLICY. THEY ARE VERY UNRESPONSIVE.

AIRBAG LIGHT IS ILLUMINATED AFTER 54K MILES. AFTER READING PORSCHE FORUM POSTS AND CONTACTING MULTIPLE DEALERS, I HAVE LEARNED THIS IS A _VERY_ COMMON ISSUE. IT MAY OR MAY NOT RESULT IN FAULTY AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT.

FUEL SYSTEM, OTHER: STORAGE: FUEL GAUGE SYSTEM

1/22/2007 - LOS ANGELES , CA
-THE CONTACT OWNS A 1999 PORSCHE 911 CARRERA . THE CONTACT RESEARCHED RECALL NOTICE# 00V109000. WHEN THE CONTACT FILLS THE VEHICLE WITH FUEL TO CAPACITY THE FUEL GAUGE READS EMPTY. THE VEHICLE DOES NOT START IMMEDIATELY WHEN THE GAS TANK IS AT CAPACITY. THE VEHICLE WILL ONLY START AFTER SEVERAL ATTEMPTS. WHEN THE ENGINE IS TURNED OFF THE CONTACT HAS TO MAKE SEVERAL ATTEMPTS TO RESTART THE VEHICLE. THE CONTACT CALLED THE DEALER TO SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT TO HONOR THE RECALL AND WAS ABRUPTLY TOLD THAT THEY KNEW NOTHING ABOUT THE RECALL, AND THERE WOULD BE A CHARGE TO UPDATE THE SOFTWARE IN THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER SO THAT THE FUEL LEVEL AND THE RANGE OF REMAINING FUEL ARE DETERMINED AND DISPLAYED CORRECTLY. THIS FAILURE ONLY OCCURS WHEN THE CONTACT FILLS THE GAS TANK WITH FUEL TO CAPACITY.
