Recall Alert: 2010 Porsche 911 GT3

2010-GT3-1
Porsche is recalling 455 model-year 2010 versions of the 911 GT3 sports coupe due to problems with the rear wheel hubs, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In the affected vehicles, which were manufactured from May 15, 2009, through Feb. 11, 2010 (check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb), the rear wheel hubs are prone to fail. This could lead to a loss of vehicle control. Also, "the original suggested maintenance intervals may be insufficient to prevent wheel hub failure," according to NHTSA.

Porsche will notify owners later this month, and dealers will replace the wheel hubs on the rear axle for free. Owners can call Porsche at 800-767-7243 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
