Porsche 911 GT3 Recalled for Failing Rear Wheel Hubs

12/18/2012
One of the last things 455 owners of 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 models want to have happen to their track-ready sports cars is for the rear wheel hubs to fail, because that could cause a loss of control, followed by a crash. That's why Porsche is recalling the model to have dealers replace the rear wheel hubs free of charge.

The 455 affected vehicles were built between May 15, 2009 and February 11, 2010. In addition to replacing the affected components, Porsche will modify the service interval specifications to help to ensure improved rear-wheel hub maintenance, the automaker says.

Owners may contact Porsche with questions at 1-800-767-7243. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Campaign ID number for this recall is 12V558000.
