The engine is the heart of the vehicle. A car can’t drive without a properly working engine.
Common symptoms of engine failures include:
- Engine Control Module (ECM) warning lights on the dash
- Check engine lights
- No start, excessive cranking
- Lack of acceleration
- Loss of power
- Stalling (most often when attempting to shift gear)
Engine Cooling System Failure
A car’s engine cooling system is responsible for keeping the engine cool while it works to prevent overheating. The system does so by sending a liquid coolant through hoses and passages in the engine. As the coolant flows through these hoses and passages, it picks up and removes heat from the engine. The water pump has the job of keeping the coolant moving through the system, and the radiator re-cools the liquid so it can again be circulated through the passages in the motor.
Common symptoms of engine cooling system failure include:
- Overheating, especially on city roads or “stop-and-go” traffic
- Metallic smell coming from the engine compartment
- Coolant leaks
- Steam or smoke emanating from the engine compartment
The transmission or gearbox ensures that the correct amount of power reaches your wheels to drive at a given speed. The transmission ensures that the gear ratio between the engine and drive wheels adjusts to accommodate the desired speed of the car.
Common symptoms of transmission failures include:
- Whining and clunking
- Burning smell
- Lack of response, hesitation
- Lunging, or jerking
- Noisy in neutral
- Leaking fluid
- Premature clutch replacements
The turbocharger on a car applies a very similar principle to a piston engine. It uses the exhaust gas to drive a turbine that spins an air compressor. That extra air and oxygen is pushed into the cylinders at a high speed. This allows the engine to burn more fuel each second, making the car much faster.
Common symptoms of turbocharger failure include:
- Loss of power
- Slower and louder acceleration
- Difficulty maintaining high speeds
- Blue or grey smoke from exhaust
Suspension System Failure
A vehicle’s suspension system is responsible for smoothing out the ride and increasing control by reducing the impact of bumps and hazards in the road. The suspension system is made up of several components, including the chassis, which holds the cab of the car. The springs support the vehicle weight and absorb and reduce excess energy from road shocks, along with the shock absorbers and struts. Finally, the anti-sway bar shifts the movement of the wheels and stabilizes the car.
Your car’s suspension system must be in good condition. Worn suspension components may reduce the stability of the vehicle and reduce driver control, and accelerate wear on other suspension system components. Failed suspension parts can increase the risk of crash.
Common symptoms of suspension failure include:
- Vehicle rides lower than normal
- Vehicle looks uneven
- Abnormal noises during operation
- Vehicle pulling
- Feeling every bump
- Difficulty steering
Faulty Software Update
The Porsche Communication Management (PCM) is the central control unit for the car’s infotainment system, which accesses radio, audio, GPS navigation and other car features. If this malfunctions from a bad software update, owner’s are unable to enjoy their luxury cars to its full extent.
Common symptoms of a faulty software update include:
- PCM enters a near-continuous reboot cycle
- Vehicle’s battery drains
- Irritating and potentially dangerous static noise

Notable Porsche Recalls
Possible Fuel Leak May Cause Risk of Fire (NHTSA Safety Recall Campaign No. 20V077000)
- In February 2020, Porsche recalled over 70,000 vehicles for a defect in the fuel pump that may lead to a fuel leak.
- According to Porsche, Under load, the fuel pump service cover can contact a filter flange on the fuel pump. Over time, this can result in cracks in the service cover and/or flange, potentially leading to fuel seepage and fuel odor, increasing the risk of fire.
Air bag Sensors May be Loose (NHTSA Safety Recall Campaign No. 19V179000)
- In 2019, Porsche recalled several models with airbag sensors that may be loose.
- According to Porsche, in vehicles with the loose sensors the airbags may not deploy in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Missing Brake Pedal Clip May Cause Loss of Braking (NHTSA Safety Recall Campaign No. 16V169000)
- In March 2016, Porsche recalled over 88,000 vehicles for a missing brake pedal assembly circlip.
- According to Porsche,a circlip at the brake pedal may be missing, causing the brake pedal pivot to begin to move and lose guidance. This could lead the pedal hinge to fracture, allowing the pedal to dislodge preventing the driver from being able to apply the brakes.
At Wirtz Law APC, we are dedicated to protecting consumers from large automakers like Porsche. Porsche is a german auto manufacturer primarily specializing in high performance sports cars. The company is owned by Volkswagen and global headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany and U.S. headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia.
Porsche has experienced great sales success in recent years and claims to have the highest profit per unit sold of any car company in the world. In 2019, Porsche posted record sales in the U.S. The Porsche 911 is one of the best selling sports cars in the world.
Despite its sales success, Porsche is not without fault. Porsche Boxters are notorious for engine failure and the Porsche Cayenne has been recalled for faulty brakes, failing engine components, and malfunctioning headlights. Porsche vehicles are expensive to repair, with the average repair cost of about $1,200. Repairpal, an industry recognized auto-repair data tracker gives Porsche a Reliability Rating is 2.0 out of 5.0, which ranks it 32nd out of 32 for all car brands.
I think I have a lemon. What do I do now?
Under California’s Lemon Law, if you’ve given an automaker a “reasonable number of attempts” to repair your vehicle but the problems persist, your car might qualify for repurchase or replacement. Big automakers like Porsche often try to muddy the water and re-define the analysis of Lemon Law qualification to their benefit – which is why consumers should never fight the big automakers alone! Generally speaking, as few as two (2) repair opportunities can be enough for your car to qualify. Don’t rely on Porsche’s evaluation of your repair history, contact the professionals at Wirtz Law today.
