Starting August 26, Porsche's China sales company will recall 11,515 Cayenne models manufactured between July 7, 2008 and February 5, 2010 as well as 45,685 Panamera models manufactured between August 21, 2009 and September 13, 2016, according to a statement on the website of the State Administration for Market Regulation.
On affected vehicles, the bushing that attaches the shifter cable may degrade and detach from the transmission, which could cause the driver unable to move the shift lever properly.
Under extreme circumstances, the problem may result in unintended vehicle movement, posing risks of injury or crash, said the statement.
The company will replace the faulty components free of charge.
