Is there a recall site for Europe to check?

This site says I have zero recalls, though.

My 4S is arriving in Baltimore in two days. The Porsche site doesn't acknowledge the VIN yet, but a free site https://www.vehiclehistory.com/ does and it shows all Porsche 2021 Taycan, 911 and 718 models have this issue:

"Certain suspension components may not have been tightened correctly and can loosen.

Consequence:
Loose suspension components may detach, causing a sudden loss of vehicle stability and control, and increasing the risk of a crash."

Should be a quick fix

Well this is bad news.

https://www.autoblog.com/buy/2021-Porsche-Taycan/recalls/

I have a car on a boat to me for delivery next week. I am not able to look it up on Porsche's recall site because the VIN isn't punched yet.

Can anyone with a recent delivery check their VIN against the official recall site?

Here is the NHSTA WEB address for the 2021 4S:

https://www.nhtsa.gov/vehicle/2021/PORSCHE/TAYCAN%25204S/4%2520DR/AWD#recalls

There is also an app you can get that will alert you if a recall has been issued. My 2021 is supposed to be delivered late this month.

The latest recall is dated May 17 and concerns a defectively forged trailing arm. Porsche is supposed to notify owners of this recall by July 17.

This same website provides a summary of communications between the mfg and the NHTSA. There have ber 70 of them on various issues to date. I don’t know whether this number is high or not for a new model. But the summaries of conversations with the mfg may be useful if you are having a problem in the area discussed.

I flew a high performance aircraft as a private pilot for about 20 years, being based a National airport in Washington (DCA). These notices and conversations remind me a little of the service bulletins and airworthiness directives that would emerge periodically. They would require a trip to your mechanic, and then off you go! We are lucky to have this government resource monitoring the fleet. It provides additional safety for all. This forum also serves a similar purpose.

I do not believe that you are quite right saying ALL taycans have this issue, there is a set of cars that have been identified as having this fault. not ALL
the site that you are depending on for the info appears to be in error.
