Porsche Cayenne V8 and V8 Turbo Engine Plastic Coolant Pipe Defects

The Porsche Cayenne sport utility model was first introduced in the U.S. in 2003. The brochure for the vehicles states: "Keeping cool is essential to any engine. A high-performance engine can only maintain its maximum capability over a long service life if all components are operating consistently within a specific temperature range. The engines in the new Cayenne models are therefore designed for optimal cooling." Porsche Cayenne class action lawsuits allege that Porsche installed plastic coolant tubes in models with the V8 or V8 Turbo engine, rather than aluminum tubes, knowing the plastic version was likely to degrade and crack. This causes coolant fluid to leak, and seep directly into the vehicle's starter and seals, and can cause the engine to overheat. The loss of coolant can cause significant engine damage and engine failure.

When Porsche Cayenne owners present their vehicles for repair, they discover that plastic coolant tubes like those originally used in their vehicles are not available. They are forced to purchase expensive, aluminum tubes from Porsche. The aluminum pipes cost around $1,000 - significantly more than the plastic piping originally included with the vehicles.

Porsche Cayenne class action lawsuits allege Porsche made a corporate decision to conceal these defects from consumers. The lawsuits further allege that Porsche has chosen not to warn Cayenne owners of the potential dangers of a sudden coolant spill, and continues to promote the Cayenne V8 and V8 Turbo engine and its components as safe, reliable and free from material defects. The lawsuits also claim that rather than fix the problem, Porsche has chosen to exploit owners of the affected Cayenne vehicles by forcing them to pay for the cost of new parts, labor charges, and any resulting engine damage.

Porsche Cayenne class action lawsuits seek orders requiring Porsche to recall all Cayenne vehicles with plastic coolant tubes and fix the problem by replacing them with aluminum tubes. In addition, these lawsuits are seeking money damages to compensate all affected Porsche Cayenne owners.
