If you own a first generation Panamera be aware that Porsche is recalling 33,206 sedans in North America because a potential electrical system failure could lead to a fire in the vehicle.

According to Driving.ca "Most of all first-gen Panamera trims are affected," including:

- The 2010 through 2016 Panamera S and 4S
- The 2011 through 2016 Panamera, Panamera 4 and Turbo
- The 2012 through 2016 Panamera Turbo S and S E-Hybrid
- The 2013 through 2016 Panamera GTS
- The 2013 Platinum Edition and 4 Platinum Edition
- The 2014 to 2016 Panamera 4S Executive, Turbo Executive and Turbo S Executive
- The 2015 Panamera Diesel, Edition, 4 Edition and Turbo S Exclusive Series

The defect involves water entering the air conditioning blower control unit, possibly leading to a short-circuit over time, which in turn poses a fire risk.

While drivers should be able to detect something is wrong while driving, the short circuit could also happen when the vehicle is shut off, and so Porsche is asking owners to park their Panameras outside until the vehicle has been fixed.

Dealers will add a relay harness to the blower control unit in affected vehicles and reseal it to protect it from water damage.
