Porsche Cars North America is recalling 17,871 2015-2016 Porsche Macan S and Macan Turbo cars as well as 2017 Macan GTS cars to address potential air bag malfunction, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

In these vehicles, the passenger occupant detection sensor mat may fail in the front passenger seat and deactivate the front passenger air bag, NHTSA said. As a result, the vehicles don’t comply with all federal safety standards.

Porsche dealers will replace the sensor mat and seat cushion, free of charge, to fix the problem. Vehicle owners can reach Porsche customer service at (800) 767-7243. Porsche’s number for this recall is AH02.
