While it’s unlikely that most of us drive a Porsche, particularly because of cost and risk, a recent lawsuit against the German automaker
is drawing attention because of how certain parts within an expectantly high-end vehicle are being put together. In this case, an arguably weak adhesive is being used to connect pipes in the coolant system, but plaintiffs argue that everyday driving itself is enough to cause that adhesive to wear down quickly, causing the entire engine to shut down without a driver having time to adjust. Some Porsche owners have even alleged that the company is replacing worn down parts with equally faulty parts, simply to save on costs, a negligence of customer safety measures.
At the very least right now, Porsche has admitted to prior failures, particularly with fittings on their coolant system. But the question of whether those things have yet been resolved is the argument of this most recent lawsuit. What that means to the rest of us, those who don’t drive a Porsche, is that we should be cognizant, as best we can, of the companies that work to repair the vehicles we drive.
