PORSCHE Has Recalled the 2002 GT2

(SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has released the following information.

Make : PORSCHE Model : GT2 Year : 2002

NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number : 03V027000 Recall Date : JAN 29, 2003

Component: CHILD SEAT:TETHER/HARNESS

Potential Number Of Units Affected : 32

Summary:
CERTAIN TWO-SEAT, TWO-DOOR COUPE MODEL PASSENGER VEHICLES FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL
MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 225, CHILD RESTRAINT ANCHORAGE SYSTEMS. THESE VEHICLES WERE NOT EQUIPPED
WITH A TOP TETHER ANCHORAGE AS REQUIRED BY THE STANDARD. OWNERS WHO WISH TO USE A CHILD RESTRAINT WITH THE
AIR BAG DEACTIVATION DEVICE REQUIRING A TOP TETHER IN THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT CANNOT CORRECTLY INSTALL
THE SEAT DUE TO THE LACK OF THE TOP TETHER ANCHORAGE.

Consequence:
IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH, THE CHILD MAY NOT BE PROPERLY PROTECTED.

Remedy:
DEALERS WILL INSTALL THE TETHER ANCHORAGE. PORSCHE HAS NOT YET PROVIDED AN OWNER NOTIFICATION SCHEDULE.
OWNERS WHO TAKE THEIR VEHICLES TO AN AUTHORIZED DEALER ON AN AGREED UPON SERVICE DATE AND DO NOT RECEIVE
THE FREE REMEDY WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME SHOULD CONTACT PORSCHE AT 1-800-545-8039.

Important Note Regarding Auto Recalls
Frequently SafetyAlerts will list auto recalls before
your dealer will know about them. If you have a vehicle
affected by one of these posted recalls be sure and
write down the NHTSA 
CAMPAIGN ID Number.
If your dealer doesn't know about the recall when you
check, ask them how they are notified of recalls and
when the next update is due.
