According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Porsche is recalling 1,702 Porsche 911 models that have “interlocking hub and wheel assemblies” because the hubs can wear down prematurely. If this occurs, the wheels could loosen.

Porsche has not specified when the recall will begin, but dealers will replace the central locking hubs and wheels for free. Porsche’s recall number is AB01, and the automaker can be reached at 1-800-767-7243. Affected owners may also contact NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153) or visit www.safercar.gov.
