I received the "Important Safety Recall" letter yesterday for the AKA3 issue. A couple of key sentences that may be of interest are as follows.
What will we do? Porsche is remedying this issue by having Porsche dealers add rivets to the affected cross member, bringing it into specification, free of charge.
What should you do? Please make contact with your authorized Porsche dealership to schedule a remedy appointment, and to arrange in advance for a Porsche loaner vehicle should you require alternate transportation during the repair period. Affixing additional rivets is expected to take approximately two hours to complete.
Two things I noticed is that (1) the repairs would be performed by the Porsche dealer but I suppose the dealer could still sub the work to a local body shop as noted in a previous post, and (2) the repairs would take approximately two hours to complete. So that would lead me to believe the repairs would be done in-house which could be a good or not-so-goo thing depending on the dealership.
