WE ARE ACCEPTING CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF THE PORSCHE EMISSIONS SCANDAL WHICH IS SEPARATE TO THE ONGOING HIGH COURT ACTION AGAINST VW
OWNERS AFFECTED BY THE PORSCHE DIESEL EMISSIONS RECALL CAN CLAIM NOW ON A NO WIN, NO FEE BASIS
Are you eligible for a Porsche Emissions Compensation Claim
You could be eligible to sign-up for a Porsche Diesel Emissions Compensation Claim for the pending UK action if you own or lease, or used to own or lease, an affected vehicle.
The models affected may include:
- Porsche Macan 3.0 Litre V6 Euro 6
- Porsche Cayenne 3.0 Litre V6 Euro 6
- Porsche Cayenne S 4.2 Litre V8
- Porsche Panamera 4.0 Litre V8
Please note that this list is not the final list as investigations are ongoing and we continue to monitor diesel engine problems, fixes, and software updates of the various models. Porsche 911 models may also be affected, and anyone with a 3.0-Litre V6 diesel engine vehicle that was manufactured between 2009 and 2018 could be eligible to sign up for a claim.
If you have had problems with your vehicle, we are interested in hearing from you. Whether you have had Porsche Cayenne diesel engine problems, or issues after a fix being applied, this could be an important factor to include in a claim. We are aware that some Porsche Macan problems have occurred after they had undergone recalls for a diesel software update, and we continue to monitor issues as we move ahead with our compensation action.
Claim Compensation In The Porsche Emissions Scandal Action
You may be eligible to join our legal action for owners affected by the Porsche emissions scandal. We have been representing Porsche clients for several years, and our Group Action has already been launched.
IMPORTANT: This action is separate to the original Volkswagen Dieselgate scandal that emerged in 2015, and constitutes separate Porsche Diesel Emissions Compensation Claims in the UK.
We believe that Porsche vehicles have been fitted with defeat devices. Although there is little information in the public domain about the precise effects the recall may have on vehicles, we understand Porsche allege there will be no change. However, based upon what we know so far in terms of how vehicles can be adversely affected once a software update has been applied (VW received thousands of complaints following the implementation of their emissions software updates arising from the VW emissions scandal), we expect that some vehicles involved in the Porsche diesel emissions recall will suffer problems which could include:
- A requirement to replenish AdBlue more often. This conforms to the purpose of AdBlue, which is used to negate harmful pollutants, including NOx;
- Increased fuel consumption that may be caused by the engine operating less efficiently (which is how NOx emissions are reduced);
- Decreased acceleration for the same reasons as above;
- The vehicle feeling slower or more sluggish as a result of the reduced efficiency and performance changes caused as a consequence of reducing dangerous NOx emissions.
We have already been informed that, following the application of software alterations, the problems referenced above can develop. Given what we know about how NOx is reduced and how NOx reduction can decrease the performance of a vehicle, we expect to see some owners who have had the "software update" applied experiencing changes to their vehicle.
It is our aim to ensure that owners affected by the Porsche Emissions Scandal whose vehicles suffer from adverse effects following the "software update" will be adequately compensated. Our Porsche Emissions Action is designed to ensure you receive the compensation you may be entitled to.
Your Lawyers: Expert Consumer Action Firm
We are already acting for Porsche owners and have been doing so for a number of years. We acted for over 10,000 owners affected by the VW "dieselgate" emissions scandal and were appointed to the Steering Committee leading the action by order of the High Court of Justice. This means we are already set up with the necessary infrastructure to launch the separate action for Porsche owners who claim with us, having launched over 50 actions to date. We have recovered millions of pounds in compensation for Claimants over many years, and Porsche owners could each be entitled to receive tens of thousands of pounds in damages.
NOx is an incredibly dangerous pollutant that is responsible for tens of thousands of premature deaths around the world. That is why life-saving legislation is in place to ensure vehicle manufacturers like Porsche reduce the volume of NOx emissions emitted by their vehicles. We are pursuing Porsche diesel emissions compensation claims in the UK to hold the carmaker to account for any alleged wrongdoing.
A defeat device that restricts NOx-reducing technology - which is what we believe this to be - is an unacceptable approach. We firmly believe that companies that act unethically should be required to compensate consumers who suffer loss as a result of their failure to comply with the legal requirements.
As experts in consumer law and group actions, we will pursue compensation for owners affected by the Porsche Emissions Scandal who we believe are entitled to damages.
About The Porsche Emissions Recall
The Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt (KBA) - Federal Motor Transport Authority - has confirmed the existence of "inadmissible defeat devices" in Porsche Macan vehicles, and this triggered the Porsche diesel emissions recall in the UK. Letters about the recall were sent out to owners, although we believe that certain 'technical measures' may have already been applied to vehicles as part of routine services since 2015 when the VW "dieselgate" emissions scandal broke in the news.
If you own a Porsche Macanvehicle, you should check into any work that has been carried out in the past that may be related to software updates.
For some, the letter sent out as part of the recall explained that Porsche has developed a "software update" for its DME (Digital Motor Electronics) control software. The re-programming of the DME control unit is said to improve the engine control system in relation to the production of Nitrogen Oxide emissions (NOx). The letter also explains that the update has been approved by the KBA and that the estimated duration of the work to be carried out is approximately one hour. Owners affected by the Porsche emissions recall are being asked to contact their preferred centre for a booking.
Parent company Volkswagen AG accepted a €1bn fine issued in Germany and admitted responsibility for the diesel crisis in relation to the VW emissions scandal. The VW emissions action continues to proceed in the High Court, where it has been established that VW deployed defeat device technology in vehicles. We launched a different action for those affected by the separate Porsche recalls and emissions issues.
This may well be the tip of the iceberg. We understand that the KBA has issued Porsche with recall notices relating to other Porsche diesel models, including the Cayenne 3.0-litre V6, Cayenne 4.2-litre V8 and the Panamera 4.0-litre V8.
No Win, No Fee Action For Porsche Emissions Scandal Claims
As expert consumer action lawyers, we are committed to access to justice. With our No Win, No Fee arrangement, we will not ask you to make any payment towards our legal fees unless we win or settle your case successfully, subject to your compliance with our Terms and Conditions.
We are investigating the most appropriate causes of action, but we consider, based upon information currently available, that claims for owners affected by the Porsche diesel emissions recall will likely include one or more of the following:
- Breach of contract against the dealership and / or against the manufacturer financier;
- Breach of the (amended) Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 ("CPUT") against the dealership and /or the manufacturer financier; and/or
- A claim in deceit against the manufacturer itself.
In cases where there has been a breach of the CPUT regulations, depending upon the severity of the breach, the claim can range from 25% to up to 100% of the purchase price of your vehicle. The price of a new Porsche Macan in the UK is from £46,000.00, which means owners claiming damages as a result of the Porsche emissions scandal could be entitled to tens of thousands of pounds in compensation.

We understand that the current scope of the software recall is limited to 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine models in the Euro 6 emissions class. However, as recall notifications have been issued for Cayenne models with the 4.2-litre V8 diesel engines in the Euro 5 and Euro 6 emissions classes, and for Panamera vehicles with 4.0-litre V8 diesel engines in the Euro 6 class, other owners may also be entitled to claim compensation. We are currently investigating this possibility.
Do I Have To Have The Re-Programming Of The DME Control Unit?
The letters about the re-programming of the DME control unit say that Porsche has agreed with the KBA to contact all owners of affected vehicles. The letter does not confirm whether the DME control software update is compulsory. As such, if you own a Porsche Macan and are invited for a recall in the UK, it is your choice as to whether you engage with the recall or not.
But one of the most important things to note is that, if the DME control software update causes any problems to your vehicle afterward, joining our legal action is the way forward for compensation.
