"Late this morning, Porsche Cars North America, Inc. received a notice of violation from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regarding the 2015 Porsche Cayenne Diesel.

"We are surprised to learn this information. Until this notice, all of our information was that the Porsche Cayenne Diesel is fully compliant.

"Porsche Cars North America will cooperate fully with all relevant authorities," the company said in the press release.

Meanwhile, Porsche is conducting an examination of 58,881 Macan S and Macan Turbo vehicles around the world, of which 21,835 are in the United States and 3,490 are in Canada.

The reason for this move is a possible leak in the low-pressure fuel line inside the engine compartment. The line will be replaced in the workshop. This is a purely precautionary measure, as there have been no reports of accidents or injuries as a result of this concern.

The work will take approximately one hour and will be carried out free of charge.
