Porsche PCM Malfunction Lawsuit

Software update damages Porsche vehicle’s computer system


Our attorneys filed a class action lawsuit against Porsche alleging that a satellite radio-related software update sent in the spring of 2020 damaged or destroyed vehicles’ Porsche Communication Management System (“PCM”), requiring costly repairs. On June 23, 2023, the court granted final approval of the settlement.

Under the settlement, eligible Porsche vehicle owners and lessees who spent time or money dealing with their vehicle’s PCM rebooting problems may file a claim for reimbursement.

Complete information about who is a Class Member and what you might be eligible to recover under the settlement can be found in the Porsche PCM Class Action Settlement Notice. Class Members can file a claim and read the Notice on the Settlement Website. Click here to file a claim.

Porsche PCM Lawsuit

Porsche’s PCM is the central control unit for all “infotainment” applications, including radio and sound settings, connected mobile devices, navigation system, and voice control.  According to the complaint, the software update damaged the PCM computer, causing the unit to continuously reboot, emit a static sound, and drain vehicle batteries. Some Porsche dealerships acknowledged the software update likely caused the problem, but Porsche had initially refused to cover repair or replacement of the PCM—which can total thousands of dollars.
