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.
