Bowen v. Porsche Cars N.A., Inc., Case No. 1:21-cv-00471 pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia.
If your Porsche Communication Management System ("PCM" or infotainment system) experienced rebooting on or after May 20, 2020, you could get a payment from a class action settlement.
Your rights may be affected by a class action settlement.

• A class action settlement has followed from allegations that some Porsche infotainment systems (the PCM 3.1 system with XM satellite antenna) went into a reboot cycle on or after May 20, 2020. Porsche denies any wrongdoing. The parties have reached a settlement to avoid a trial and provide class members with compensation now.

• The settlement will provide (1) reimbursement of out-of-pocket costs incurred to address PCM rebooting (subject to certain limitations), including PCM replacements or repairs, battery replacements, towing, and alternative transportation costs, up to $7,500; or (2) if you spent time dealing with the rebooting issue but have no out-of-pocket costs to claim or don't have documentation of your out-of-pocket costs, your choice between (a) a $25 payment or (b) a $50 dealer credit.

• To qualify, you must have owned or leased a Porsche vehicle as of May 20, 2020, that was equipped with an XM satellite radio antenna and a PCM 3.1 system.
