2022 Porsche Taycan Problems and Top Complaints – Is Your Car A Lemon?

Back-up Camera & Electrical issues are among the top complaints from vehicle owners

The 2022 Porsche Taycan is a high-end electric car that was poised to change how people think about electric travel. In fact, the automaker boasts that it provides an “electric driving experience with even more intense emotion.” Yet, all customers are left with is hatred towards the company for the defective back over prevention system and malfunctioning electrical system.

Problems with Back Over Prevention System

As an EV claiming to have all of the latest safety equipment included, the Taycan sure does let customers down.

Here’s one important complaint left with the NHTSA. “The backup camera in the Taycan is very difficult to use. The view is not clear and very distorted making it hard to judge distances.”

It seems that Porsche can’t get any of the safety systems working as they should. Service Bulletin #2108.1 states that there could be intermittent warnings when using lane change assist technology. It also seems that these warnings combine with ECU fault codes. However, Porsche doesn’t have a resolution for the matter. Instead, the company says, “Porsche is working to root cause this issue. We will make more information available when possible.” What are customers supposed to do in the meantime? This surely isn’t the “electric driving experience” that owners were expecting when they shelled out their life savings to get behind the wheel.

Problems with the Electrical System

It turns out that the entire electrical system is in just as bad shape. Customers are taking to the internet to complain about all of the faults.

Here’s another NHTSA post to review. “The contact owns a 2022 Porsche Taycan. The contact stated that the vehicle was fully charged however, after three days of inactivity the battery drained. The contact contacted the dealer who had not officially diagnosed the vehicle. The dealer stated that the battery needed to be recharged to transport the vehicle to the dealer. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 150.”

With countless service bulletins related to the electrical system, it’s plain to see that this is the system that malfunctions the most. It seems ironic considering that it is an electric car. Service Bulletin #2105.1 provides another example of how defective the vehicle is, talking about how the SiriusXM antenna is also causing trouble. This is such a basic system that has been perfected a hundred times over on other car brands. Why would Porsche be struggling to get it right? The company is correct that this car is creating “even more intense emotion,” but it’s nothing to brag about.
