The 2010 Porsche Panamera is being recalled for an issue with seatbelts.

Reuters reports that the recall of the new sedan will involve all models built to date. The problem? Faulty seatbelt tensioners, which could lead to more severe injury in an accident, or worse.

The new Panamera is one of the highest-rated luxury sedans here at TheCarConnection, but as we point out in our Panamera review, neither the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) nor the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has crash-tested the performance four-door.

Dealers will install a secondary tensioner on the seatbelt systems for both front seats. Owners will be contact by the automaker, or can inquire at 800-545-8039.

More than 11,000 Panameras will be included worldwide in the service action, the news agency adds. The NHTSA bulletin shows 3176 Panameras sold in the U.S. are to be recalled.
