Porsche is recalling more than 20,000 of its Cayenne SUVs due to a headlight problem.

The affected models are from 2011 and 2012.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Porsche is recalling more than 100,000 of its Cayenne SUVs worldwide due to a headlight problem.

The issue affects Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne S Hybrid and Cayenne Turbo Vehicles from model years 2011 and 2012, according to a recall alert posted Friday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The headlights on these vehicles may become loose and detach from their housings.

A Porsche spokesman said 22,099 vehicles in the U.S. and Canada and 101,953 worldwide are affected by the problem.

Porsche plans to notify affected owners, and dealerships will fix the problem for no charge. The company said in documents submitted to NHTSA earlier this month that it was not aware of any injuries or crashes associated with the problem.

For more information, car owners can contact NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or visit www.safecar.gov. They can also contact Porsche at 1-800-767-7243. To top of page
