Servicing

Since ceasing to have our Cayenne serviced by Porsche "Technicians" instead having it carried out at the local Goodyear agency we have experienced very few problems, apart from occasionally having the onboard computer reset[ as accurately predicted by the Dogs & Lemons publication] Show details

Excellent 4WD with some caveats

So my car is the original model 2004 cayenne turbo. AMAZING performance for an old, heavy 4WD, bu massive fuel consumption of 18-20L/100km is the penalty. The plastic coolant pipes to the turbos burst, and this cost several thousand to rectify at a mechanic. Other issues I've been able to fix myself, like failing rear hatch struts, leaking coolant expansion tank, and a centre bearing support. Japanese/koreans cars are definitely more reliable, however I still feel this old monster is a great drive. Show details

Stick with Japanese

Family Transport ,approx. 2 days per week.Log Book servicing 12 monthly.
Since my last review the electronic hand brake seized & needed replacing,& the we had 4th EGR module replaced at great expense, all this on a car with fewer than 100,000 km on the clock.The 2nd & 3rd EGR were begrudgingly replaced by Porsche, who had to rely on Audi for repair information.
Shouldn't take much longer to run it into the ground & may even consider a Korean vehicle to get something reliable! Show details

Lives up to its badge

I have the Cayenne S Diesel and it is an epiphany of motoring pleasure. The size is generous, the luxury and comfort outstanding, the handling and performance as you'd expect from Porsche engineered in the form of an economical (all things relative) SUV. Show details

The best car I have ever purchased

The experience you get while driving a cayenne is unmatched by any car, just having the porsche logo on your steering wheel makes you feel pride with your purchase. The cayenne requires bare minimum maintenance and is built to last. It has the best features such as PCM (porsche communication management), clearest reverse camera, Led lights all over the car, tiptronic gear change, Aux Bluetooth, Touch screen management and many more!

Best car ever

My Turbo is so nice to drive compared to 911SC i had for 9 yrs. Cayenne Turbo has smooth power delivery just hold on tight. Everything just works & beautifully finished, love love love it.

Only one problem is 21in wheels & low profile tyres don't like gutters ( ouch ) expensive tyres.

I drove the GTS before the Turbo - BUY a Turbo worlds apart a true Porsche performance.

Press Sport switch and melt into your seat with the purrfect exhaust note & enhanced tuning & lowered suspension.

Extremely amazing car

The driving experience for this porsche is amazing it has incredible acceleration, not very noisy and very easy to handle while driving especially the reverse camera is very useful the best part about the interior is you get a small map on the dashboard and then all the cabin controls i.e, A.C, music, bluetooth etc. are very easy to use. It isn't very expensive to run and does not require very much maintenance

Great car

Great car considering the price tag. The handling is great and drives well in urban areas. The seats are very comfortable, and is very spacious as the back. There has been no major issues with the car for the past 5+ years whenever it has been brought to the porsche dealership for service.

Hi all,
I’m seriously considering purchasing an 07-08 Porsche Cayenne, but have no experience with a vehicle of this age. Could anyone advise me of any pitfalls of buying a car if this caliber and age please?

Hi Mork, I’ll take all that onboard. Wasn’t really after a diesel either
Got my eye on 2007 S 9PA within my price range. 127,000 kms. Don’t suppose you have any advise on these models??
Thanks Mork, much appreciated.
Regards, Tony

Plastic coolant pipes 03-06 V8. In Australia, under 100k (miles) I’ve experienced catastrophic failure. I’ve sourced and purchased a replacement engine (complete). Is there any dealer goodwill or actual claim process for this. Any information greatly appreciated
