Porsche Cayenne



  • Nope. Hopefully your car is still under warranty. Both of them don't work? That kind of sucks but you still have the stick ot use to shift up and down. This is an odd one. Good luck!
  • I have a 2005 Cayenne Turbo with 33k miles and about 17 months left on the warranty (50k/4 years). Where would be the best place to buy a 2 year extension. Can you get this from Porsche? I have read their website and there's not a lot of info?? Thanks
  • Porsche does not offer an Extended Warranty...Only the Certified Pre-Owned Warranty...

    Try going on line...several available there...
  • Hi everyone. I just bought an 06 Cayenne base (with just about every option), but I'm new to the Porsche family so I had some questions:
    1. Are there any recurring issues with this vehicle that I should know?
    2. Does stability control, Electronic brakeforce disribution and 4 channel brakes come standard (I have the preferred package).
    3. Does the warranty cover wear & tear items or just the traditional bumper-to-bumper mechanical failures? I have the extended certifed pre-owned warranty.
    4. What maintenance is really required and how often should I expect to change the brakes/tires? Additionally, why $200 for an oil change?

    That's it for now. Any help I can get here is greatly appreciated. BTW, isn't really that good. Edmunds forums are very good and I owned several Acura's where acurazine was very good as well. Can anyone recommend a good Porsche forum other than edmunds?

    :D hey mudman

    yes....i am around,,,,but due to work, home , family, etc....i am here less....

    all is well with my cayenne....

    I also got the 100K warranty.

    one quick suggestion.....You can get cheap , inexpensive tires from internet , either on ebay or craigslist... for your cayennes.

    There is a set of 19" wheels and tires for only $300 in dublin, CA.

    I am sure happy that we only need oil changes every 15,000 miles....

    take care...and see you around.... :)

    1- there were some minor issues, but those have been worked out
    2- they should be in your owners manual. Some cars have different options than others. I am not sure about cayenne base.
    3- warranty does NOT cover wear and tear items.
    4- Engine should run with no problems , just simply follow maintenance schedule. You do not need a $200 oil change...
    I buy my oil at Autozone or costco, and go to the local oil changer...whom I know well and they change out everything for me..... I go to my trusted mechanic for some routine checks....and back to dealership for major checks....
  • Thanks Highender for the information. I was not aware that service could be done at places other than the dealer.

    Dows anyone know what can be used cheaply & easily to increase HP on the 06 Cayenne Base?
  • Hello all, new to the group and new to Porsche, need some help please. Just bought a 2004 Cayenne S (Semi Auto). When I start the engine after refilling the petrol, it sort of goes on igniting and then cuts off, it does not start up as normal, but it always starts up on the second try. Am I doing something wrong?? Not sure if warranty will cover.

    Live in England...... Many Thanks

    Well.. I really dont know what is so special about this car.. I got 06 Cayenne base(V6). I got 29600 mi and about to get 30K service done. One of my local porsche dealers told me it will cost me $1400. Is that sound right?? I dont know what kind of stuff they will do on my car.. but still 222222 much..
  • Just purchased this Porsche Cayenne Turbos S. It is a fantastic sport SUV. I have 2 issues...CD Player skips and emergency brake sticks. Does anyone know any other issues with the Turbo S ?

    Also want to install ipod & bluetooth....any suggestions ??

  • bmlexusbmlexus Posts: 755
    Cayenne Turbo S. u really dint consider the new turbo?

    but anyway great car .
  • The 2006 Cayenne Turbo S has better exterior styling vs 2008 Cayenne Turbo in my opinion. I really drilled down both models before deciding to by the Turbo S. Porsche did not produce 2007 model and i think they did not improve the look over the 2006.

    That said there nothing like the ride,power and luxury.....Very limited production of 2006.
  • I have listed the last two post with zero feedback. Has everyone found a new site ??
  • bmlexusbmlexus Posts: 755
    Well i dont think there is anyother site as good as this1 for discussion, thanks for the reply that u gave me after a week.yes ur correct that 2006 had a limited production specially the turbo s. whats the 0to 60 run?

    Regarding your questions abt cd skip and emergency break sticks i dont know but strange for abt a 100k car to have even a minor issue

    Abt ipod & bluetooth im sure u will find a after market .

    by the way how much did u pay for it? and hows the car running?

    Try sending your questions in the Luxury Lounge I am sure u will find ur answers there.
  • Does anyone have any idea what a good deal is on a 2008 Cayenne S? The base price is $57K and goes up with options...the most expensive being the Navigation and the Bose sound system, these two alone add $6K. I looked at one with sticker price of $74K and the salesman hinted at knocking off $5K. I browsing other comments on this site, some have suggested a 10% discount. Is this for real? Has anyone gotten 10% off of a Cayenne S? If not, what do you feel is a good offer if they're asking $74?

    Thanks for your thougts
  • I purchased my 05 CS preowned, so can't be of much use there, but I just bought an 08 Boxster for my mother, had to have it shipped from an outside dealer. Got 7% off. I wasn't going to push for much more off because she had to have a Tiptronic, but you shoudl get ATLEAST 7% off.... it seems no one wants SUVs anymore because of the gas crunch... which should help in your purchase!

    Porsche dealers can vary greatly with respect to their pricing / discounts. When I bought my 911 Cab S in September 2005, all 4 dealers in the DC area offered almost no discounts. It was the new 997 model and even though we were heading into the fall, the Cab version had only been out for 5-6 months. I finally got a PA dealer to agree to a $5k discount on a made to order 2006 model. Was going that route until I found a Baltimore dealer that took 10% (over $10k) off a brand new 2005 (still 997) model sitting in his showroom.

    If I was shopping for a Cayenne S, I would expect to get a 8-10% discount. The new Cayenne GT-S might be a bit tougher on pricing, but my Baltimore area dealer said that if I wait until he clears out his waiting list on that one, I should be at a similar discount. I doubt I'll do it, as all of our extra nickels are going into a building a new house, but the GT-S, with a 6-speed manual transmission, would be absolute nirvana for my wife. Our 2005 MDX is the first automatic transmission vehicle either of us has owned in 30+ years each of driving, and that is it's biggest detriment. According to my dealer, the GT-S 6-speed manual will be more popular (and a better choice) than the Turbo for those that really like to "drive".
  • habitat1-

    Good info for future Porsche dealers for myself....
    Do you do your service for your cars at teh dealer? I am looking for an independent service shop in the DC area, and obviously a reputable one. If you know of any good mechanic, please pass it along!

  • 0-60 4.2....1 of the fastest production car/suv on the road today. What is the luxury lounge? What the difference in terms of this form vs. LL.

    BTW the TURBO S runs fanatastic...smooth and very fast with a very opulent interior.

    I am a fan of the cayenne since 1 of my uncle bought it in 2003 i think as a 2004 model it was the cayenne turbo in black he had some trouble with the car starting from 2007 i think it was in the garage for weeks what trouble i dont know and he sold it 3 months back,

    So i honestly don't trust the reliability for the cayenne and since the new x5 came out and I went to check it out. I like it a lot but there is also some strange kinds of reliablity issue which I read about and the harsh ride with the run flats.

    I do know that the cayenne is very fast even the Cayenne S is faster than the current x5 4.8i v8.

    But i did not know that the turbo S 0to 60 was 4.2 i thought it was something like 4.7sec.?!!!!!!!!!!!!.

    Having never driven a Cayenne, I can't comment on it. Ride quality is something that is so subjective. It has to do with perception. You need to go and drive these trucks yourself. My Dad has an '07 X5 3.0si w/ Sport Package (19" wheels & Runflat Tires) and I think the truck rides too smooth. Ride quality is on par with my Mom's (former) '05 530iA (No Sport Package).

    The Cayenne's reliability has increased steadlity since its firt year teething problems. Two of my customers have them. One customer has an '05 V6 that he bought as a CPO (used) vehicle. He's had it for a little over a year and a half with ZERO issues. Another customer is on his 3rd Turbo. He puts between 40 & 50K on them and dumps them. He absolutely loves the Cayennes.

    Ok. so ur dad x5 with the 19in wheels with run flat and it rides very smooth,dunlop tires? I have read that there is a little noise with the 20in with run flat , and 18in is very smooth as well so i think it very much depends on the tires,and the 18 and 19 r IMO after reading other reviews is better than the 20in.

    So the reliability is definitely getting better

    Another customer on his 3rd turbo thats a guarantee that he loves the cayenne.Never tried the turbo s?

    Whats the 0 to 60 run for the current turbo. and it was a surprise to me after reading that turbo s 0to 60 4.2!!!!!!!!!!!!

    thanks for the short cut steve. ;)
  • has anyone with a Cayenne had any experience putting their preschoolers in the back? The seat does not recline at all. wondering if kids will be comfortable on their booster seats. Any solutions or comments?
  • No problem at all. I have a pre-schooler, and have taken her to school in the Cayenne everyday for over a year.
  • My 4yo loves it..and she is in the 97th %ile for height in her problems at all...especially if you hit the throttle every once in a while ;)
  • Hi Guys and Gals,
    My Khumo tires with about 38,000 miles finally went to the dump. They had about 3-4/32nds still on them, but were becoming noisy due to wear on the inner surfaces. So, on went the OEM tires I took off when the car was delivered. But, I was going to the NAIAS in Detroit last week, so I used the cutting tool used by the dirt trackers and cut grooves in the "summer" tires and they worked extremely well in the Detroit snow. Temps were from about 7 to 20 F and it snowed each day. Incidentally, Porsche was NOT at the auto show. My letter to Mr Schwarzenbauer went out today! :shades:
