    911 S Cab. Considering a Cayenne V6 6-speed manual as a replacement for our MDX.

    A few friendly suggestions: In the future, try posting your questions in a single post. Second, use real words if you want a real response. The "any1 out there? can u help me?" approach tends to sound immature. Third, if you are seriously interested and capable of buying a Cayenne, go to a dealership for a test drive. It's nice to get other people's opinions, but don't count on them over your own.

    I would have thought most 17+/- year olds were not in the Porsche/Cayenne market - at least not unless they were a trust fund baby or choking on a silver spoon. But I just heard from a friend whose niece (high school junior) has made a small fortune with a web based business venture she started two years ago and is buying a Cayman S with her own money. After she gave both of her parents and uncle $55,000 each to pre-fund her 529 college accounts. :surprise:

    So I'll give you the benefit of the doubt, even though my suspiscion is that you aren't her business partner. ;)

    I am in the market for either Cayenne S or the new X5. I like the idea of Cayenne V6 manual but it will be for the wife and I tried and failed to teach her how to drive a stick shift. Cayenne S is very much on our minds and althogh we wouldn't mind the turbo, the price difference was too big and the S is plenty fast. As a matter of fact the new V6 is faster then our current Lexus GX470.

    Hi, habitat what kind of cayenne do u own?i own a toyota avalon v6.well its my dad's car but he got a new land cruiser so now i use the avalon .and i also own a brand new toyota yaris.well i can't buy a cayenne rite now, but i think i can buy it in the next 2 years.hope so but if i could buy it then i will wait for the3rd generation,and the main reason that i like the cayenne is my cousin owns 1cayenne turbo 03model he bought it brand new.

    davidc i advice u look at both the cayenne and x5,but also take a look at the mercedes gl 450,its a great car.

    guys, do u guys know which is the best handling suv, mercedes bmw or the cayenne.???
  • ms09ms09 Posts: 112
    When i will buy a suv, i will consider on 3cars. mercedes suv, bmw suv, and i heard the x6 will come within the next 2years. and the cayenne , hopefully the 3generation.
  • habitat1habitat1 Posts: 4,282
    The new 2nd generation Cayenne just came out as a 2008 model. You won't likely see the 3rd generation before 2012/13.

    IMO, the Cayenne is the best handling SUV by a significant margin, the BMW X5 w/ sport package second, all Mercedes a distant 3rd. I'd put the new MDX ahead of the Mercedes in handling. But the Cayenne is also quite small - no third row and not a lot of cargo capacity - compared to the others.

    I'm fortunate in that my wife WANTS a manual transmission, but probably not enough to justify giving up the versitility and utility of our 2005 MDX for a new Cayenne V6.
  • ms09ms09 Posts: 112
    I think the cayenne can't keep the 2nd generation until 2012 impossible til 2013 with new generation of toyotas lexus suv and bm x6 is and many more coming, cayenne need a 3rd generation by later than that.. (IMO)and (MDX)?what does it mean? I was never a fan of suv or porsche,but when the cayenne came it change my thinking now i only like the suv they're the best and still i dont like any porsche except their suv,

    Try Yokohama Advan ST's. The Michelins do not last more than 10K-12K miles period! I have had the Advan's on for 16 months, 15K miles and still have 1/2 of the tread left. Great tire, handles well, you'll notice no difference
  • Just curious, I haven't had my CPO Cayenne S in for service yet, but have heard varying costs for the annual service. I have heard as low as $400 (in the Car and Driver Long Term Wrapup), and as high as $1000. Thankfully they did the 20k mile service before I purchased the car (it came with 22k), just wondering what it'll be every year. Thanks! (By the way, still in love with our Cayenne S!)
  • gyfgyf Posts: 16

    I just had the two service done (had 12,000) miles on my 2005 Cayenne S. The charge was $740 in Honolulu, Hawaii.

    If you look at the owners manual, depending on the miles or number of years between service, they have a minor and major maintenance.

    When I had service done after one year (even though it was not required) I paid $350.

    Hope this helps.
  • Thanks! And I always thought things were MORE expensive in Hawaii. Glad they weren't too out of range for you there.

    Well, I can tell you that I do have an '04 Touareg...bought used in December. I got to 60k mi+ and the transmission line developed a hole in it from rubbing against the vehicle frame??? VW refused to take any responsibility for the poor design and placement of this line. I am now looking at a $1200 repair on a car I have owned for 2 mos. Please let me know if anyone else has had this problem because VW claims until they see alot more of this problem that they will not consider it to be a problem that needs to be addressed!
  • vwguild1vwguild1 Posts: 98
    Is this a Certified Pre-Owned Touareg???
  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 22,680
    $1200 to replace a hose???

    did the leak cause damage to the tranny? Or is it in a location that requires they remove the whole transmission to get at it?

    Then again, considering people are talking about $750 services on the Cayenne, maybe $1200 for a repair isn't all that out of line.(?)

    '17 F150 Crew 2.7; '67 Coronet R/T; '14 Town&Country Limited; '09 LR2 HSE. 44-car history and counting!

    Saw many cayenne these days the new 1, the thing i notice is that, the cayenne and and the S u can see the difference with the exhaust, but in the turbo hard to notice its the new turbo, when u see the front then u know its the new 1, i think porsche hasn't done enough changes for the new cayenne it doesn't deserve to be a next generation cayenne for the people us who like the cayenne porsche just wants to make more money with a soooo slightly minor differnece for the outside of the car,just the front is a bit different, i don't think we deserve such a minor change they could have done a lot they just want to keep that for the 3rd generation,
  • gyfgyf Posts: 16

    While comestically it appears to have minor changes, I would like to think if you are buying a Porsche SUV, then then performance and handling is a major consideration.

    I have not driven the the new Porsche, but, based on the information you have more horse power and better stability... and I am sure our refinements for performance and handling.

    Just my opinion.

    The reason I like European (German, British) high end cars is because they don't look ancient in three years time like so many maunfacturers. Small change is the key to this. My Cayenne will always look like a Cayenne.
  • Agreed. I love my 04 Cayenne S. Its a beautifully designed car, has great looks and great curves. Just because something is the second generation doesnt' necessarily mean it doesn't have to be a complete change. Its more of an "evolution" not a revolution, like many of the car magazines talk about. You obviously have a lot of time before your "third generation" Cayenne comes out....

    If you have a post '04 Cayenne, and you maintain the vehicle by the book, it should not cost all that much.

    The first oil change is at 20K miles. The car uses synthetic oil. There is no reason to change the oil sooner. In fact, all you really need to do is change the oil at 20K miles. If you take the car in, they'll check the fluids, and charge you $740. Why not learn to do it yourself?

    The brakes last a long time on the Cayenne, something on the order of 35K to 40K miles, on par with any car. The real expense comes from replacing the tires at 20K-25K mile intervals. You can do better if you don't run the 20" tires. Other than that, if you can afford the gas, the Cayenne shouldn't break your wallet to run.

    I would like to hear opinions re how well cayenne does in the snow. Considering purchasing Cayenne or Cayenne S.

    "The brakes last a long time on the Cayenne, something on the order of 35K to 40K miles, on par with any car."

    Actually, I have some first hand experience with that one - If you buy any of the v8 Cayennes, then brakes are not an issue - if you buy the v6, then the suspension and brake parts are all from the Touareg, and they have major problems with early wear.

    The rotors and pads on the v6 are all wrong for a vehicle this size.
  • I purchsed my used 04 Cayenne S in December. I am in the DC metro area, and we had maybe 3-4 snow storms. I think the most snow we had at one point was around 4-6 inches or so. Definately took out the car in the snow and it had no problem whatsoever. We also had an ice storm or two, and the Porsche had no problem. I got through some places that trucks had difficulty getting to. Definately passed quite a few stuck sedans in the road as well. From what I've read in Car and Driver, Porsche designed the Cayenne to be a star not only on the asphalt, but also offroad and in less than ideal driving conditions. I definately garnered a lot of respect for the Cayenne this past winter!!!

    Hi. I've been considering on purchasing the new Cayenne Turbo. But, is the 2008 Cayenne Turbo subject to gas-guzzler tax in California?
