Review of the 2005 Porsche Cayenne

  • Awkward-looking but thrilling behind the wheel, the Cayenne is a thoroughly capable vehicle that makes good on its Porsche nameplate.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Sports car performance, available adjustable ride height and suspension damping control, solid off-road capability and towing capacity, slightly more cargo room than a Range Rover.

  • Cons

    Can't match the Rover in the dirt, annoying turbo lag on top end model, you have to pay a little extra for the name.

  • What's New for 2005

    The base Cayenne receives a six-speed manual transmission and Porsche's Drive-Off Assistant System, otherwise known as a "hill-holder"…

Loved this car for 4

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Porsche Cayenne S AWD 4dr SUV (4.5L 8cyl 6A)

I absolutely loved everything about my Cayenne GTS and have been thrilled with it, until this weekend. On a ski trip to Mammoth from LA the transmission has gotten stuck in low range. It wont move up to give me a limited differential and it wont move down to road mode. If I try the 307 mile journey home I have to do it at 50mph. I googled the issue and now find that its a common problem. Porsche roadside assistance is coming tomorrow to get it but wont tow it back to LA only to Fresno. Porsche have totally let ,me down.




Dont buy

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Porsche Cayenne Tiptronic AWD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)

This is one of the WORST vehicles out there do not buy, high price maintenence, broke down in 3 years, oil changes are expensive $1200 + Drive line broke down another $1500 and finally if I want to keep it I have to replace the whole engine after Only Six(6) years or 125000miles for $9346 for a high quality suv please give me a brake Porsche.




Road warrior

Vehicle: 2005 Porsche Cayenne S AWD 4dr SUV (4.5L 8cyl 6A)

This car is a road warrior. I have over 100k miles on it and it still runs like it is brand new. It loves the open road, I once drove across Nevada non stop doing well over a 100 mph and felt comfortable, stable and safe. Will buy another one when this one wears out, could be a while.

I recently looked into picking up a 2004 Porsche Cayenne S. Found a bunch of great deals out there for ~10k. Then, I started looking into buying an extended warranty....


I am looking to buy a 2005 Cayenne V6 or S in the Boston area...thought I'd start this thread to see what prices are being paid and also to find out who are the best dealers service-wise in the Boston...

Strangely enough (to me) the volume and profit star for Porsche is the Cayenne series....
