2005 Porsche Cayenne Tiptronic AWD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I love driving this car but Porsche should be ashamed of craftsmanship. Everything plastic has broken off, rear door will not stay open and presents hazard, ac and navigation is a joke, and maintaining vehicle even the Porsche repair shop shakes their head about how poorly designed it is. My advice pick another model.

2005 Porsche Cayenne Turbo AWD 4dr SUV (4.5L 8cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

One of the best car I've owned.
BMW X5M or Mercedes ML65 can't come close.
I've been lucky to own all three vehicles at one point in time.
Although X5 and ML63 has more power IMO but when it comes to handling nothing can compare.


Best Features

Handling, handling, and handling. Anybody can punch the gas and go straight but Porsche can make you look like a race car driver.

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


Review

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.

Review

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.

Review

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.


Best Features

Power, comfort and performance


Worst Features

bluetooth for cell, it's probably available on today's models.
