2005 Porsche Cayenne SUV 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.


Favorite 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 SUV 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 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.


Favorite Features

Power, comfort and performance


Suggested Improvements

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

Review

Ok so i bought this car as a Christmas gift to myself and I have loved it since day one! It's fast sporty and fun to drive. I would have bought the turbo but it has really lag. I have taken the Cayenne off road numerous times and it has held up well. I'm very pleased with this car. Fuel economy is poor but it is a V8 and I'm coming from a V6.


Favorite Features

Active air suspension, The sound system, Sun roof, The engine ;)


Suggested Improvements

Better fuel economy, bigger sunroof, and nothing else
