2006 Porsche Cayenne Tiptronic 4dr SUV AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I've owned this car for ten years and could go for another ten except for I'm wanting to go electric. Just ordered my new TeslaX. I've never enjoyed driving more or felt safer than in my Porsche.

2006 Porsche Cayenne Tiptronic 4dr SUV AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Review

We love ours. It runs like a champ and has that sophisticated look that one comes to expect from Porsche. We especially love how quiet it runs and the steering. We had a BMW X5 before, but this SUV is much more elegant, comfortable, stable and attractive.

Asked to update this review 4/21/2016...Still love this car!

2006 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S 4dr SUV AWD (4.5L 8cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

This 2006 replaced my 2004 turbo.
Strangely, it is not as peppy in that the tranny does not adapt quickly enough for your spirited driving mood. This prompted me to put it on an all wheel Dino and it is putting out on the first pull but suffers from heat sink on the second and third pull. My 2004 lost the heating pipes and the Cardon shaft along the way to 100,000 miles where it loss the fuel pumps. During that span I did two brake jobs, replacing rotors both times. My 2006 six had 60,000 when I bought it and after 20.000, I have had zero repair cost.


Best Features

The best thing about this car is I feel the safety of a 5300 lbs of a tank that performs like a super car. There is no situation in any driving condition that this car will not get me through with little to no effort. Just point it and mash the pedal, rain or shine and hold on.


Worst Features

A launch mode would have been nice where the car takes off in first gear but given the weakness and wear characteristics of the Cardon Shaft I would say that they are protecting the weak link in the drive train.

Vehicle

2006 Porsche Cayenne S 4dr SUV AWD (4.5L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I bought my 2006 CPO in 2010 and love it.
It has been incredibly reliable and it drives like a sports sedan.
It is the perfect size-plenty of room but I don't feel like I'm driving a bus.
It is incredibly responsive, great acceleration and power and true 4wd.


Best Features

Panoramic roof; off-road ability; speed.


Worst Features

The only down side is gas mileage.
