2008 Porsche Cayenne S 4dr SUV AWD (4.8L 8cyl 6A)

Review

It just keeps getting better with every mile I drive it. Performance, handling, feel, etc. right up there with what I expect from a Porsche. More sporty than my Audi A6 2.7T. Handling not what the Carrera offers, but a real joy on the corners. Leather is great, PCM so-so, transmission is intuitive. Better than most "luxury sport sedans" I have driven, plus the utility of an SUV. We look forward to every trip, and expect to keep this puppy a long time. Also, high WAF (wife approval factor) so it's not just a guy's car (remember to get the leather interior). Dealer wanted to deal, so buy off the lot if you can, and bring a trade-in. Love the green metallic paint, too!

Favorite Features

Prodigious power, strong brakes, firm ride, great seats, smart tranny, suspension, int. and ext. styling, smart features throughout, nice ergonomics for drivers. Passengers like the car as well. "Sport" mode is too much fun. Great rumbly sound like a Porsche should sound like. Rear hatch closer.

Suggested Improvements

Nav system is fiddly. No bluetooth for phone, idiotic SIM chip system, pass on this option. Non-leather interior is too stark and plain. Mind-numbing option list -- do your homework. You will need floor mats for your floor mats if you get lighter carpets. Get a radar detector, too!
