2008 Porsche Cayenne 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6M)

Review

I have owned this since March of 2007. It has been back to the dealer 3 times already and I still have issues with it. Initially there were very bad paint runs on both side of the license plate. These had to be wet sanded off. There is a puttering sound that comes from the rear passenger area. According to dealer and Porsche this is normal and will be found on all 2008 models. It is something to do with the fuel pump. Returned to dealer again when I discovered that the entire hood was covered with "splotches" under the clear coat. Again, wet sanding was done on a brand new car. Definitely should have purchased S model. Acceleration is poor and seems to shift gears sluggish,

Favorite Features

My draw to this car was that I would be able to drive a Porsche year round in all weather. I have a Boxster S that sits in the garage all winter. The car looks sharp. Probably a little bit too much like the VW Touareg though. Probably turn a few more heads driving this than the competiton.

Suggested Improvements

Do something to distinguish it from the VW a little bit more. Cabin noise needs to be addressed. A little quality control when it comes to the paint.
