2011 Porsche Cayenne S 4dr SUV 4WD (4.8L 8cyl 8A)

Review

I have 12,000 miles on this car, drive it mostly as a sedan (no pulling or racing around). The gas milage is terrific (21mpg around town and 23-24 on hwy). the car performs great, very comfortable and has very good breaking.
The problem is that it likes to drink oil.. I have had to put 6 qts of oil in the car so far. > 1qt for every 2K miles. I am not the only one , there are 11 pages on Renslist concerning this issue.
Porche's
24 page service bulletin concerning this problem is also posted. The first 12 basically instruct the dealer to tell the customer
{the manual states up to one quart / 1K miles is within normal limits}. REALLY????
until Porsche fixes this issue Buyer Beware

Best Features

comfort, handling, performs as a sports sedan, braking, nav and stereo system, cooling seats, supportive seats

Worst Features

Porsche must address and fix the oil consumption issue for this engine. 1 qts per 2K miles is unacceptable. They need to stop burying their heads in the sand. Buyer Beware !!!!! could use a little more carco space, however I knew this prior to the purchase
