Review I bought the car used with 9,500 miles on it. Thought buying through a dealer was the right thing to do. WRONG!!! At just over 15k miles, the shift fork for 1 and 2 gear cracked. Called Porsche, wrote letter. They said the original cast fork had a known weakness. They paid the $150 for replacement with a new, updated, forged piece- I got stuck with the $4600 labor and misc. parts bill. This dealer is horrible and I would never recommend them to anyone.
