Review

I bought the car used with 9,500 miles
on it. Thought buying through a dealer
was the right thing to do. <B>WRONG!!!
</b> 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
<u>never</u> recommend them to
anyone.<p><b>BUYER BEWARE</b>


Best Features

Braking and acceleration, although it could be faster.


Worst Features

Mandated dealer check-ups. Enforce courtesy. Repair KNOWN defects (eg. transmission fork).
