Maintenance money pit!
By Sacha on


2003 Porsche Cayenne S Tiptronic 4WD 4dr SUV (4.5L 8cyl 6A)


This is a great fast SUV, but that's about it. The fuel mileage is terrible at average of 10 mpg for street driving. The worst part is the cost of maintenance. This has become a money with average $5000 in yearly repairs after 60K miles. Brakes cost $1400 every year. The 60K mile service costs $2500. Things start to break that are not covered by 100k Porsche maintenance warranty at average of $1800. I would stay away from this car unless you like paying Porsche for service.

Look at BMW and Mercedes for service cost of luxury cars. I had a BMW and paid $0 in maintenance.
