I purchased the Cayenne after owning
two Landrover Discos. The second one
was a complete lemon (blown engine, 3
wiring harnesses, constant wind noise
in the windshield that no one could
find the cause of). I traded it in for
the Porsche and have found that you can
have it all. It drives like a sports
car with all the room and space of an
SUV. Actually look forward to my
commute to and from work. All in all,
I'm very satisfied with the build and
performance of the Cayenne.
The handling on the vehicle at high
speeds around curves is outstanding.
My wife has the BMW X-5 and my car
outperforms hers in everythig. The
navigation systems is also better than
what I expected. I compared mine to
the one the Mercedez 500 SL
convertible and the Cadillac Escalade
have, and it's much better (my co-
workers have the two other vehicles).
The additional lighting when you make
turns is also awsome. Parking assist
is super as well. There is nothing to
complain about in regards to this car.
TIPTRONIC SHIFTING ON THE STEERING
WHEEL AS WELL AS THE SHIFTER
Extremely fun to drive on the highway,
but sometimes has trouble getting going
in the morning. Doors and trunk have
to be slammed shut to get the proper
seal. Remote only works 2" from the
door. Have had several electrical
problems. No back seat leg room.
It goes fast, fast! Love the
triptronic. If you like to be
comlimented on your car, buy this one.
Needs to be more comfortable for my to
buy another one.
Excellent Vehicle to drive for fun.
Not for your average Family SUV. This
is a high performance SUV that takes
off, stops on a dime, corners like no
other SUV, and totally engrosses every
one of your senses. Gas mileage is
terrible, but if you can afford the
turbo, gas mileage cannot be an issue,
since range is excellent at over 550
miles. Everyone I know who owns one
of these rockets is in love with it,
including men and women.
Stereo System; Automatic Air
Suspension; Takes off faster than the
Space Shuttle; It's love at first and
second sight. Passing lane was meant
for the Cayenne Twin Turbo, and you
will believe it when you press the
pedal to the metal. Every eye is on
you when you pass them by(e).
The 20 inch Continental 275-40 20's
are terrible and cause significant
vibrations at all speeds above 62mph.
Attempts at balancing were failures.
New Conti's put on and still
vibrations. Porsche authorized new
michelins' and vibration problems
Just purchased a Cayene S 3weeks ago.It
has been back to the dealer for service
3 times. The entire steering system is
Other than huge factory defects the car
is great. If you buy this car get a
letter in writing from your dealer that
they will pick up your car and give you
another Porsche as a loaner! I have
been given a Pontiac and am not very
happy that it seems that I have spent
$80,000 on a Grand Prix. Luckily I can
ride a bike to work!
