2005 Porsche Cayenne Turbo AWD 4dr SUV (4.5L 8cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

This is my first Porsche. I bought a 2 year old Turbo for about half the new price. All I can say is that it has been fantastic and the higher running costs should be more than offset by the fact that it has taken most of its depreciation!


Best Features

My right foot and the gas pedal!

2005 Porsche Cayenne S AWD 4dr SUV (4.5L 8cyl 6A)


Review

This is a really fun vehicle to drive. It is solid and reliable to own. My dealer and Porsche have been very responsive to any problems. It eats gas except for at highway speeds though.


Best Features

Love to drive it.


Worst Features

Porsche should offer maintenance in the price of the vehicle.

2005 Porsche Cayenne AWD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This is the best car I have ever owned in my life for the purpose that I use it for. It is an SUV and it still offers all of the features of Porsche!


Best Features

The handling, room, looks, appointments, and how it is so fun to drive.


Worst Features

Give it more horsepower (If that's legal).

2005 Porsche Cayenne Tiptronic AWD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Review

My 1995 Porsche Cayenne has excellent quality throughout. It is fun to drive, but go easy on the gas pedal - this thing drinks like a fish! If you can set the 16 MPG aside, you will fall in love with the Porsche Cayenne.


Best Features

The GPS, 19 inch sport wheels, and the tow package make the Porsche Cayenne an impressive SUV.


Worst Features

With a growing family, we are beginning to realize that a larger SUV would better suit our needs.

2005 Porsche Cayenne Turbo AWD 4dr SUV (4.5L 8cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

The Porsche Cayenne Turbo is the ultimate "utility" vehicle, being extremely capable on the road, offering good performance off-road, a good towing capacity of 7,700 lbs., and feeling good doing it all. Nothing else really compares to it. If you are not planning on taking advantage of this superb technology, I would suggest getting a BMW X5, Lexus RX350, or an Audi Q7. Most SUV owners never tow or take the vehicle off road, so save your money and shop elsewhere. Also, the Cayenne Turbo is equipped with high performance, soft Pirelli tires that wear quickly...something the customer needs to understand.


Best Features

The adjustable ride height (allows better driving on the highway at 2nd lowest setting and off road with highest setting), acceleration, and handling (almost sports car like, feels very high quality).


Worst Features

A touch screen nav system would be an improvement over ALL those buttons. Also, this really should be considered a mid-size SUV. If you are carrying more than three people, I would consider a larger SUV or one with a 3rd seat.
