Not what I thought it would be
By European Car Fan on


2008 Porsche Cayenne Tiptronic 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Right off the bat the car had a puttering sound coming from the rear passenger side. Turns out that it is normal on the 2008 but not on previous models and is caused by the fuel pump. I had to have two areas of horrible paint runs wet sanded off of the back of the car. Also, had to have the entire roof wet sanded due to flaws left in the clear coat by the protective wrap. I get a great deal of road noise and in cabin noise caused by creaking back seats and various rattles. Excessive air noise coming in front passenger window as well. When you press against lower inside window it stops. Dealer says normal.

Best Features

The outside of the car looks great. Very stylish. I was attracted to the Porsche name.

Worst Features

Definitely improve the cabin noise issues. Way too expensive for what you get.
