Great SUV with ONE major flaw...
By jfcpamba on


2008 Porsche Cayenne S 4dr SUV AWD (4.8L 8cyl 6A)


I bought a used Cayenned S with 50k miles on it.
It is a great vehicle as most of the reviewers have noted.
However, there is one major flaw which no one has pointed to in their reviews.
The front buckets seats are extremely uncomfortable, probably the worst I've ever sat on.
The middle section is only about 16" wide and go up sharply from there to provide support, but it is extremely firm.
My bottom side and hamstrings are literally sore after driving for an extended period of time.
I am now driving with a pillow.
A quick note, I am averaging about 15 MPG in mixed driving and the vehilce is solid.
No other complaints other than those seats.
C'mon Porsche, you can do better!

Best Features

No surprise, the engine and handling. By far the best features. Also fit and finish on materials are outstanding.

Worst Features

Get those seats right and I would literally have no complaints. Gas mileage is about what is expected from a AWD V-8.
