Wish Porsche Got it Right, Rev. Blindly

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


Although my Cayenne is sporty and zippy when necessary, Porsche has got some configuring to do. For starters, it is SMALL!!! Be prepared if you have kids, this is not the truck for you. There is little space to bring a SINGLE stroller along let alone anything else, groceries are impossible. The truck is a bit of a dog! Yes, you can pretend to drive it in manual but the fact is the truck doesn't have the sack you'd think it would have by its appearance... very disappointing!!! Lastly, but most importantly, reversing, this SUV is a nightmare. Visibility is nil... like reversing blind folded ! If you've got a car seat directly behind the driver's side, forget visibility altogether.

Best Features

Love how this truck handles. It's great in the snow and in icy conditions, a major plus for those in the Northeast etc. It's easy to handle. Great on gas for what you get, Drives smoothly, handles bumps like nothing of its class, and is fun to drive. Parking's a snap! I like it, not love it!

Worst Features

Make the back window wider, make sure tall people can see over the head rest especially in reverse. Give it a little more sack, As for "trip. manual, pick one place, the steering wheel leads to accidental shifting. The headrests are too tall! I am 5'9' and can't see over the headrests!
