this car loves oil
By sc1982 on


2011 Porsche Cayenne S 4dr SUV 4WD (4.8L 8cyl 8A)


I have 12,000 miles on this car, drive it mostly as a sedan (no pulling or racing around). The gas milage is terrific (21mpg around town and 23-24 on hwy). the car performs great, very comfortable and has very good breaking.
The problem is that it likes to drink oil.. I have had to put 6 qts of oil in the car so far. > 1qt for every 2K miles. I am not the only one , there are 11 pages on Renslist concerning this issue.
24 page service bulletin concerning this problem is also posted. The first 12 basically instruct the dealer to tell the customer
{the manual states up to one quart / 1K miles is within normal limits}. REALLY????
until Porsche fixes this issue Buyer Beware

Best Features

comfort, handling, performs as a sports sedan, braking, nav and stereo system, cooling seats, supportive seats

Worst Features

Porsche must address and fix the oil consumption issue for this engine. 1 qts per 2K miles is unacceptable. They need to stop burying their heads in the sand. Buyer Beware !!!!! could use a little more carco space, however I knew this prior to the purchase
