Review Previous vehicle was a MB GL550. Cayenne obviously much more sporty. Ride on stock 21" wheels/tires pretty stiff, even with diminished tire pressure. I sprang for 19" winter wheels/tires (Blizzaks) and ride much smoother. Acceleration, braking, handling are all insane--hard to believe you're driving a 2.5 ton SUV. What's not to like? Not much. Rear visibility stinks (but Lane Change Assist is nice). Ambient interior lighting OK for city but need to turn off on lonely highway at night. Seat memory function on key kind of finicky--need to insert key, wait for seat to adjust, then start, otherwise seat will stop adjusting when you turn ignition. Girlfriend complains about difficulty getting out but when I help her exit I get a nice view, and get to act like a gentleman in the process. Fuel economy stinks, if it's anything like the GL550, it's gonna eat tires every 20K or so and I'm sure repair bills will be breathtaking. If you get a Porsche and then complain about things like that, well, might be time to trade it in. Update: Took a 2000 mile road trip and performed well. Nice cruiser when suspension set to "comfort" mode. On a long highway cruise with speedo set @ 78mph, got 22 MPG. Could use more storage/cupholders in the center console and less switches. Some of the metallic trim on the dash, vent covers, etc. can reflect sunlight and be irritating. Wish the sun visor extended so that when it's moved to cover the driver side window there wasn't a 2" gap that the sun *always* seems to find. Minor issues but other manufacturers have figured out ergonomics.
