Have 45 K miles on my 2016 Porsche Cayenne. Completely pleased. Check up's tend to be more expensive than other cars but this car is worth every penny. Built like a tank, it is the Swiss Army Knife of vehicles. I tow several boats with it, drive in dirt fields, and fly down the interstate. LED headlights are some of the best I have seen and it drives like a sports car with confident handling.
I have had this vehicle for almost a year now coming from a bigger and somewhat slower SUV ( Full-Size Range Rover) this Porsche is a performance vehicle and once you step on the gas you feel it. The breaking system is unbelievable precise (also very expensive to replace via the dealer) the infotainment and interior design is that of airplane if your familiar Porsche then its pretty easy if not it could get confusing. Sometimes I wish the in dash screen could be a little bigger. For the size of the Cayenne the trunk space is kind of disappointing barely can hold anything . I was so use to my range rover being a rough off road vehicle so nyc potholes didnt really bother as the air suspension would absorb the bulk of it in the Porsche the suspension is more tuned for performance so I feel more of the road while driving.The handling on this vehicle decent its not better than BMW around corners but does a good job All in all its a great performance SUV for a good price just a little pricey on maintenance if I were to do it all over again I probably would go up a model to the S or GTS thats just the inner speed demon in me though
We repaired a 2016 Porsche that was purchased in the fall of 2015. This car has so many design flaws that a light hit to the rear end and the car should be totaled. It's engineering is so poor that they put the battery under the seat and access to exhaust required too much labor to include removal of a body panel. The seat just from a mediocre accident caused the rear passenger seats bolt that secures them to the floor break. Mind you the airbags did not even go off in this accident. That same tap to the rear caused a total of 4700.00 worth of mechanical damage due to the horror story of engineering. Take a pass on buying this it is going to be a Fix or Repair Daily vehicle. Being in the VW family should we have expected anything less?
We bought a base Cayenne loaded with Sport Chrono. Drive the S and could not tell the difference around town and on highways despite the fewer horses. With Porsche, it's about handling and overall performance. The base with Sport Plus and Chrono met our needs despite some less than flattering reviews by "experts" of the base engine/HP. We drove them all, including the Jeep SRT. All I can say is nothing made me smile as much as the Cayenne. Sport Plus and the Sport exhaust is a blast. Gurgles and pops are a welcomed noise for my family who often installs aftermarket cat-backs on our performance cars and trucks. No need here. Porsche engineers got it all right and at a push of a button, it can be as silent as a Mercedes. But, we hit the Sports Plus button upon starting to hear and feel the performance. No regrets not getting the S. while it's faster 0-60 by two seconds, most of us don't stage race daily. On the open road it's no slouch either. We can hold 4th gear to 110 MPH on the track, with 4 more gears to go.
