2015 Porsche Macan: Oil Bottle Holster

August 14, 2014

2015 Porsche Macan

I had a friend that got rid of his Audi A4 because he hated having to top it off with oil.

"I shouldn't have to add oil to a new car!" he said.

I explained that this was normal consumption for the engine, but he wasn't having it. Perhaps he equated it with having an old car with a constant leak.

According to the owner's manual, the 3.6-liter turbo V6 engine in our long-term 2015 Porsche Macan S also requires an occasional oil top off.

Our Macan didn't need any oil at the time of this writing, but I wanted to point out the handy oil bottle holster in the cargo area.

The holster is actually a gift from the dealership and not standard equipment. I was expecting some off-brand oil to be inside, but it looks like Rusnak Westlake Porsche gave us the good stuff. They also included a small funnel and a pair of plastic gloves.

I doubt having a bottle in the back would've changed my friend's mind, but it will certainly make things easier for us.

Would you avoid buying a car that requires frequent topping off?
