Allow me the opportunity to badmouth this car. I own one, and I think I can tell you exactly how much I enjoyed buying it.
1) My dealer promised me a Cayenne in January, 2003, two months before the first delivery date of March 15. They forgot the order form, and my car was subsequently never delivered.
2) In early March, they ordered me the car, but one day before scheduled delivery, they called us saying Porsche refused the order. Reason: too many customers (incl. me) ordered cars with carbon fiber pkgs., and Porsche ran out. Yes, they ran out. Even though it is standard on the Turbo.
3) June. I get pissed so we buy a 75k titanium model Cayenne S off the lot. The dealer promises a free 6-CD changer as an apology for all the mishaps. They lose track of that promise for a month till we dig it up in the cars file.
4) The air recirculator pump makes an awful whine CONSTANTLY. Porsche refuses to fix this problem. I am told it CANNOT be fixed. It is insanely loud and comes on when the heater is recirculating.
5)The check engine light turns on all the time, yet it is never properly fixed.
This is not a good car. As a member of a Porsche family who almost refuses to drive anything else, this is a big disappointment. I urge all readers to consider the range Rover of X5 4.8is. They must be better.
