#2028 of 2037 Buying used Cayenne??
May 28, 2010 (9:02 pm)
I am looking to buy a 06 or 08 used Cayenne, for those of you out there with over 30,000 miles on a Cayenne would you feel comfortable buying one ( with over 30,000 miles) knowing what you know after driving and maintaining this vehicle?
Thanks for your insight.

I have a V6 version and am pretty happy with it. However, if you are getting a V8 be sure the coolant pipes have been replaced. The originals were plastic and the update to the new metal pipes can be expensive.

#2034 of 2037 Towing with the Cayenne
Apr 15, 2012 (8:24 am)
I'm wondering if anyone who owns a Cayenne has tried towing with it.
Our friends, with whom we partnered on a 4000lb travel trailer, towed the trailer to Pismo Beach, CA, a mostly flat drive, for a weekend, and on the way home, the transmission seemed to fail.
It would not engage in either forward or reverse. After two hours on the side of the road awaiting the arrival of a family member, the car engaged in forward and reverse and was driven home without the trailer in tow (the family member had brought another vehicle with which to tow) and was driven home without incident. The Porsche mechanic is stumped.
My thinking is that the transmission has a temperature sensor that sensed high fluid temp and shut the transmission down. A dedicated transmission cooler might help.

There are several Porsche racers who use a Cayenne to tow a trailer with their 911 on it. I know of one personally who tows his GT3 that way, and I've heard of many other similar instances.

"Few car companies do as much to maintain interest in their lineup as Porsche, and the Turbo S is yet another example. Plain ol' Turbo seem like yesterday's news? How about a few extra horsepower and a new badge?"

Yes, we had the same problem on 2006 Cayenne and dealer and Porsche USA would not do anything. There are over 3,000 complaints and NY Attorney General told me to take them to small claims court after they contacted them. Simple answer is do not give them business again. They do not stand behind their product and refuse to recall after over 3,000 people recorded the same problem. It is a manufacture defect that they refuse to admit.
