#1586 of 2038 Cayenne throttle hesitation problem?
Jul 12, 2005 (4:19 pm)
I purchased a 2004 Cayenne S, Titanium / Grey car two months ago and am wondering if any of you have the same problem that I do with my vehicle. First of all I noticed this same problem on the 2005 I test drove before I purchased the 2004 from the Porsche dealer but did not think it was anything at the time. I have noticed that from time to time while accelerating especially quickly after coming to a complete stop or turning a corner the car stalls for a brief second or two before accelerating. It is a helpless feeling as I do not know if the engine has stalled or the transmission cannot find the gear or a vapor lock. I usually have to work the throttle back for it to engage and accelerate again. If I do not do this the engine will engage after its delay at whatever foot throttle position I have so it can really get your attention when it does accelerate with a snapping engagement. I had it serviced for this but it is still there, not all the time but it definetly keeps me apprehensive about trying to cross a busy street where timing can be critical.
Any feedback would be appreciated

it's normal, nothing wrong with your car, i have a 04 Cay S also, it's the same, the reason why this happen is b/c the car is drive by wire, which means it
is drive by the computer and the computer automatic detect how much you step on the gas pedal then it will decide it either downshift 1 gear or 2 gear(delay time can be 1 second or 2 second, depend on how much you step on the gas pedal), and if you dont want to wait for the cpu automatic downshift that's where the tiptronic comes in. Porsche is not very good at making an automatic Trany(because on racing car who drive an automatic, either stick or F1 trans)also the MPG is not so great is also because the automatic trany is not well designed for every day drive(you can feel the drag when your let go the gas pedal). it's made for the performance if you downshift yourself,

#1589 of 2038 Roof Rails and Roof Boxes
Jul 14, 2005 (2:49 am)
Does anyone have experience with these with their Cayenne. Was thinking of buying these given the amount of storage in the Cayenne. Are they of good quality? Useful? Easy to use?
I'd appreciate any thoughts.

I purchased thru ebay a pair of Porsche OEM roof rack lockable transport system for my Cayenne, I like these because you can remove them if you wnat as well as adjust them on the Cay as well, they look great! I slide them to the back when not in use, looks like a spoiler. e bay usually has new or used on their Cayenne site for $300 or so which is $140 less than suggested retail.
#1591 of 2038 Does anyone have a Cayenne with a Pre-heater and how do you like it
Jul 14, 2005 (9:44 am)
In 2004 the Cayenne came out with a new feature called a Pre-heater (or Parking Heater). This system allows the owner to preset a time when the vehicles independent heating system comes on and heats the interior and defrosts the windshield. This feature was taken off the market because of homologation issues and is now coming back and I would like to understand if people who have the feature have used it and what is your opinion. This feature is very environmental friendly since it heats the vehicle with the "engine-off" and uses 8 times less fuel than remote start, and produces 1% of the emissions of remote start. Your feedback will be appreciated.

#1595 of 2038 Non Existant Sport Seats
Jul 14, 2005 (6:44 pm)
rfk, I was also very much interested in sport seats (although not at all interested in some of the other options that Porsche loads you up with) but never could find a Cay with any to sit in. The sales guys just told me that they were snug but they never had seen any. I'd love to see a dealer with some Cajones bring in say a V6 with sport seats, stick shift and maybe a sunroof. The thing would sell in a weekend. But, although offerred, I've never seen stick shifts and sport seats.
In contrast, one can find lots of X5s running around with the sports package and the optional sports seats.
