I think the cayenne can't keep the 2nd generation until 2012 impossible til 2013 with new generation of toyotas lexus suv and bm x6 is and many more coming, cayenne need a 3rd generation by 2011.no later than that.. (IMO)and (MDX)?what does it mean? I was never a fan of suv or porsche,but when the cayenne came it change my thinking now i only like the suv they're the best and still i dont like any porsche except their suv,

Try Yokohama Advan ST's. The Michelins do not last more than 10K-12K miles period! I have had the Advan's on for 16 months, 15K miles and still have 1/2 of the tread left. Great tire, handles well, you'll notice no difference
#1899 of 2037 Average annual maintenance cost
Mar 15, 2007 (8:31 pm)
Just curious, I haven't had my CPO Cayenne S in for service yet, but have heard varying costs for the annual service. I have heard as low as $400 (in the Car and Driver Long Term Wrapup), and as high as $1000. Thankfully they did the 20k mile service before I purchased the car (it came with 22k), just wondering what it'll be every year. Thanks! (By the way, still in love with our Cayenne S!)

I just had the two service done (had 12,000) miles on my 2005 Cayenne S. The charge was $740 in Honolulu, Hawaii.
If you look at the owners manual, depending on the miles or number of years between service, they have a minor and major maintenance.
When I had service done after one year (even though it was not required) I paid $350.
Hope this helps.

Thanks! And I always thought things were MORE expensive in Hawaii. Glad they weren't too out of range for you there.

Well, I can tell you that I do have an '04 Touareg...bought used in December. I got to 60k mi+ and the transmission line developed a hole in it from rubbing against the vehicle frame??? VW refused to take any responsibility for the poor design and placement of this line. I am now looking at a $1200 repair on a car I have owned for 2 mos. Please let me know if anyone else has had this problem because VW claims until they see alot more of this problem that they will not consider it to be a problem that needs to be addressed!

Is this a Certified Pre-Owned Touareg???

$1200 to replace a hose???
did the leak cause damage to the tranny? Or is it in a location that requires they remove the whole transmission to get at it?
Then again, considering people are talking about $750 services on the Cayenne, maybe $1200 for a repair isn't all that out of line.(?)

Saw many cayenne these days the new 1, the thing i notice is that, the cayenne and and the S u can see the difference with the exhaust, but in the turbo hard to notice its the new turbo, when u see the front then u know its the new 1, i think porsche hasn't done enough changes for the new cayenne it doesn't deserve to be a next generation cayenne for the people us who like the cayenne porsche just wants to make more money with a soooo slightly minor differnece for the outside of the car,just the front is a bit different, i don't think we deserve such a minor change they could have done a lot they just want to keep that for the 3rd generation,

While comestically it appears to have minor changes, I would like to think if you are buying a Porsche SUV, then then performance and handling is a major consideration.
I have not driven the the new Porsche, but, based on the information you have more horse power and better stability... and I am sure our refinements for performance and handling.
Just my opinion.
