#2005 of 2038 Porsche Certified Preowned charge?
Mar 27, 2009 (9:48 am)
I have owned three Porsches previously, but I have never purchased a Porsche Certified Preowned before. I am looking at a one owner 2005 base Cayenne with 52,000 miles.
I inquired about the warranty, and he said I could have the Porsche Certified Preowned warranty for an additional $2,500. This would be for two years or 100,000 total miles whichever comes first. Is it normal for the dealers to offer this as an option?

I'm a bit confused - if you are looking at a certified Cayenne, it will already be covered to 100,000 miles/6 years from the original purchase date.
Certified Used Vehicle Programs
If the dealer is offering to certify the Cayenne for $2,500, then you can appraise and compare the CPO price to the Dealer Retail used price.
Who knows if this is normal - maybe this dealer wants to keep their sales options open and if they certify it, they won't be able to sell it to someone as a regular used car without eating some of their inspection expenses.
Check out the Porsche Cayenne Prices Paid and Buying Experience discussion for more deal talk.

Thanks for your prompt and detailed advice. I went to the Edmunds used car section, and CPO adds over $3000 to the retail price of this car, so the $2500 fee does not look too bad. I went to the Porsche Cayenne Prices Paid and Buying Experience discussion, and in at least one other case a buyer paid $2500 to get his Cayenne certified by Porsche as part of the purchase agreement.

Sounds like you are close to pulling the trigger. You may want to look over the Used Car Buying Checklist and make sure all the keys and other little minor items are accounted for.
Enjoy the ride.
#2009 of 2038 2005 Porsche Cayenne Purchase
Apr 19, 2009 (2:59 am)
I currently live in Jacksonville, FL and considering purchasing a single-owner 2005 Porsche Cayenne with 47,124 miles on it. I have never owned a Porsche before so I am really looking for insight into the long-term maintenance of a Cayenne and general thoughts on the driving and ownership experiences.
#2010 of 2038 Re: Warrranty for 2005 Turbo [gege7754]

Hi there, I have a 2005 Turbo with 42k miles.
It ws first registered in January 2005 (so I have about five months to decide). I have been quoted $4,000 by my local Porsche dealer for a 2 year/24k miles warranty. Deductible is $250. It covers a lot.
Is this good value? Can anyone recommend a good warranty company?\
How sure are you that something will go wrong with your porsche within the next 2 years? Is it really necessary to spend $4.000 just for the warranty?
I guess German cars are quite expensive to repair. Taking the warranty must be better rather than pay twice or 3 times more later for repairs.
When will there be a redesign cayenne?
#2011 of 2038 Cayenne & garage door opener questions
Jul 19, 2009 (3:34 pm)
For 2 years now I have been on and off trying to get the overhead door opener buttons to pick-up the code off the door opener head unit I cannot do it!!!!
Who can give me the advice on how to program? I have followed the scenarios in the book dozens of times and it never works.... i blank out the buttons and then have tried pushing the rolling code emittance button on the unit head, then jump in the car and push one of the buttons 2, 3 times but it wont pick up the signal. I have also tried pointing the remote inside the car at the overhead console and no luck.
Who has figured this out?
