#291 of 321 Considering a 2006 Cayman S
Jul 22, 2009 (10:18 am)
It has been a goal of mine to purchase a porsche. I have finally gotten to the point in my life that I can afford the luxury of another part time vehicle. I am writing for opinion as well as:
What would be the appropriate cost?
What options should I not be able to live without?
do i purchase via aucton, dealer( Certified), or third party?
Is there going to be a major repair cost certian mileage on this vehicle?
Thank you in advance for your consideration.

There are many resources here to help you find out pricing, but then to get actual pricing that dealers are giving to buyers you probably need to visit an internet forum. If you search you might find one called Planet Porsche that will have many examples of what people are paying, where they are getting their Porsches from and even what they cost to repair.
I know that 2006 Cayman S's can be had in the 30's now.

It will carry the clubs, but one of the bags has to be put on the back shelf behind the seats. The drivers have to be carried out of the bags, but after all of this, the answer is that it will fit. I advise sitting in one and trying it on for size. They are very comfortable seats. I have the optional all leather interior with electric seats.

I thought that the synthetic oil that you buy is not the same one that Porsche officially recommends and is used by the authorized Porsche service dealerships?

What a great sports car! I found this video that really shows the handling and speed of the Cayman S. This guy is filmed using two cameras and it's like you're inside of the car while watching the movie.

I feel sorry to hear your experience on how Sonnen Porsche treats you. Again, I want to express my sympathy to you & your family on this horrible event. I own a 08' Cayman S. It is still under new car warranty. My local dealer is Stevens Creek Porsche. I have mixing experience dealing with them in the past. The technicians there were great. However, the management left me with much to desire. I have written many threads in Edmond Forum on my issues with Stevens Creek Porsche in fixing recurring cabin noises.
However, what I experienced is in no way comparing to what you are going through. I know that in the last 2-3 years, many high-end car dealers, such as Porsche, were going through tremendous financial difficulty. You can tell by just looking at their left-over inventory from last year. Also, Stevens Creek Porsche closed its Saturday’s service due to lack of business. Your story is especially disturbing for me since I own a Cayman and Sonnen is a an authorized Porsche dealer in Bay Area. I can't imagine if Stevens Creek Porsche would pull the same tactic when my Cayman is out of warranty.
The only suggestion I have for you other than legal action would be to file complaint to BBB (Better Business Bureau) if Sonnen is a member of it. Even that, my experience with BBB's arbitration is that it is somewhat biased towards the business.

I want to thank you for you kindness and understanding. And I am also sorry if my review has caused distress. I am from San Diego and I take my car to Pioneer Porsche. The service department at Pioneer treats me like I am somebody. I never had any issues with Pioneer Porsche.
I have contacted BBB, BAR and California State Licensing Board for car dealership licensure. If nothing is resolved through the above organization, then my next step will be to hire a attorney and go at Sonnen Porsche/Sonnen Motors for un-specified damages, including re-habitation of my daughter. I am sure there are a handful of good attorneys with trial experience.
