Thus far, I am quite pleased with the Cayenne. I have everything I need, good performance, cargo space, navigation/XM radio, and decent fuel mileage at 20 mpg highway. Everywhere I go heads turn and I get plenty of compliments. The car feels solid and has been reliable so far. I definitely would buy another one.
Great All-Around SUV
2009 Porsche CayenneAndy B - Columbus, OH07/25/2015
Handling that greatly exceeds expectations, lots of power on tap, a great blend of luxury and sport, and the versatility to do things like commute, handle weekend getaways, and even tow substantial loads, and to do them all well. And you can get one with a manual transmission! The only downside to this SUV is its poor fuel economy; the S and the Turbo models may be slightly better due to different gearing.
The power and torque are phenomenal. It's a drivers car. You can get a quick 0-60 in sport mode but where the diesel shines is on the highway. You can pull away from just about any car with ease. The Cayenne Diesel pulls with ease and the real worl fuel economy is better than advertised. I got 31.5 Mpg on a 288 mile road trip. Most importantly ! Porsche is giving away the CPO warranty 100,000K or 6yrs whichever comes first because of the diesel scandal. Yes giving it away just go and get your car serviced at the dealer so they can put you in the system. You'll get a letter from Porsche. I don't know how long that will last.
