I traded in my Mercedes ML430 for the Porsche Cayenne S. Where I live I need 4 wheel drive and plenty of power, hence the 8 cylinders.
PROS: This vehicle is very well made. The small details are covered and the workmanship shows at every point. I have Toyota Camry as well and it pales in comparison. The vehicle has plenty of power, you hit the gas and it goes, simple as that. You sit very high up and get a clean view of the road. The engine is a work of art. I am 6'4" and have plenty of headroom inside the vehicle. The gas tank is larger than expected. The front of the vehicle has a cover under the front bumper to protect the underside from rocks or other road issues.
CONS: The storage area in the trunk/boot is rather small compared to the Mercedes or most SUVs. Expect 12mpg around town and 15mpg on the freeways. You need to read the book to figure out the electronic locks.
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.

I love my new Porsche Cayenne. I like driving this SUV as I feel proud having this in my name. Only problem is expensive and low mileage. Hope this Porsche company will not get financial problems like Volvo or Saab.
We want Porsche totally MADE IN GERMANY or USA.
