2004 Porsche Cayenne S 8 cylinder from North America
I hate it. Porsche Cayenne = Constant headache
Standard wear and tear... however to the extreme. I have never squealed the tires and have rotated every 5000... but this thing chews through tires and brakes.
The non wear and tear items include a broken wiper support bar, multiple adjustments to the headlight adjustment system, multiple lights being burnt out, latch for rear door broken.
I absolutely hate this vehicle. I picked it up and was excited about having it. The vehicle does perform nicely... much like a car... however the constant things going wrong combined with the arrogance of the dealer has completely ruined the experience of owning a Porsche.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Hi. I bought a 2004 Cayenne S new off the lot. I have enjoyed the car and attest to its durability. I have two boys and dogs who like to put the interior to the test. No complaints. I now have 80,000 miles on my vehicle and have only had to take it in for routine maintenance. I would recommend the car to anyone, and plan to have my oldest son take it over when he gets his license.
I purchased a 2004 Cayenne S used with 140,000 km. I drove the car for 3 years from -40C to 20C; never had an issue. I did have summer and winter tires, but just switched them out on the same rims.
I just had to comment because so many of these are negative. I put this car through 180km a day of gravel roads and mud in the spring, that some 4x4 pickups would get stuck in, and icy roads. I thought it handled amazing, especially cornering at high speeds.
The car had over 240,000km when I collided with a deer. The headlight, bumper, and hood latch were damaged and the insurance company decided to write it off.
For those of you who think the money is all for the Porsche name, you could not be more wrong. This is such an impressive car, I would live in cardboard box before I'd give up driving a Porsche.
