Pros

Fast and people notice you in this car. Lots of room for kids in the back and it tows more than a full size pick up.

Cons

Very thirsty and it likes premium to quench it. If in auto it feels like the turbo lag is bad.

Fast & Fun Porsche — I like the adjustable ride height and the interior trim the best for this car over others I looked at in the past. I also like the ambient lighting in the cockpit of the car. I do not like the mileage all the time, but it is still okay considering it weights 5.2K.

Pros

Sports car feel with the room and ability of an SUV.  I've owned a hummer and 4Runner and nothing comes close to the off road ability of a Porsche!

Cons

maintenance is more costly than other cars but the reliability is second to none!

Totally Awesome Suv — This car looks awesome, a real head turner! If you can't afford a new Porsche than this is the car for you! Room enough for 4 and can go anywhere you want. Just took it to Colorado and it handled the snow like a Subaru and looked better doing it. This SUV can beat most sports cars off the line coming home from grocery shopping.

Very Quick, Handles Amazing, Fun Car to Crusie in.

Cons

gas and maintance

The Best Suv Ever — Performance- This car is quick, handling on this car is amazing, brakes lets say 12 piston porsche brakes in the front and 4 piston porshe brakes in the rear, the engine 4.5 Liter Water-Cooled V8, and the horsepower; 340hp at 6000 rpm and 309.8 ft lbs at 2500 rpm. To Be Honest Nothing on this car is more better then listening to the exhaust!! Gas is a bit of a bugger cause its just drinks it like water. also this cars very expensive on maintance

Power — If you like to drive with class,this is the car for you. Get used to being admired by other drivers on the road. Prestine condition, car was made to handle the road and equipped with trip tonic transmission for a faster pick me up.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Best Vehicle I've Ever Owned — Still the best looking SUV out there...many attempts to copy...never attained. A blast to drive coupled with 23.6mpg and surprisingly reliable. Handles incredibly well for a heavy SUV, especially in the snow. Can't beat the sound upon acceleration!

Great Car But Can Be Better — When this car fist came out i thought it was the worst mistake in porsche history but it is actually a great and fun car to own. the best part is that the car is almost 7 years old and hasn't asked for any major repairs. the only down side is the small engine.

Pros

Fast, comfortable, big fuel tank will last you 3-400miles

Cons

Very few - its not the most fuel economic.

Great Suv — This was my first Cayenne. Bought it in 2006 as Certified Pre-owned with 30k miles, and traded it in in 2010 with 63k miles. This V8 is quick and comfortable. II'm glad I had teh 4 year/50k miles warrantee - it took a couple of months to get some steering and suspension issues sorted out - but it was all done free of charge.

Awesome! — Tonnes of power, extremely comfortable seats, nicely equipped, horrible on gas, but its the price to pay! There isn't alot to say that isn't obvious, fun, fast, comfortable, practical, impractical, its all in how you use it! Seriously, this car is a monster!
