Pros

Nothing this big should drive this well or be this fast

Cons

Fuel mileage, repair costs

Fun Vehicle — These trucks are a real bargain now. You can find low mileage examples for 1/3rd the cost new, with CPO warranty. Fuel mileage isn't great (average 16 MPG, 14 MPG around town, 20 MPG highway), but in return you have a great driving experience. Appearance is great - most people have no idea that this vehicle was bought used - and think of it as a $90,000 vehicle. Comfortable to drive, with lots of performance - makes for a great trip vehicle.

Pros

it is a porsche

Cons

fuel consumption

55

What Bottom Line.... — It is a porsche, great handling, performance and build quality. It has a V8 engine with the torque of an truck and still resonable but these days somehwat too high consumption. It is fun to drive but one does not have as much fun as in a 911.

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

Pros

Great overall, most important, very responsive and stable

Cons

Slightly under powered - Turbo, would answer all the question and Turbo S would supersede them

Porsche - Knows Best How To Balance A Car — Great car, till I bought this, I never believed in SUVs but after owning one, I will keep it and upgraded it everytime, have my eyes set on the New 2008 Turbo......soon insha ALLAH. But Gemballa GT 750 - Tornedo is where my eyes are really set on, I would rather keep a Turbo S for daily use and Torendo for pleasure drives.

Porsche Cayenne S — Great car for everyday use. Whether driving it to work during the week or taking it skiing, during the winter or sailing during the summer it has the performance and versatility to do it all and do it in style.

Pros

Best car ever owned!
To buy 2nd hand once somebody else got hit by £70,000 depreciation...

Cons

Fuel economy!

25

Don't Knock It Before Trying It! — The best car ever...if you can cope with 12MPG and the maintenance cost!!! Finish is superb inside / out, incredible handling for this size of car. Engine is so strong, 0 to 60 in less than 5 sec! This said, a few minor issues: Sat Nav very poor for the year model and the price tag when new. Telephone interface lacks bluetooth.

Poor MPG

Impressions — Everything from the interior trim, handling, speed power, exterior, and sound system. Car is super heavy with side and front air bags. Downside is the cost on the maintenance, parts, and gas. Very poor MPG; however it is averaging approximately 16-18 on the highway depending on traffic.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros

Looks great, AWD works great, Power is there when you need it.

Cons

EXPESNIVE maintenance.  Being used to BMW Coverage - ALMOST nothing on this car was covered by the dealer, even in the first 3 years and 36K miles.

Looks And Drives Great.....but — I would not have this car for an everyday driver. Weekend or occasional use is great. Dealer parts and labor is a joke. $300 for an oil change? $1000 for front brakes. If you can work on it yourself, which I can, that helps. But when you don't have time or can't do it, you better be ready to get shafted. Towson and Len Stoler both are bad and expensive. However I did put 45K miles on the car and it never left me sitting anywhere or caused any major headaches. Just coming from BMW coverage for years, the maintenance bills where a big surprise!
