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.

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

Love My Car! — Performance is amazing. I have beaten Mustangs, Corvettes, V12 Mercedes etc. I've needed no repairs other than a tire where I ran over a nail. The only two things that bother me are #1-the turbos need time to wind up, and #2 the leather is that real soft glove leather and my jeans have turned the seat blue. Other than that the car is great!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros

Mucho fun, the match of any hot hatch...

Cons

Fugly, only the match of a hot hatch and 11 MPG

55

24 Hour Test Drive - Porsche Cayenne S — The Porsche Cayenne S - with nearly 400 BHP from its rumbling V8 this massive car is able to do things a car this big just shouldn't be able to do, with a 0-60 time the same as a Focus ST it is also nearly as agile. With the suspension set to sport mode it corners like you wouldn't believe and the sounds pretty good too. But when it comes to quick direction changes and breaking, you can't get away from the fact it is a really heavy car and it can't hid its weights as well as when it is cornering. The car is pretty ugly though and there is no getting away from that, but the view form the inside is pretty good, it is a nice place to be and the SatNav works well enough. Over the full tank of fuel it averaged only 11 MPG -- ouch!!!!

Pros

Speed, Looks, SEATS 5, acceleration, breaks, space

Cons

Gas Mileage and Price

105

Too Fast For Its Own…… Weight? — This car was awesome! It was a lot of fun to drive. It's 6 speed manumatic transmission was a lot of fun and fairly fast actually. It also had a few fun buttons like "sport" and other things that literally changed the personality of the car. This is easily the scariest car I have ever driven. Nothing NOTHING that weighs this much should move like this. The way this car launches from a line and comes to a screeching halt literally breaks the laws of physics! It's awesome... The only issue with this car is the terrible gas mileage. I averaged about 11 mpg which is terrible… but its still a lot of fun!

Can tow my 911 to track or race the cayenne instead

Cons

not as good off road as the hummer was but still great

400hp Suv What More Do You Need — Nothing like it. Would never own another Hummer after this. It can out handle and out perform many sports cars. Things like heated steering wheel, GPS and techquipment exhaust make it a winner
