Good Family Hauler — I would recommend this over a Range Rover or X5. A bit more performance orientated and less likely to leave you at the side of the road with the hood up. Mine was bought used and came with ski racks, snow chains, new navigation maps, all the recalls / TSBs completed. I highly recommend paying $150 for a pre-purchase inspection for a car this complex.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The Cayenne Turbo is very quick when the turbo boost kicks in. Lots of gadgets everywhere. The Turbo is much better equipped than the base model.

Cons: The car is ugly and guzzles fuel, but get 15mpg fuel economy when taking it easy. Also there are a few common issues with these like cooling hoses, drive shafts and coils that must be rectified.

At the moment, I am getting occasional 4WD errors and PSM errors, like from the transfer case module.

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

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!

2004 Porsche Cayenne Turbo AWD Review
Sawyer says:
Ive owned this car for about a year now and have only had one minor fault (other than what I bought the car with). It has been amazingly reliable, reasonably fast lol, and amazingly well equipped for a car of this age. But the most amazing is with a set of good tires it is easily the most capable off-road car Ive ever owned easily beating my 100 series land cruiser for that title. Only downfalls are expensive parts (which if you shop around online arent too bad) and poor fuel economy.
