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, power, interior

Cons: Poor MPG

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!

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.

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Nothing this big should drive this well or be this fast

Cons: Fuel mileage, repair costs

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: Everything

Cons: Nothing

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: it is a porsche

Cons: fuel consumption

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

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

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.

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
