It's probably priced appropriately for the amount of mileage as most cars are. Since it's a Porsche, it's probably also been taken care of with maintenance. Have a Porsche mechanic inspect it before purchasing. At 93K, your getting close to 100K when you might have to perform some maintenance items, and you should know Porsche parts are more expensive than Ford parts. Just have some money in the bank for future repairs. I say that with any used car purchase.

Although I couldn't find data on the 2006 model, this will give you an idea of costs to maintain on the 2010 model (from Motor Trend). Expect to have to ante up a decent amount of $$$$ at this mileage. I'd strongly recommend avoiding it, unless you have a large trust fund or just GOTTA have a Porsche: http://www.motortrend.com/cars/2010/porsche/cayenne/cost_of_ownership/

make sure your aware of the maintenance schedules timing belt water n oil pumps,, I was looking at a late 80s 911 and it turned me off when I found out they required a new timing belt every 40k miles (if I remember correctly) also make sure there are shops in your area that will even work on them unless your adept at working on cars

Porsches handle high miles better than most cars. I have an 04 Cayenne Turbo with 127000 miles and no real problems. Just make sure the coolant pipes, driveshaft and coils have been replaced, as they are the weak points on a Cayenne

Note coolant pipe issue was limited to 2002 - 2006, depending on whether V6 or V8. Porsche settled the matter in 2013 and claims had to be filed by Dec 2014.

It's 2017 and I'm happy with my 2006 Cayenne S Titanium with 350 V-8 at 167,000 miles. Ready to do maintenance for another 10,000 miles at least. Now, I have lived through the collapse of the cooling pipes( on a pleasure road trip) and have replaced the drive shaft( truly my fault). All coils were replaced under warranty and brakes have been going about 80-90,000 miles. Muffler sounds like the day I bought it. So, to have a very fine luxury Porsche long paid for and purring like a tiger for a few thousand every 6 to 12 months, I'm very happy indeed. We'll get my wife a new Audi before we part with this Cayenne. GLTA>

I'm surprised how the prices for 2006 are now.. I'm thinking about it. What would you say the average cost to repair is? And how many miles are too much?

10

In my case, I've absorbed most of the major issues. Average cost of a major component? $1500. So now I think I can look forward to 200,000 miles plus. No more high speed trips for me, however...just a sweet ride for in town and short trips. Nonetheless,I wouldn't hesitate to drive from Indy to LA and back tomorrow, but major road trips are not my goal.
