I'm about to buy a 2006 Cayenne with 70,900 miles on it. It needs new tires soon. I was told Michelin Pilot Sport. What does anyone out there recommend.

Asked by Feb 18, 2014 at 05:37 PM about the 2006 Porsche Cayenne Tiptronic AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

According to CARMAX last two Maintenance Inspections were performed 6/6/2012 at 62,410 miles and Recommended Maintenance was performed 1/17/2014 at 70,857 miles. I apid $330 to  Pacific Porsche to conduct a "Pre-Purchase Inspection". Few minor discrepancies were found:Control Module showed faults at Air conditioning, Gateway Control Module, Electrical system - but they said it may only need re-sets (whatever that means),low-tone part of the horn not working, front Power port&Cigarette lighter not working (Fuse?) Cup Holder&Cigarette lighter broken in rear, chips in windshield, Drive Belt may need changing (based on age&mileage), the 4 tires on the car are not Porsche-recommended. They also recommended a Major Service ($1,275!) based on mileage&age. Also brake fluid renewal ($235!). WHAT ELSE CAN I ANTICIPATE DOWN THE ROAD? Appreciate any help.

Sounds like normal wear and tear items for a car that old and mileage. As you know Porsche's aren't cheap to maintain.......http://www.6speedonline.com/forums/cayenne-148/

Pilot Sports are premier tires. I've had good luck using Kumho's on my 2000 996. Lots cheaper in cost, and unless you need track capabilities, the Kumho's or even General Tire's performance tires are almost just as good, for lots less money. Check out the Tire Rack's survey results.

I'd definitely use that inspection report as a bargaining chip to either get the seller to lower the price on the car or have some of the services done before you buy the car. HTH. -Jim

Make sure you seriously consider future repair and maintenance costs. It can be jaw-dropping shocking. For example: over $900 for new battery, installation and a headlight bulb replacement. Painful.
