Coolant tubes, cardan shafts (drive shaft central bearing goes bad), noisy HVAC blower motors all fail prematurely

Repairs are very costly unless you can do the work yourself. Fuels pumps go, coolant tubes, chain tension er, water pump, all had to be repaired on my 2004 Cayenne. Also brakes have to be replaced every 10,000 or so miles. They take turns needing replacement, first the front and then the back. Tires are minimum $800-$1,000. they seem to wear every 15,000 or so miles. And the radio PCM amplifier had to be replaced, I loved my car, but finally sold it at 105,000 miles. IF you can afford the repairs then go for it. I do not know if later models were any better.

Get a car history from the owner. I kept all my repairs receipts. Did I mention fuel pumps also had to be replaced.
