"I have had many very nice cars over the years, including BMW, Porsche, Mercedes, Audi. I love my Cayenne Turbo more than anything! The power, performance, styling, SUV capabilities, make me feel like the Super Bowl Quarterback that just won the MVP award!
I bought an '04 just about 8 months ago, for 1/2 the price of a new one. The look is the same, the performance 98% the same, and a great buy after a couple of years depreciation!"
"Having owned only foreign cars, the Porsche Cayenne is my favorite! Grew up with MGBs, MGBGTs, Jags, 2 944s and a 911 with a whaletail! Eventually moved to Mercedes for 18 years. Last year test drove and bought my 2006 Porsche Cayenne. It is black with dark gray interior and it is a 'head stopper.' More people have commented on this car than any other I have owned. I have not had one problem with it. The engineering, finishes are all superb. It is a joy to drive and corners so well you forget you are in an SUV. Just go test drive one and fall in love!"
Pros: "Much more vehicle for the money than others."
Cons: "Service costs are high, but with longer intervals."
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"Never really paid attention to the Cayenne until I was talked into driving one right after driving an Escalade. Unbelievable! Handles like a sports car, goes ANYWHERE in the snow with locking differentials, gets good gas mileage for how fast and sporty it is. Bought it as a CPO with full warranty at the same price as much lesser SUV's. It's a blast."
"Bought an '04 S with less than 12K miles over two years ago and could not be more pleased with the vehicle. This is the perfect SUV. Yes it is a little pricey to maintain but it is such a pleasure to drive that you forget the costs. If you are in the market for a Luxury SUV be sure to test drive the Cayenne."
