2006 Porsche Cayenne Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 84,000 miles


2 issues. Like other 2006 Porsche Cayenne's, in normal driving in my neighborhood in 2014 my car started vibrating uncontrollably. Stopped driving and had it towed to the dealer. Turns our the drive train broke at 74,000 miles. Which seems is a systemic problem with all 2006 Cayennes. $2400 to repair. Then last week the coolant water pipes broke draining all the coolant fluid out of the car while it was being driven in normal traffic. Towed to the dealer. I soon learned that there had been 8 class action law suites filed on this problem in I believe 2010 and Porsche set aside $45M without admitting guilt to end the law suit and to fix affected cars; however, you had to have it fixed by the end of 2013. Nobody told me of this problem, especially my dealer where the car sits today as I try to get either the dealer of Porsche of na to support the cost of the fix. So far they are not willing. Cost to repair is $2800. Car has 84 thousand miles. Seems strange that NHTSA since every 2006 Porsche Cayenne has both of these expensive problems. www.coolantpipesettlement.com/
