This is Onur. I am here to get some advice before I make a purchase of 2015-16 Cayanne S AWD for my wife. We did test drove one today and I love it a lot other than the fan noise that comes under the seat when I turn on the seat cooling feature high.
I drive ///M vehicles quiet a bit and all the maintenances done by me including Rod Bearing replacement. I do have original softwares to diagnose my cars so I can handle pretty much any issue on those cars. I would like to know how reliable is the Porsche Cayannes? And I would like to get a honest opinion from experienced owners here. I did hear couple of times battery draining issues on Porsches was common but I am not sure how it is right now with the new gen Porsches.
As far as my research v6 3.6 engine is a very reliable engine. And I also own a Jeep JK with Pentastar 3.6 v6 which I had a great luck with. So I really like the engine built on the Porsche as well. Other than the engone what should I be concern or what is the chronic problems on these vehicles? (We have rod bearing and TA (Throttle Actuator) issues on e9x m3s as a chronic problem and it is really easy to fix if you catch on time). And we are going to drive this vehicle just for fun since we have DD work vehicles on regular basis.
As far as the steering wheel goes it looks like the leater torn apart even tho the milage is only 26k miles. What do you guys suggest overall. Any help appreciated
