Staggering levels of depreciation,and some reliability issues.- very fast, very capable, Porsche build quality but hefty depreciation and high running costs.
The guy across the road has two.Staggering levels of depreciation,and some reliability issues.
What would the likes of 'warranty direct' charge you for a warranty?Thanks Guys
I really do like the look of the KN, and the running costs do not concern me, however stories like Bowfer's do.
I just really want to know if there are any 'real' reliability issues with the 'Turbo', if so I may go with just the 'S' instead. It may be that Bowfer's neighbour was just unlucky, maybe the history of the vehicle would tell a few tales.
Anyone running one?
Oh my god, I didn't expect that sort of cost for a warranty.Thanks Bowfer
I've just checked here;
Porsche Approved Warranty - Porsche Service - Personalisation & Service - Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG
A years warranty would cost £1,450. The problem is that over at the PistonHeads website, apparently there are complaints over the validity of the warranty. Im checking it out.
Of course, I was incredibly lucky picked up an absolute bargain. Paid £14,500 for a 2003 Black Cayenne Turbo with Black Leather/Interior. Also has NAV/PCM, Multifunction wheel, sunroof, roof rails, running boards, 20" Teckno Alloys, Rear DVD Screens and all the standard extras. Has 66K on the clock with full dealer history. Got the vehicle in a private sale, have been checking autotrader several times a day to pick this bargain up.Lucky sod!
I'm also looking at one do you mind me asking what year and price you got yours for and where you got it from?
Also update in a week or two on how its going
Tell him to put some of the money towards concealing those horrible blue garage doors......did the builder hang those in the dark?I posted a photo of my neighbour's house earlier in this thread.
The bloke who has (had..) two Cayennes.
I was speaking to him last night, he said he's sold the 3.2
He was a bit hacked off that all he could get was £11.5k.
The running costs aren't too bad as long as one doesn't do huge mileages. Now that we live in an era where many people work from home I don't think that the long assumed average mileage of 12,000 per annum is the case any longer.Still, a Porsche Cayenne with FSH for Focus money.
Quite incredible really, if you can afford to run one.
I agree, incredible amount of car for the price. Depreciation even worse than my Alpha GTV. I paid £24k new and sold it for £10 3 years later!!The running costs aren't too bad as long as one doesn't do huge mileages. Now that we live in an era where many people work from home I don't think that the long assumed average mileage of 12,000 per annum is the case any longer.
I used to do 30,000 a year most of which was commuting but now that's down to 6,000 and my wife has a 30 mile round trip to work so she averages 7,000 a year so the difference between the 19-20mpg of a Cayenne and more economic cars is much less painful.
£1,800 pa for insurance is a helluva lot as I only pay about £400 a year for my BMW 645So ignoring petrol costs here are the monthly costs I worked out from doing a small amount of surfing
Service for KN = every 6 months INTERIM £300 FULL £500
Service for Mondeo = every 12 months. Interim = £14, full = £229so averaged it out.
Warranty for Mondeo was taken from the first site I found.
Insurance is purely a guess
So £252 a month more expensive than a normal family saloon...I think I've worked out why they're so cheap to buy
