Extended warranty on a Porsche 2009 Cayenne S
I've been looking at the Porsche Cayennes S model
.. Mainly 2008 or 2009 .. having over 70Kmiles / in
some cases they're close to 100K miles.
Would love to know if anyone out there has had
positive experiences with aftermarket extended
warranties .. ?
And would certainly be interested in opinions
reflecting negative experiences too !!
Aftermarket warranties have lots of fine print and some parts may not be covered. It is best to read and understand any warranty you may purchase. Also consider that Porsche vehicles are VERY expensive to repair and buying one without some sort of warranty may be a foolish decision. I am thinking you already understand this.
Yes .. That's what I'm being told by pretty much everyone .. Thanks Bob !
We only trust Porsche extended warranty or CarMax premium warranty for vehicles they sell. Porsche extended warranty is really expensive to purchase after first year. Our quote was $10,900 for an additional 3years + 30K miles on a 2012 Cayenne with 40K miles. Our story is below...
Oh, I forgot, our best recommendation is CPO from Porsche that includes 7yr + 100K mile extended warranty for FREE. Buy CPO or Lease CPO. Our story, below...
Hi, Hallo! We have the V8 Cayenne S from 2012, about 40K miles. These vehicles are great to own/lease/drive if they are under factory warranty, especially if there is a dealer near you. If you want to buy new or CPO from Porsche, make sure you buy the PREPAID MAINTENANCE, that will save you thousands. If you want to own past the warranty period, buy the extended warranty when you buy the car, because later it will be killer cost (for us to add 3yrs + 30K miles is $10,900 extended warranty from Porsche, no joke, I had to ask Finance for a quote). Another great choice is to buy Porsche CPO with the added 7yr+100K mile warranty attached being FREE. CPO with Porsche is great b/c it includes the warranty for trivial cost. And when something breaks, it is NOT TRIVIAL. Recently our 2012 Cayenne experienced a COOLANT LEAK due to the ENDEMIC PORSCHE COOLANT PIPE ATTACHMENT DESIGN found on all models, including high end 911's and Panamera's from the 2010- 2014 time period. Porsche decided to use LOCTITE adhesive to attach critical cooling tubes within the engine instead of a simple screwed-clamp (No Joke, across all 3 models!). Porsche filed a 25- pg NHTSA response from the factory that shows their weak coolant "water neck" adhesive design. Our Cayenne cooling tube connecting the 2 halves of the engine came loose, and all the coolant escaped the car in less than 30 seconds. Luckily we were on surface streets, and after flat-bedding the SUV 30 miles to the nearest dealer, the cost to repair was $5,500. We are real fortunate that our SoCal Porsche Advisor went to bat for us with PCNA, and that thankfully PCNA covered $4,800 of the cost, out of warranty. The repair requires that the ENGINE BE REMOVED from the car! (like a Ferrari 30K mile service!) Our overall impressions on owning this vehicle: (1) Driveability for S, GTS and up models are super impressive (2) Dealer service and loan car program are awesome (3) Buy CPO with 7yr+100K warranty (4) Buy New with Prepaid Maintenance & Extended Warranty (5) Just Lease or Lease CPO (6) Buy from CarMax with Premium Extended Warranty from CarMax (7) Least costly is Lease New or Lease CPO or CarMax... Best wishes for all you old and new Porschephiles!!

At Carmax, the cheapest Cayenne S they will sell you, is a: 2011 Cayenne S, 44K miles, $36,998. Seems a little overpriced for a 2011, but only 44K miles. At this time the oldest Cayenne they will sell you is a 2011. (On 3/3/2017)
