Our S Diesel is coming up to two years old and 33k miles...been a great car. Don’treally want to change it because the engine is great but had a look at the AUC site to see what it’s maybe worth....amazed to see that searching for 2016 onwards there are only 12 S Diesels in the OPC network. I guess there’s a lot of demand for Diesel Cayenne’s !

My 2012 V6 Diesel still going strong after 92k miles. The only thing I've had go wrong was the fuel flap lock motor, which I swopped myself for £20 (Audi part). I now get it serviced out of the main dealer network - there's an indy up the road, so happy.

I believe the 4WD system in the S models differs to that in the standard Cayennes (and possibly the hybrid)

And if you limit to a platinum edition SD like mine I believe there are four!

Now on my 3rd transfer box yet the problem persists. Grating noise when I turn out of a junction, more common after the 'hold' function has been engaged.

Sunroof still rattling to add insult to injury.

Only saving grace is that I managed to get another 12 months warranty out of Porsche UK.

Sorry to hear you’ve had so many problems. People complain about unreliable Land Rovers but goes to show even Porsche churn out the odd dud.

My 2014 S diesel has had a couple of minor electrical gripes and the rear dampers are a bit tired but it’s done 125k of heavy use and towing. Never had any major gripes so far.

Me neither, although I have had a transfer box. 2 years old and 23k mlles so still basically as new.
Its a great car, can see me keeping it for some time. The 4.2 V8 diesel is a monster of an engine and 33mpg

I remain delighted with my 2013 Diesel S. Now over 110K, I can't find anything to replace it with. OPC lent me a Panamera Hybrid whilst Cayenne was in for service. I drove it the same way as I drive the Cayenne, on the same commute and scored about 22MPG. OPC couldn't understand why I didn't like it.

New Toerag V8 diesel looks promising...

I had a transfer box at 40K under warranty, split AC pipe last year. Extra oil and transmission fluid changes and it still looks and drives like new.

The £6K PCCBs have broken even now. Original discs, third set of front pads and second set of rears. Steelies would be on their third set of discs now !

See all the drama the chaps are having on the 2018 Cayenne thread. Build quality doesn't seem to be on par with these.

Might have to wash the K&Ns out again at the weekend, I've slipped down to 33.5 MPG.biggrin

Funny I’ve bought a last gen panamera hybrid from a family friend as a stopgap until my Jag arrives, I get almost identical fuel consumption to the Cayenne out of it even before the EV range and it’s about equal in terms of poke... hate to say it but I also actually quite like it although I haven’t quite shaken the sensation that all it’s missing is a big diesel V8 to finish it off

Sadly VW won't bring the V8 D to the UK. Plonkers

Ours has been the most reliable, dependable, comfortable, practical, family wagon over the past 4 years, literally never missing a beat over 48k miles.

Going to miss it when it goes but looking forward to the new one when it arrives.

The paint is perfect, the interior still box fresh and the oily bits have been totally reliable.

The only cost other than tyres and servicing was getting the brakes done a couple of months back.

Seems to have held it's value fairly well too despite the diesel faff at present, although being Euro VI must be helping.

Going to miss it hugely.

Which 2018 Cayenne thread? If it’s the one which I’m posting on the main drama is the complete lack of service from my OPC :/

Other then an intermittent NAV crash (for which they have no fix) the cars actually been quite reliable.

That's the one. The nav crash, with no fix ! You're all fuming. You've come from the 958, and have never before seen issues. Clearly the new Cayenne is a great car, but the electronics crashing, with no fix available would not be acceptable for me. Not demeaning the car or owners at all, just astounded this is what Porsche has presented the customers with. I also see Saj's comments on the build and interior, hence my comment above. This combined with the ongoing delivery delays would have brought on my hypertension if there'd been a new V8 diesel, and if I'd order one.

All hail the news of the Diesel with electric supercharger Audi S6 .. I now fancy one of those !

I’ve just done 2.5k miles across France, Italy and Switzerland in my S Diesel over the last two weeks...god it’s a fantastic bit of kit for hauling a family and a load of luggage in supreme comfort but still being able to be a fun drive when the roads get interesting. Part of my drive included the Route Napoleon which is the best four hours I’ve ever spent behind the wheel of a car....despite it being in a Cayenne and not a GT3!

Totally agree with the sentiment about the V8 Diesel...journey home was 650 miles on quite busy roads. Not only is it such a great engine from a driving perspective but that 500 mile plus range really does come in handy....driiving past service stations with 20 min queues for refuelling is a big plus.

Hahaha. I'm the only owner fuming on that thread and it certainly isn't about the Nav crash or the car itself.

I've had several early cars and the intermittent Nav crash is nothing to get agitated over. I once had pads stick to the discs and rip themselves off and the manufacturer tried to tell me it was because they got wet :/ Silly thing to say as they made my not fit for purpose argument for me biggrin In fact I've had worse on mid production cars, where things really should have been ironed out.

I've been left fuming because of the crap service from the OPC. Don't return calls/emails. Didn't tell me when they had the press car in despite the fact I had one of their earliest orders. Didn't tell me when the order was due to close for spec. Cancel bookings the evening before. Or worse still I turn up and they have no record of my service booking and hence no courtesy car. My second order I chased them for 6 months and they never got back to me frown Eventually I had to complain to Porsche UK. That resolved the issues on the sales side. But on the service side, once again I emailed them about a recall and they didn't respond for over a week :/ It's only because I mentioned it to my new sales exec that it got resolved as he walked over to service and stood over one of them until they made the booking.

The car itself I'm about as happy as I could be in an SUV. Would still prefer a car in terms of driving dynamics, but the practicality has been wonderful and it delivers as much fun as I will get in something this size. I like the way it looks. The engine is great. The interior is nice and they've addressed the things I didn't like about the 958. But I still think the Cayenne interiors (this and the 958) aren't as nice as the RR/X5/X6.

The residuals have been great. I have the coupe coming in June and based on the trade in price this car is set to cost me less then a years lease on an average saloon smile I'll take the odd Nav crash all day long in exchange for a years relatively cheap motoring! I suspect I would have had my pants taken down if i'd taken one of the 958 run outs which I was also considering.

Let's talk tyres. On my 2012 diesel, the last two sets have been Michelin Latitude Sports 2s and 3s over 75000 miles and I regularly saw 38-39 on the mpg-o-meter at the end of a 32 mile run.
SO, I thought I'd try a set of slightly cheaper Yokohama 105Ts this time around, thinking that the mpg rating of 'E' on the EU tyre label for these particular boots compared to 'C' for the Michelins would mean didly squat.
How wrong can you be. I'm lucky if I see 34 now. Gutted, and surprised.

we have had the v8 diesel for a couple of months now and have done about 3k.

I can not believe how much i love the car, i really cant, in sport plus with the suspension on the lowest it feels like a toy/fun car, i actively take it out for a drive and enjoy beating up some b roads in it, which considering it weighs more than my tipper van is quite something hehe
Maybe i am getting old but i prefer the whole experience to my tvr tuscan, this doesn't feel like it will kill you but is still fun and involving. Never ever thought id say that about an suv.

The torque is so addictive, it handles well and is actually quite quick, even gear changes are pretty good, i found that down changes could be a bit slow in auto but i just use the paddles when i want it to change down sooner.

What a great car!
