Porsche Cayenne S Coolant leak due to cracked pipe
Porsche Cayenne S Problem
Average Mileage: 84,400 mi (63,000 mi - 102,000 mi)
My cayenne's coolant pipes broke at 84k miles. The symptom of this is when all your radiator fluid starts pouring out into the street. It seems like all pre-05 cayenne's have this issue eventually. It's causes by defective plastic coolant pipes. The fix is to have Porsche "upgrade" them to metal pipes for $3,000. There is currently a class action lawsuit pending for this.
