Porsche 944 Problems
Due to a broken plastic link at the servo motor for the heater control flap, the interior temperature can become wildly erratic.
Due to a failed resistor pack, the HVAC fan may only operate on the high speed setting.
The cooling system must be inspected regularly, as small leaks can develop at the reservoir. The heater valve and fan operation should also be inspected.
Engine oil leaks at the cam housing, balance shaft, cam shaft, and oil pump should be repaired quickly. The timing belt can become oily and deteriorate if leaks are not repaired.

Porsche 944 Reviews
This car is my favorite porsche. It is a true time capsule! These cars are for sale at as low as $2,000 for a nice one! If you are looking for a reliable daily driver porsche, get a 944!
As an affordable entry into owning a Porsche this has been a great car.Parts are pretty affordable ,a little tricky to work on.but basic stuff like brakes and oil change no problem ,if your set up.I am at 145,00 miles now , after nearly 80,000 of ownership.No real failures at all.Replaced timing belt twice as needed and replaced the water pump once.Brakes are really good , replaced pads & rotors awhile back , pad life more than reasonable.A good first , modern Porsche.
