Porsche Cayenne S Problems

No Start or Stalling Due to Failed Fuel Pump

A no start or stalling condition may develop do to a failing fuel pump. A faulty fuel pump will require replacement. Our technicians recommend to inspect internal fuel tank connections for leaks whenever replacing the fuel pump.

Coolant leak due to cracked pipe

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.

Brake Pads and Rotors May Wear Out Prematurely

Brake pads and rotors may wear out prematurely. This can be heavily dependent on driving style. Our technicians recommend regular brake inspections with replacement of pads and rotors as required.
