Better than any other SUVs on the road

My 2006 V6 Cayenne drives excellent that no other SUVs possibly come close to it. I highly recommend it. Maintenance at the dealer will be very expensive, so I recommend owners find alternative shops ...

Having owned a Toyota Highlander, a Nissan Murano, a Ford Explorer and driven a Range Rover and Mercedes ML 350, I can say nothing compares with the solid feel, the handling and the overall sense of security provided by the Cayenne. It offers exceptional braking, great handling - especially in the snow, a v ery comfortable interior on a long trip and excellent visibility.

I recently purchased a 2006 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S. This is a limited release suv. By far, it is the best car or suv I've ever owned. It has every imaginable option and most come stock with this particular model. It performs as a sports car even though its a 6000 lb suv. On road, off road, city driving or highway driving it is phenomenal and unsurpassed by any other suv!!!

Better driving than my Mercedes E500 4Matic. The first time I drove it was 1200 miles home. I was able to drive it straight through only stopping for gas. I have owned Mercedes, Nissan, Mazda, Buick, Ford, Chevy, Oldsmobile and Pontiac and this is this best and most comfortable road car. Too bad I bought it for my wife.Arcanum, Ohip

Cayenne Turbo S

On the long, often empty, straights of 131 across Michigan the Turbo S was outrageously serene. As I cruised through snowstorms, surprise hailstorms and blistering rain over the years, it pushed forth with only slight differences in tire noise to indicate whether we were moving across water, ice or broiling asphalt. Even on lonely stretches of open road, as our speed crept inadvertently toward three digits, there was barely a change in the wind’s whistle. This is Porsche's most capable and powerful SUV, and it is built to ingest continents. The high-style,Turbo S has a predatory countenance. There’s something empowering about simply ducking under the roof and into the thickly bolstered driver’s seat, as if you’ve transformed from a weakling into a Charles Atlas muscleman without the weightlifting. It is a great car. fast, strong, comfortable and reliable.

Great car for on road and off road. Solid, tough, reliable and powerful. Sometimes light bulb problems, but other than that, it is a great car. Handles amazing for an SUV type vehicle. Handles more like a car. Porsche did an outstanding job combining the SUV/Sports Car.

I purchased my 2006 Cayenne Turbo several years ago and have no plan to replace it anytime soon. I drove several long distance trips and truly have enjoyed the comfort, ride, power and reliability. Have owned a M491 911 for many years but my advanced years made crawling in and out tough and though I still own it I have been spoiled by the Cayenne and seldom drive the 911. Just drove the Cayenne across the country and with 98,000+ had no concerns or issues. If you want a comfortable and reliable 4 door sports car/SUV I would highly recommend you try one. If you look hard, you can find one used but properly maintained at a reasonable price.

Porsche is rated as the No. 1 car and I'm convinced. I loved my Cayenne. Few mechinical problems. There are amazing details one finds only by driving the car. Reliable, great maneuverability, extremely comfortable ride on trips or in town. Porsche thinks of everything. All the pros makes up for the medium gas mileage. Mine is a V-6, but extremely peppy. Bose sound system amazing.
