  1. I see this Porsche Cayenne transfer case issue widely reported but too few individuals are filing NTSB complaints / reports (I filed). Aside from Porsche’s two year warranty, every state has laws that provide for implied warranties that cannot be negated. Perhaps a class action suit will come together but the actual victims of this manufacturer’s defect will not recover much, compared to the legal fees. Porsche could have issued a voluntary fix once the problem was discovered but chose to do nothing. I suppose Volkswagen’s approach has been adopted by its premium brand...
  2. 2012 Porsche Cayenne - 47,800 miles - I noticed a “pull” when turning left some time ago. It was not always present but became more common and I thought I noticed slipping. I took it to our Durham, NC Porsche dealer this week and received a repair estimate of $4,435 to replace the transfer case. The dealership accepted my request that they contact Porsche and their regional rep about covering all or part of the cost to correct this known defect, and for confirmation they follow the “new” corrective process.. A local boutique Porsche shop explained that this is a known transfer case issue and Porsche has provided corrective repair instructions...but no known recall notice to date. I know Porsche is owned 49% by Volkswagen, which has certainly been known to cut corners and ignore issues until sued, but I expected better of a premium brand like Porsche. Costly, unfair and extremely disappointing to Porsche Cayenne owners.
