The status of my dealings with Porsche: I have received a letter from Porsche that states they refuse to pay for a new engine. They have refused to call me back and discuss. I have started a complain with BBB in Atlanta and have contacted several other consumer groups. IF ANYONE else has experience this or any other complete engine failure on low mileage Boxsters please email me. I want to get as many cases as possible. -Scott Robinson
I have been really busy at work so I have not been able to keep on the case as much as I would like too. I have escalated the case within Porsche NA but have not received a call from them. I have started a case with the Better Business Bureau and who should be in contact with them. I was thinking of hiring some day workers to picket outside Porsche NA until they give me a call back. LOL. The whole situation is just so disheartening. I finally own a Porsche and the baby dies on me 2 weeks in. I just can't believe the lack of communication that they are giving me. It is like they don't care about owners of Mint condition Porsches that just blow up.
I am in Atlanta so I will look into that option. If I have to pony up the 15k I might as will get a bigger engine plus not contribute any money to Porsche or the dealership. Thanks for the idea Here's the status of my case with Porsche Porsche NA has escalated the case to the "Out of Warranty" dept. but they refuse to call me back. I have sent a mass email asking for assistance or just for an FYI to such groups as the BBB, GA Governors office, local Media, CNN, Government officials, dept of commerce. I am just surprised that Porsche NA will not even communicate with me. I love Porsche cars and I knew after 2 weeks of owning my first I would never own anything else. But with the lack of respect that customer commitment has shown me I would have to rethink my feelings.
Sorry. The car only had 27K mileage on it. If you don't think its caused by the IMS problem what would cause Metal to be in the Oil Filter housing? -Scott
2 days ago I was driving around 30mph and without warning my 02 Boxster 2.7 made a weird noise and shut down. I tried to restart the car and the engine would knock but would not remain running. I have recently bought the car from a good friend so I know that the car was taken care of. I had it towed to the local dealer who indicated that a replacement engine was needed. The dealer said without opening up the engine they could not determine exactly the cause of the engine failure. But they could tell me the following There was small pieces of metal within the oil filter casing The Bank 1 Oil Scavenge Pump was seized The Bank 1 Cam Sprocket had failed The Bank 1 Cam Chain had failed Does anyone know how all this damage could happen without warning and a matter of seconds? Does this sound like the intermediate shaft failure problem that is well documented? If so, has anyone been able to get PCNA to pay for a new engine even out of warranty. Any help would be awesome. I am looking at a 15K bill right now.
