  1. I have been a porsche owner since I bought a 356SC in 1964. Always very pleased with Porsche until recently when the intermediate shaft failed on my 46K mile 2002 C4. Checked with every Porsche dealer within 200 miles ( all were very aware of the problem and advised that many of the 996 series thru 2002 have this failure at around 50K miles. Porsche changed the design at the end of 2002, because of the problem. ) and the best I could do was $20K for a new engine. Talked with a porsche consumer rep who told me " it was a problem we were aware of and necessitated a design change, but your car is out of warrantee and it is your problem." As a long time Porshe enthusiast and currently own 2 of them, I am a little put out with situation. I am 68 years old and the C4 is my daily driver, never raced or abused and well maintained I expected much more from the car and the company than that. If that had happened to my Toyota tundra I feel sure they would have made it good. I will still tell you Porsche is the best driving car on the road but I have reservations about their current committment to the customer. Sorry for the negativity, but beware of buying the 2002 and older 996"s unless you have an extra 20 grand to spend on an engine.
