Man that makes alot of sense. I will be more mindful of this and I think I should be ok. Until I read your post I had an appointment at the dealer to get this checked out. I would have hated to be charged $120.00 to be told the same thing from them. I was a little suspicious because the dealer seemed to act like this was not a very common issue.
Thanks I also heard something about a micro switch (don't know if that is a different name for the magnets you described) how easy are these to replace? And FYI it does have tiptronic.
On my 04 Cayenne S Transmission goes from D mode to manual by itself. It does this generally at slow speeds and does not do it all the time. Was wondering if this is just some kind of switch or sensor that has gone bad.
