45K Maintenance Question


Recommended Posts

Happy Friday everyone.

My 2000 Cab has 44,400 miles. I bought it with 39,000 miles and the car is CPO. When I drove off, the dealer said, "see you in 15,000 miles for an oil change." I thought to myself, "whatever".

I'm going to get the oil changed at 45,000, but here is my question: do you think that the process of certifying the car would address other preventative maintenance issues that would need to be taken care of now or should I have the regularly scheduled 45k maintenance items performed in full? I plan on going to an indy shop for the oil change if I don't need additional service performed.

Thanks, and enjoy the weekend.

I can only speak for myself/local Porsche dealer so here goes. My CPO P-car had new brakes/tires all around and the carpet was removed and cleaned (still smelled like wet dog after all the Orange air freshener wore off - that's another story...) before I took delivery. The 100 point inspection was a joke as the fuel filler door latch was MISSING when they went over the car with me on delivery day and the cruise control didn't work on the way home. I asked if the car had experienced the dreaded RMS - was told no problem - good to go.

Let's just say that after two years, a half dozen trips to the dealer and 10 weeks without the car to address $8-10K in warranty issues, get a FULL inspection by an indy and bring the documentation to your dealer. They are obligated to fix the problems the indy finds.

My local Porsche dealer never questioned a repair once I brought it to their attention. Too bad 80% of what was fixed over the past two years was on the car when I bought it! Good luck.

Do what ever is required on the 45k maintanence according to your manuals. This will assure you and the dealer if any future problems arrise that your car has been maintained properly. Make sure the independent service center documents the service as preformed.
