2005 Build Quality

Recommended Posts

In the August Issue of PCA's Panorama magazine, in 'Street Talk,' the first item discusses the most current J. D. Power Initial Quality Survey. It cites that Porsche 'tops the list' with the least number of customer-reported problems of all autos. It also says that 'Apparently Porsche learned from the 2005 experience,' contrasting that year's quality with this year's.

Since I own a 2005 997, this concerns me. Is it something everyone knows and that I missed - that the 2005 models are NOT quality products?

I wonder if those of you out there who know these cars year-to-year have anything to add to this?

What about you 2005 997 owners?

My car had lots of early electrical problems, but after the 'main' sending unit (?) was replaced, everything works fine. I wonder if I should anticipate any problems that others might know about with the 2005 models?

Thanks

I would not worry about it too much! JD Power is a Marketing Tool. Not much more! I think they can turn out a survey many different ways.

I think the early Cayenne quality hurt Porsche a few years ago, and they are now making a nice recovery.

Don't forget, Porsche is a very limited production company. Toyota, Lexis, Honda and the likes make 100,000's of cars. I think this helps them with orverall quality and key learnings. But, we are starting to see HUGE recalls from them, so let's see how this plays out.

The first year of any new model will always have some needed updates - but it does mean that is a bad year. Any year will need some updates as time goes on - first years just might need a few more. I have a MY99 996 - the first year for the 996. IMHO of course...
