Hi Guys!

Came across this thread and just want to share it with you guys.

I'm quite sure that this is just a remote case and this experience and comments would represent the minority. I'm sure this is one of the "few bad eggs" in every batch. At the end of the day I am still quite confident with this new technology and how well it will perform.... and I just can't wait to take delivery on my Macadamia Carera S PDK this december! :D

Happy driving and Godspeed!

I just had a dealer replaced the transmission on my Cayenne.

The gear occasionally locked at 2nd while the display told me it was on the 3rd or 4th. It didn't make sense since the car would only go as fast as 20 MPH while the engine revved to the red line.

The computer would not even record a code. I managed to take some videos and got the job done.

I drove a 05 Cayenne S couple of months ago. A similar problem happened to me once, while the transmission was on automatic shift, and I accelerated it pretty good from about 30 MPH. I heard the gear "de-clutched" and the engine was revving when the vehicle was losing power and speed. Then a big "bang" from the bottom up. It was like the car was gonna blow up. In fact, that was the original symptom on the Cayenne V6.

Now I see this and start to wonder if this problem commonly exists across all Porsche models.

Here are some of the videos I mentioned earlier.
