Looking for a new SUV for my wife, her nissan murano is all beat up

i was looking into getting a 2006 cayenne s titanium edition.

few questions:

1. almost all that i see are out of factory warranty, does anyone have an aftermarket warranty? if so which company should i purchase this through

2. any major issues with the 2006?

3. thoughts on my wife driving this, she is not a speed demon by any means, since we had our first child she drives slow, super slow

Some answers:

1. You can still find 2006's which fall under full Porsche CPO. An example: 2006 Porsche Cayenne S Titanium Edition, CPO

2. Search the Renntech posts for known issues -- coolant pipes, drive shaft, and coil packs seem to be the top three issues.

3. They are solid vehicles. Read the manual and you'll learn a lot (download here on Renntech) -- they are surprisingly easy to work-on and maintain then you may think. Regarding your wife's driving -- Cayenne's can be driven safely, it's up to the driver.

Edit -- fixed typos.

CPO is way to go (aftermarket warranty second). Many available - search autotrader or Porsche website. The issues you will have with an 06 are coolant pipes and coils (unless already replaced). Driveshafts not an issue on 06. Many other 'potential' problems but most are easily fixed. A Cayenne without a warranty could be very expensive.

Other things to consider:

- Maintenance costs are expensive - dealer oil change ~$250 for example. DIY for much less

- Are you going to tow? Get one with a trailer hitch not the other way around.

- Many Cayenne's have larger wheels that typically have "summer" tires (like the one in the post above). Unless you live somewhere warm, factor in replacement tires - obviously you wouldn't want your wife driving around with these tires in winter.

Happy hunting...

I have a 2006 Cayenne S Ti edition with 70000 miles Marine blue in color. It's in great shape. Still has the CPO warranty. I'm asking 39,900 for it. E-mail me if you want pics... james.harms13@gmail.com
