Is an extended CPO warranty from Porsche worth it?

Recommended Posts

I had some warranty work done on my car (2007 997 TT) last week. I bought an extended CPO warranty from my dealer when I bought the car. I paid $3,200 for 2 more years/100k miles. I wasn't worried abuout the power train when I bought the warranty. It was everything else I was concerned about....

I took the car in last week for a bunch of little things...

The CD was not ejecting properly out of the PCM, The Carbon pieces on my door storage area (lid) were warping, The cup holder strip was not seating flush as it should and finally the interior switch that open the trunk stopped working.

Well they fixed everything... Replaced the entire stereo unit, replaced the whole cup holder assembly and replaced the Carbon Fiber on the doors. The price tag ???? $5,500! I'd say that warranty was money well spent indeed!

My Service manager said "bring it back soon! Find some more things wrong with it! I'll replace the whole dam car if you want me to!"

They don't care how they get paid as long as they do.. Funny business the car business...

If you can get a CPO. Especially if you have a good relationship with your dealer..

Good dealer...and good for you! Sounds like you have an extended warranty not a CPO though since I've not heard of separate pricing for CPO - the cost of CPO is built in to the selling price of the car and is a Porsche warranty - but it doesn't really matter since you got your problems taken care of.

It is a CPO. Porsche inspected the car and I purchased the extended CPO warranty. I have a lot of friends there so it helps..

When I was at the dealer a Porsche had to pass the CPO and the CPO was optional to the buyer

CPO is well worth the money, especially on these water cooled ones

I have had two transmission failures in just over one year (photo proof if requested)... without my CPO I would be footing a bill close to $32,000.00. Get a CPO car the price point diff is negligible when compared to an unexpected failure of a major component.

Do all CPO's cover the same thing or are there different levels of coverage priced accordingly? Does a good CPO negate the need for a PPI? If it passes a CPO inspection and is covered by warranty, why the need for PPI?

Here is a link to a downloadable copy of a Porsche (Cayenne) CPO checklist. The sports cars CPO is pretty close.

When I bought my used 2008 GT2, it came with the Porsche CPO, I would not have purchased this car without it.
