Hi,

I just bought a used 04 Cayenne S. When I start it and change it to D from P....it goes to D2. Is that normal? Shouldn't it go in D1? If i use the tiptronic "-" it goes to M1 but if its in automatic mode it always starts in D2. I didn't pay attention to it until yesterday. Did I get ripped off? Any response/help is appreciated.

It will also do it if you are on an incline. I always manually switch it to M2 when rolling down the driveway.

As others have stated it is normal. Also note the transmission will switch to D1 if you drive under 5mph for a few seconds after a standing start at D2.

Congratulations on your Cayenne S.

It will also start in D1 if you turn off PSM. Not normally recommended that you do that of course!
