Hi guys

Am planning to pick up a used cayenne 2006 done about 40,000kms here in India.

The roads here are bad so the cars are usually hit up bad.

I test drove it and being not a very technical person I had some queries:

1) when i pull the handbrake release the light does not go off, then I had to manually pull the handbrake out and then the light disappeared...is it an easy fix or a major issue?

2) there is a yellow light on which shows an exclamation mark which constantly remains on?? What does that mean?

3) The gear shift seemed a little lethargic....and a bit jerky?? Is that normal in a 2006 model??

What other things should I look for in a used cayenne? as in engine, suspension etc.

The interiors were dirty, need cleaning, is it easy to clean up leathers and dashboard.....we dont have professional companies here doing it so what is the best way to clean it.

the driver seat would not go completely back.is it an easy fix?

thanks a ton in advance.

Hi wirkdoc,

1. There is some shock spring which help to put beck handbrake pedal, its probably gone bad, so it has to be changed with new one, which is really cheap.

2. This one tels you that is something wrong with PSM (porsche stability management). I could be lot of things, and you will not know that until you won't read fallout codes.

3.Most common problem in Cayennes is transmission valve body. This one causes rough shifting when is bad.

But this is just guessing. You must connect car to diagnostic and see what is going on.

I think, that Cayennes are good and reliable car, but only if it's maintained right, If not you could mayor problems. So I hope it has know service history.

Which engine it is?

Does it have air suspension?

I don't know much about these engines in Cayenne, for my taste, is underpowered.

Before gearshift lever you have buttons for air suspension adjustment, so if don't have those buttons, then don' have air suspension.

Look at pictures and you'll see.
