So i have been shopping a Panamera....and after pulling a number of Carfax's I have noticed some Panamera's, namely 4's, list a service entry with "Thermostat replaced, Water pump replaced, and Intake Manifold gaskets replaced" The cars in question do not have particularly high mileage 30K average.........So wondering if anyone has perspective on these replacements, the reasons why? abnormal? Should this flag an issue? Is this a standard procedure for Intermediate service?

 

Thanks in advance!!

I did not see any TSBs (Technical Service Bulletins) on that subject.

If you are in a very warm or hot climate - that would not be uncommon. (IMHO)

Early cars did have problems with the thermostats, there was a campaign for thermostats and the updated part definitely fixed those issues.  Water pumps on these engines v6 and v8 have been bulletproof, no issues there at all.  I wouldn't put too much fair in those carfax repair records, too much gets lost in translation.  The people doing the data entry on that know about as much about cars as I do about nuclear physics.
