I purchased a CPO Cayenne S 2012 at 15k miles. It just reached around 24k miles.  I have changed the oil and oil filter,  air filter, cabin filter (very dusty/hot where I am), balanced and rotated tires. 

 

Should I also change the fuel filter and brake fluid?  Anything else I should do at 20k-30k miles?  Serpentine belt?    

 

I am located overseas (exported my vehicle from dealer in USA) in an area where getting service is difficult, so I want to error on the side of caution as far as preventative maintenance.  Our fuel is very poor quality.  However,  vehicle is running perfectly, no problems.

 

Thank you.

:welcome: 

 

The fuel filter is inside the fuel tank and should not need to be changed in normal operation.

Brake fluid should be tested (for moisture content) and changed every two years.

 Loren, thank you.  How often does one need to change the serpentine belt? 

 

Sorry, I meant to add that is too.

It should be checked at least yearly cracks or wear - replace it at signs of either.

Loren, thank you.  If you were living in a remote area, how often would you replace the belt, regardless of cracking?  I suppose I'm asking if I should be replacing it every 20k-30k regardless of cracking, as preventative maintenance.

Porsche maintenance books says:

"Check drive belt at 40,000 mls, but no later than every 4 years -- replace any drive belt no later than 60,000 mls or 6 years"

I do not see this listed, are you saying this is in the manual that came with the Cayenne? Mine says to just check it every 40k. If it needs replaced at 60k then I am at my mileage limit, yet the belt literally looks brand new with no signs of wear, cracking or hazing. Edited by 958S

And it probably will continue to look "brand new", right up until it leaves you stranded at midnight in the rain.  Change it, they are not that expensive.
