Would you buy this 2009 Cayenne with 49k miles?

Hi guys,

 

I've been searching for a 957 over the last few months and I think i finally found the right car. The car is being sold through Shift.com and has a 200 point check. The reports look good, except for the minor cosmetic damages. I followed up with the service centers to see if the car is in good shape and everything checks out. One concern, is the mileage being around 50k. I was told that I should expect to replace the drive shaft over the next few thousand miles. Porsche service quote $2k for labor and parts--does that seem reasonable or would be closer to half of that at an independent service center? Also, this would be my first Porsche. Until now, I've been driving BMWs, so maintenance was covered. What can I expect in maintenance costs for 50k,60k, 70k?.. for you Orange County members, any good recommendations on an independent service center?

 

FWIW, this car seems like a good deal with low mileage and no visible problems--at least to me. The more important question is, would you guys buy this if you were in the market for a 957? Any concerns? 

 

Thanks in advance!

Looks clean enough but I would be looking over the past 8 years of service history and receipts with a fine tooth comb. Although low mileage the components which may become problematic over time could well be the biggest potential cost hindrance for your maintenance and up keep budget. This is certainly a smarter buy than a 955 v8 in my opinion.  Needs a set of rims to fill those arches!

Great looking vehicle! . . . but I gotta agree with lewisweller, bigger rims.

 

A friend bought a very low mileage and well maintained older Boxster 3 years ago and got the 4 year warranty for $2400. Over $10,000 in repairs later, he's happy! Two repairs account for most of the $10k, the radio which had a mysterious fault that resulted in just about the entire audio system being replaced by Porsche, and the transmission which was done by a independent which resulted in a lower bill to the insurance company. I'm a fan of warranties for vehicles with possible high dollar fixes.

 

Good luck!

 

edit: just noticed this, in the first photo it looks as though there might be something hanging below the rear axle area, kinda looks like wires maybe ?? not sure.

      I have a 2009 957 3.6l v6 Cayenne. The battery was dead a few days ago so I replaced it. It now starts up just as it should but when run a diagnostic it says the alternator voltage is high reading 14.72. I’m assuming I need to replace the alternator to remedy this. I can’t find any information about replacing the alternator. Has anyone attempted this? It looks like it might be straightforward  but my concern is whether or not the intake manifold has to be removed in order to get clear access. If anyone has any insight on this I would greatly appreciate it.

      Does anyone have a wiring diagram for the seat on a 2008/957 Cayenne which they can let me have?

      I’m trying to chase a fault where the passenger seat will motor up and down and the backrest will adjust forward and aft, but there is no response from the controls to move the seat unit forwards and backwards, or the four-way lumber support control.
       
      Thanks in anticipation...

      Guys could someone please help...can't believe how difficult it is to get any info on my beautiful 957 cayenne!  So here's hoping right? As you can see in the photo, the right side rear light has got a few dead LEDs in the two top strips... Has anyone tried a repair or got any advice on this? Someone has gotta know about this! In the words of Sam Smith, I know am not the only one

      My front wheel was making a rattling noise for about the last week, and this morning as I drove out of my driveway and turned the wheel, I could hear a loud popping noise coming from my wheel whenever I turned. My best guess is that I drove over a pothole and the control arm / bushing moved out of place. Would this be covered under the OE warranty? Or should I take it to a mechanic?
