    Remember Introduction? LOTS of Problems. Now?

    Many of us were around in 2005 when the 997 came out. There were lots of nagging and dismaying problems. Some were "cRaZy" like polishing headlights resulting in system faults.

    Remember those _birth_ pains? Awwww..., how cute..., glad it's over but they weren't so bad, now were they?

    How about recently? According to the number of reports/complaints here in Rennteam there seems to be very few problems with these cars!

    Except for the pesky but easy-to-get-fixed RMS, do you think has Porsche learned to build a bulletproof car?

    Have we had any typical problems just around the 5, 20, or 40k mark on the odometer?

    Do you think repair costs after warranty will be a cakewalk?

    Or do you think because of the extreme sophistication of these cars, seven to ten years out will begin be a breakdown/maintenance nightmare of biblical proportions?


    Re: Remember Introduction? LOTS of Problems. Now?

    Interesting post I remember stories about people polishing their bonnets with a microfibre cloth and that would result in a control module failure of some sort!

    I have to say that, no matter how much research and development a car manufacturer does before launch, there will always be issues that need to be ironed out. As such, it makes a lot of sense to wait for a couple of years after a car is launched in order to get a car that will offer a much higher chance of trouble-free motoring. That's what I did and it has proved to be a wise move so far.

    Re: Remember Introduction? LOTS of Problems. Now?

    I still have a persistant over-revving problem on my tiptronic C2S. Every time I take it to the garage they say its fine, which is BS... so im waiting for the first 10k checkup to see whats what.
