    Minor quality problems on my car

    I drive a 997S cab 04/05.
    The leather covering the shifter must be replaced since it comes loose from the knob.
    I have windnoise at the drivers sidewindow at the topend off the window (door needs adjustment)
    And the leather ond the backrest of the rear seat came loose too, at the point where the leaver, to make the rear seats come down, is fixed.
    The dealer said, no prob everything will be arranged cfr the warranty...
    Still i believe a 100k Euro car can't afford to have these quality gremlins...

    Re: Minor quality problems on my car

    Sorry to hear you're having those issues.

    On the wind noise...when I did first test drive on my car, there was a wind noise that eventually proved to be 'no masking tape/grommet around the wire passing thru to the exterior driver's mirror'. They had adjusted the window, a bunch of other stuff to no avail. Have them check it. When I toured the factory last January, I saw the exact spot on the line in the door assembly where the error occured on my car. Good luck.

    Re: Minor quality problems on my car

    Maybe the leather problem was from a particular leather component supplier who were having a bad production run. It then can be seen as one quality problem not two.

    So you really have only one other problem: the wind noise. Might be a simple adjustment. I know the sunroof can be "re-taught" to end up in the proper position. Perhaps that's all your window needs, to be "re-taught?"

    My almost us$100K car had a non-working PCM which I discovered on the way home from dealer on delivery day. You just have to tolerate stuff like this.

    I wonder what kind and how many quality and workmanship complaints the Ferrari and Aston Martin boards have?


    Re: Minor quality problems on my car

    Ok, i recognise that these are minor problems.
    Concerning the backseat i presume the leather was cut a little too small, it's a case of millimeters.
    The shifter... i thinck the dealer has made a mistake there. When the car was pretty new, 600km, they had to adjust the shifter since i couldn't choose the rear gang. I thinck they must have broken the clipse to fix the leather cover to the shifterknob then.

    Re: Minor quality problems on my car

    Very sorry to hear of these problems beltar. Please just get them fixed under warranty.

    I know that there are bound to be some problems with some of the new cars made but it's difficult to accept that whether our experience of a new Porsche is a trouble-free one depends so much upon luck. For that kind of money, luck shouldn't be involved.

    I'm starting to think, like real estate, Porsches are worth whatever people are willing to pay for them.

    Not necessarily overpriced, but in demand. So therefore it is a special car.

    Bothers me that my car has come with some problems too, but the car is "special" so you can't think about it like a dependable, reliable and trouble-free Honda or Toyota.

    I agree that a car that costs this much money shouldn't have problems but cars are made by man and man is not perfect. I feel your pain
