    Porsche Guarantee: transfer from one country to another?

    Hello everybody.

    I am new to the forum and also a Porsche fan since childhood.

    I live in Venezuela (South America) and my country's Porsche dealer is selling the cars above what I would pay if I were to import the car myself from the USA.

    If I were to buy the car in the USA and bring it to my country, would Porsche Venezuela have to honor the guarantee?

    As far as I know, my dealer is offering a 2 year/20,000 km guarantee which I believe is less than what PCNA is offering.

    Your opinions on this subject will be greatly appreciated, regards;

    Welcome Sebastian!

    That sucks about the dealers... is there only one dealer in the country?

    Re: Porsche Guarantee: transfer from one country to another?

    Thanks tooner;

    good question: yes, there is only one dealer in the country. I would be surprised if there were more than 1,000 P cars in the whole country.

    Re: Porsche Guarantee: transfer from one country to another?

    The warranty is 4 years here. Your local dealer would probably screw you when it came to honoring the warranty if you had a US car. There has to be some way around it. It would probably still be cheaper to buy the car here and have minor things fixed there(at your expense) but for anything major ship it back. That way you could have a vacation in the US and be able to drive your P.

    Re: Porsche Guarantee: transfer from one country to another?

    This is a tough one Sebastian...

    If you can afford to ship it in then maybe you can afford the minor fixes or maintenance on it. For something major? Phew that's a tough one!

    We have 2 Dealers here in India and they offer the same 2 year warranty. They will not give warranty for personal imports of porsche cars bought from outside the country!

    Re: Porsche Guarantee: transfer from one country to another?


    tell you what... Buy the car here. I'll gladly store it for you and when youre here you can use it with a the full 4yr 50 thousand mile warranty!

    Re: Porsche Guarantee: transfer from one country to another?

    Thank you all for your replies.

    tooner, I could not let you make that sacrifice , thanks anyway.

    It seems India follows the same guarantee policy as my country regarding independent imported cars. It would be interesting to hear from European owners who can easily move from country to country inside the union. Can you guys request repairs under guarantee in any country of the EU for a car bought in Europe?

    Re: Porsche Guarantee: transfer from one country to another?

    I asked a similar question to my dealer a few weeks ago. He told me that the Warranty has a World wide Validity. You can take it anywhere in the globe - and they should service it.

    That is my info....
