    Cayenne S Hybrid reliability ?

    Wife will have our child on the next days and I was thinking on making a surprise! The day she arrives from Hospital with our baby she would open the garage and the beauty would be inside, a used Cayenne S Hybrid. My question is this, is this car reliable? As I´m buying used, I´m afraid of having problems with regenerator system or hybrid system in general!! Any feedback from you experts would be appreciated.

    A good friend had a Hybrid S for 3 years and 60.000km. Absolute no trouble. Best car he ever owned, better than his former Cayenne S (his opinion)

    Thanks Smiley

    I´ve search on the net and couldn´t find any problematic reliability problems related to this model, seems like Porsche made a good job having in mind it´s a new tech. On Cayenne model range this might be the least interesting, it has a 380Hp V6 supercharge instead of the V8 from the S, it consumes more than diesel engine and few less than petrol V8. Anyway for my wife this car will only make round 3000 to 4000Km a year and most in the city , we live 6 months here and another 6 months on another country and having 4 cars here the kilometers made are spread thru all. Have seen one Hybrid this week with 21" wheels air suspension and some other good options, might pull the trigger.

    ... few less than petrol V8...

    His fuel save was at least 4l/100km while driving in the city. Most of the time even more (6l). Even if money is no problem you don't have to visit the fuel station that often

    Smiley Didn´t know you could save that much in city driving, that´s good news, thanks. I made a short test drive and it made on my hands 13L /100km but I was on the highway and put the engine to test so not the best way to save fuel. Dealer told me  he has done 8L /100Km with a very soft driving but I thougt it was dealer BS, seems it can be possible.

    I can do 8.x l/100km with my V8 Cayenne S. Highway 100-130 km/h over a distance of 100 km. Soft and anticipated driving of course.

    Re: Cayenne S Hybrid reliability ?

    Hybrid technology doesn't save much on highway but saves some in stop and go for city driving.

    Personally I think buying a Cayenne hybrid is an aberration. You are buying a Porsche SUV because it is a bit more sporty than the rest but then tack on heavy and redundant technology with a smaller engine to save a little bit of fuel. And it is more expensive to buy.

    Wow...I never got under 12 l / 100 km, no matter how moderate my driving was in my 958 GTS. Usually the consumption was more in the 16 l / 100 km range or more.

    Re: Cayenne S Hybrid reliability ?

    Here´s a brief report after some weeks with the Hybrid. Fuel consumption is not that great, engine is making 14,5 L/100 without any excess, I thought it was more economical. The V6 engine doesn´t have character, it sounds like any other ordinary V6. 

    Power is good enough for the use we give, nothing really special. You only have 380hp available at full throttle when the electric engine kicks in together with petrol, apart from that you have 330hp and at high revs. You need to have an egg between your foot and throttle in order to have the electric engine kick in,  if you press to hard the throttle, petrol engine kicks in, but you almost don´t feel it, it´s really a very, very smooth passage from electric to petrol, very nice job from Porsche here. The cruise mode is nice and you can roll at 80/100kph on electric mode, but again, with an egg under the foot. In the beginning it was almost stressing driving the thing trying to have it in electric mode most time possible, then I gave up and started to drive like any other car. In parking lots it´s always in Celtic mode and on traffic jam too, that´s where you really feel the difference in consumption. Brakes are very powerful for a SUV, it stops in no time, my wife loves it.

    Car came with some nice options that I was not used to like keyless and ventilated seats, after having it , you really miss it on other cars. The air suspension is a must on these models, the drive is very comfortable having in mind car came with 21" wheels. Better ride than my BMW X6 4.0D. The stalks behind the steering wheel to operate the blinkers etc  have a lousy plastic feel to it than you don´t find even on a Fiat Punto, not proper for a car from this segment, even my wife notice it. The interior is dark brown and looks great. Driving position was hard to find at beginning, only several weeks after I was able to feel comfortable and more "in" the seat than "on" the seat. The marriage between tiptronic box and engine is good, it operates in a smooth and relaxed way. Buttons on the steering to operate theTiptronic are awful, so much better to have paddles, Porsche should really give up this system. 

    Short comparo with my X6 I would say the build quality on Porsche is much better in all aspects. Materials, fit and finish, etc.Overall design in and out much better on Porsche too.. Autobox is better and faster on X6, the Tiptronic seems from the 90 compared with the X6. Driving position is also better on X6, steering feel is good in both models and very direct in both even more on X6 which I like. The torque on X6 is superior which makes it pleasant to use in city driving, but V6 from Porsche has good torque too and after 4000rpm where the X6 is dieing , Porsche is becoming alive. Highway speeds both are very stable, but I feel safer in Porsche, much more silent and quite inside, better for long trips.Overall this Porsche is a better product than X6 no doubt about it. The BMW as some unacceptable build quality bugs that I post on the following pics. Mine has only 80.000 kms it´s one of my daily drive and seems to be getting old faster than expected, I  treat him well believe me.

    Door handle from passenger side if falling apart, to the point of letting your hands in a mess each time you put the hands there. It´s melting plastic Smiley

    Peeled pastic on the steering wheel, Smiley

    I´m 1,92mts with 90Kgs but still, it´s not acceptable to have driver seat in this state with only 80k.

    But most important is happy wife driving the new beauty Smiley Smiley

    Just one last remarque. I don´t like black wheels, was thinking on painting in carbon color like this one, and keep the silver ring. What do you guys think? 

    Or even Silver !!! Smiley
