    Fair enough. BUT part of the fun of owning a Porsche is having problems that make watercooler conversation interesting.

    Yeah I don't want a blown head gasket two days after the warrenty runs out, but we all know that the RMS is a Russian Roulette game (fact of life - can't be changed) we play when we buy a new one. I accepted that.

    I got a feeling that, disregarding the RMS leaks, the car would be deemed very reliable in consumer surveys.







    Re: IS THE NEW 997 & 997S A RELIABLE CAR?

    997 C2S - 9 months old, 3k miles... fuel pump failed... plus point is that the new fuel pump has transformed the car - i.e. original pump must have been faulty since new... Porsche GB had the car for 4 days and ran full tests before returning to me with a full Valet too... so was quite impressed.... also, members support from this board greatly appreciated during the painful 4 days without the car..

    7000 miles so far. At 5200, had the RMS problem. And the plastic housing supporting the rear-view mirror came apart. Other than that, no problems.



    Since last night, the audio for my radio doesn't work anymore. There is absolutely no sound, no matter what the volume switch is set at. It appears that it is muted but I checked the settings and it appears to be ok. But the volume for NAV works fine.

    On the other hand, I don't think I've driven with PSE and the radio off for so long and it's actually quite pleasant.

    Re: IS THE NEW 997 & 997S A RELIABLE CAR?

    I'm sorry bstew and I hope I'm wrong but if anyone expects a Porsche to be more reliable than a Honda (more fun of course) I think they'll be very disappointed.

    Re: IS THE NEW 997 & 997S A RELIABLE CAR?

    I expected [censored] to go wrong left and right. Well, it did. I expected service to be a bit better. But it wasn't. I'm glad in the end, that I didn't have to hurt anyone.
