    Very interesting!

    "For model-year 2004, Porsche's Cayenne SUV had below-average reliability ratings for its electrical system, brakes, power equipment and body hardware. Nonetheless, the Cayenne is still luxurious and incredibly powerful."

    One of the reasons I traded in my Cayenne turbo...luckily good dealer support made it tolerable. It sure ain't no toyota.

    Re: Unreliable Luxury Cars.... Forbes Post

    Notice how all the car manufacturers are either European or American, whats up with that?

    Re: Unreliable Luxury Cars.... Forbes Post

    the japanese manufacturers have very strict quality control policy, i mean when someone says the word "reliable" people will immediately think Toyota.

    thanks for the link jenna, very interesting indeed!

    Re: Unreliable Luxury Cars.... Forbes Post

    Thats why my daily driver is a Toyota Tundra DC, great truck.

    Re: Unreliable Luxury Cars.... Forbes Post

    Very Interesting indeed Jenna...

    Made me glad to let go of my 05 530i.

    Its funny though that a 27k Freelander and 27k Saab are luxury cars???

    Re: Unreliable Luxury Cars.... Forbes Post

    I had a 2003 Cayenne Turbo. It had power, but also plenty of problems that the dealer could not fix. It never had to be towed, or anything like that, but for 90K everything should work. For example, keyless entry only worked properly for about six months, but it is a very expensive option.

    I was very happy to turn the Cayenne in at the end of the lease, and I did not even consider leasing another one. I do love my 997, but I never felt that way about the Cayenne because of all the gremlins.

    Re: Unreliable Luxury Cars.... Forbes Post

    Here are some pictures my 356S from the recent Gulf Coast Holiday in Boerne, TX. I was lucky to win my class in the Peoples Choice Concours. Of course, there were only six of us.



    Absolutely the nicest car at the Holiday was a 356 twin-cam Carrera restored by Bill Jones in San Antonio. It won best overall in the concours out of about 100 cars total.



    There are more pictures from the 2005 Gulf Coast Holiday at http://www.356.cc/

    Loved the pictures of the 356. I just read the article, boy I am glad that I bought an Audi A8 1 1/2 years ago instead of BMW, Mercedes or Porsche Cayenne. I have not had the first problem with my car. I would reccommend it to anyone. My 997 should be here in October. I can't wait.
