    Consumer Reports Ratings on 911

    I thought the following would be of interest to Rennteam members.

    Consumer Reports, an independent U.S. product testing and product rating organization, just published its ratings on 2006 cars in its April 2006 issue. This year, they included a category for every line that Porsche manufactures, not just for the Boxster.

    And what they said should not be a surprise to the members of the Rennteam site. Here's a brief summary of the results for the Porsche models.

    The Porsche 911 line of autos rated a top rating in owner satisfaction (meaning that 80 percent or more of current owners would buy the car again) and the highest rating regarding depreciation (meaning it would do among the best in terms of holding its value after three years of ownership). There was no rating on reliability, as they apparently had too little data with the 997 model only in its second year.

    The Boxster also had the highest satisfaction rating but the second highest rating for depreciation, meaning that it would not hold its value as well after three years when compared to a 911. There was also no reliability rating for the Boxster.

    The Cayenne had an average satisfaction rating, one notch less than the Boxster and in the middle of the Consumer Reports rating scale. It had the same depreciation rating as the Boxster, one notch above average. But it had the worst reliability rating, well below average.

    They even had a brief writeup on the Cayman S, but obviously could not get any results given that it was just introduced.

    You have to have an additional paid subscription to get access to the results online.

    Thanks Jim48, I believe, having been a subscriber to "CR" for many years, this is the first time in a long time they've even included the 911.

    my oldest daughter grew up listening to me playing the dead in the car when her preferences were the spice girls and back street boys
    around 11 th grade she developed a real appreciation for the dead and the "classics"
    this year she confessed that she thought they were singing..I wish I was a head lice....<g>

    Re: Consumer Reports Ratings on 911

    The 996 had stratospheric owner satisfaction ratings also, double digit percentage points above the rest of the luxury sports car segment.

    We forget this stuff over time, in doing my quick historical stats search on J.D. Power: in 2003 the Porsche 911 and Boxster (no Cayenne yet) were best in the world for dependability. Porsche had the fewest problems per 100 vehicles, edging out Toyota and Honda.

    That is hilarious peecarfan...Kudos- BudWeiser and peecarfan on your taste in music; my good friend from college just named his daughter "Cassidy". We may have unfortunately misplaced a few brain cells somewhere between Alpine Valley, Wisconsin; Red Rocks amphitheatre Colorado and Philly Spectrum between about '85 and '90.

    You made me LOL peecarfan.
    Your daughter may have had the words wrong and still be right!

    And Damian too, good to see some Dead fans here!
    The DVD "Downhill From Here" is great by the way.
