What a great forum!
I’m a newbie looking for some advice on a 2013 Cayenne GTS.
Pros: V8, exhaust sound, lots of space for my three kids in the back; great combo of sport and versatility. A beautiful car to drive.
Cons: apparent engine lag down low (I’m used to turbos). I had my foot to the floor a couple of times with a noticeable delay in power…could also be my driving. There does not seem to be any exhaust noise when you change down gears in manual mode when using paddles??? No cracks, no over-run noise, no bangs no nothing-is this right?
There is very little to fault on this car but before I look at buying I’d love your feedback on the above.
Also given this is an Aussie site could anyone with a similar model advise on expected major service costs for a model with 130K kms on it? I have found a model with approx. 130K on the clock and was just wondering if their price is low enough given the costs that may be around the corner for me. Also, given I’ll put 80- 100K on it over a 5 year lease how terrible (in the scheme of things) will my resale be with 250K approx. on it? Expecting the worst here.
