Just bought one
Source: Cars.com

..."I just bought a Cayenne S 2011 and I have been driving it for 3 weeks.
Overall, I am very happy with it. The performance and handling is amazing.
It feels like you are driving a high performance sedan.
It is tight on corners too. The interior is top notch and the driver cockpit is well designed.
My favorite is the small GPS display in front of you, which can be used to view other current settings and status such as tire pressure, estimated miles based on available gas, etc.
I spent $15K in options which included 20" RS Spyder wheels, Bose speakers, LCA, PCM/GPS (part...

Complete Surprise
Source: Cars.com

...It has incredible power with 380 horsepower, but I'm still getting almost 20 mpg in the city and I do not drive slow at all. The fact that the Porsche Cayenne Hybrid and the Panamera Hybrid share the same powertrain means that it definitely marvelous. The styling is unique, inside and out. I always get complements when I drive my car. I am actually excited everytime I have to go somewhere. I do not plan on giving this car up anytime soon. If you are in the market for a Cayenne, check this car out first because it definitely is worth the money, and the Cayenne is looking quite cheap these...

Cayenne Rocks!

...I bought my 2006 CPO in 2010 and love it. It has been incredibly reliable and it drives like a sports sedan.
It is the perfect size-plenty of room but I don't feel like I'm driving a bus. It is incredibly responsive, great acceleration and power and true 4wd...

not happy with car
Source: Cars.com

...The light comes on that the car is at the oil minimum. I have 6000 miles on the car and I have had to put oil in around 6 times already. It is a pain to stop and find the synthetic oil that it needs. I have gone to porsche and they said it is normal to burn that amount of oil. I have never owned a car (range rover , lexus and honda etc) that i had to constantly fill with oil. I believe that the new cayenne's and panamera's have this problem because of the redesigned sealed engines. I never would have leased this car if i knew this information."...

Cayennes are awesome.
Source: Cars.com

..."This is my 2nd Cayenne and I love it. I have put over 74K miles in my first one and so far 73K miles in this one.
The vehicle has been nothing but awesome. I have it washed every week and waxed every 4 months.
Take it to the dealer for all scheduled and maintenance and it will run practically forever.
Car is over 6 years old now and it drives, look and feels like new. My next vehicle will be another Cayenne!"...

Regret purchasing a Cayenne S 2011
Source: Cars.com

...Also, my Cayene S has no basic options. I owned a Cayenne 2008 and that had all the options i wasn't looking for. The engine noise is annoying to listen to. I asked the service dept. but they said it was normal. But the toggle noise when you stop the car is a pain. Also, I intstalled heated seats and there was a problem with it the day i picked up the car. How unprofessional is that!!!! It was at the shop for 6 days and had to bring it back again. PLUS it was an outside job which they had to drive the car some place else and they used over 50 miles on my car and used all the gas. There goes...

2010 Cayenne
Source: Cars.com

..."Nice truck that demands attention. Base model has less hp than the others and can be sluggish on hills and off the gate,
but when engaged in the Sport mode, it increases the output with little effect on the miles per gallon.
It's quite roomy and can fit five adults easily. Gas is a little stingy, but I have found I can average just over 23mpg on the highway.
The drive is fantastic, its smooth and handles like a car, which could be attributed to the AWD.
Overall a great truck which many luxury features to include heated seats, back up camera, park assist and XM radio."...

Quality, Practical And A Good Drive To Boot
Source: CarGurus

...the car had 20 inch wheels with 275 width tyres (why do they mix imperial and metric on tyre sizing) which may have contributed. handling was as expected very good for a big car with no lack of grip and very good body control in the sport and normal setting. Brakes must have been fine because i didnt think they felt bad in any way but i cant say i really pushed them with full on braking efforts It felt reasonably quick. i have a carrera s which feels tighter and quicker but thats probably no surprise. overall as a family car that can seat 5 and luggage and be a work horse as well as enjoyable...

2004 Cayenne S

..."I have an '04 with over 120,000 miles on it. It is the best SUV I have ever driven for comfort and ride.
The only major repair so far has been the water pump. The driver seat is second to none in comfort.I am a bit biased perhaps as my other car is a 911 Carerra."...

With a diesel option and a softer silhouette, the 2011 Audi Q7 does its part to tame the SUV bad-boy image.
 
2011 BMW X5
The 2011 BMW X5 offers impressive handling and features, but lacks the styling and interior that makes competitors pop, while the X5 M offers nearly sports car levels of performance with all the utility of a standard X5.
