Just wanted to bump this thread and hear from any Cayenne owners.
I am in the market for buying my first car. Just for the record i'm very late to the game and not a teen :) as I have lived in big cities with great public transport my whole life and never needed a car, but I now have a 10 month old baby and have moved to a smaller city which makes driving a necessity. Anyway.... a 2nd hand Cayenne looks perfect to me. I have a budget of around $12k as I want to pay in cash and not go down the credit route.
So a few questions about the car (and buying a car in general).
- Is there anything potentially troublesome I should be looking out for specifically when looked at used Cayennes?
- Should I rule out any with excessively high mileage? How high should I max out for a car that is 9-10 years old?
- Are those yearly maintenance costs still about right?
- Should I look at an BMW X5 (or any other luxury SUVs) instead? (i mean for VFM and ongoing costs)
If there are any Cayenne owners on here (especially those with 2004-2006) i'd love to hear your thoughts on the car, both positive and negative!
