    My car

    I have wanted to love this car as I am a keen Porsche owner. Sure, it does look stunning and turns heads, mostly because I'm 25, but the running costs have been insane. I'm thinking I would save myself some cash and get a Ferrari!.

    Last month was the 40,000-mile service - that was £3500 for new brakes etc. The following month, having some bulbs changed, they found a coolant leak in the engine. Out came the engine and gearbox and one month later I'm down £4000.

    My partner loves the car for the food shopping and picking up the girls for lunch, but for pound-for-pound distance, it's cheaper to run a jet! I have to say I wish I had bought a Range Rover Sport.

    My car

    I bought my Cayenne Turbo nearly new from Porsche Silverstone and it is now three years old and I am quite frankly at the end of my tether.

    The tyres need to be replaced every six months, not one, not two but all four tyres every six months and I do very low mileage!

    I have had continued faults with the air suspension and the engine management system has had to be completely replaced. Only after an argument with Porsche UK was this work carried out under warranty!

    I have keyless go that more often than not does not work and it also eats nearly as much engine oil as it does petrol.

    I would advise anyone to seriously think about your costs before purchasing Porsche's money maker. I have been lucky enough to have had BMWs, Mercedes and Astons previously and this car is the worst I've had. Even worse than my DB7!

    My car

    I recently bought a Cayenne and shipped it over to East Africa (Ethiopia) for some serious off-road driving. So far this car has been better than I expected and made my job (Road Contractor) very enjoyable.

    My car

    After having a Cayenne S for a satisfying and trouble free 3 years,I took delivery of the new facelift 4.8 Turbo start of april,already clocked up 3,000 miles and am very pleased with it,the new larger engine making it even smoother and faster! It must be the best handling,reliable,spacious and fastest 4x4. What more can be said.
