A 911 On Steroids by Frank on 12/02/2009. Trim: 2008 Porsche Cayenne S, Owned 1 year.

Pros: Power, handling, seating comfort, not too big, 7700lb.towing capacity, gas milage 17.2 overall with 21-22 highway @ 65-70MPH
Cons: Expensive Porsche service, but no more so than BMW, Mercedes & the other hi end brands. I did not get the suspension option and the ride is harsh on rough roads at low speeds. No factory bluetooth or ipod plug in 2008 and the aftermarket ones installed by the dealer are only fair at best.
Overall review: The best mid size SUV by far.I have had it for just over two years with 30K miles with no problems since new. It is my daily driver as well as a tow vehicle for a 24' enclosed car trailer used to haul my 911turbo to Porsche Club DE events. This is a hands down better all purpose mid size truck, with a towing capacity of a larger SUV than any similar premium brand has to offer.
