2006 Porsche Cayenne Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Porsche? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Porsche Cayenne? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Cayenne is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Cayenne's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2006 Cayenne’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Porsche. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
