2012 Porsche Cayman Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Porsche's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Porsche tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. 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 Cayman is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Cayman transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Porsche Cayman transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Porsche's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
