    Also got car with three year warranty as the previous owner bought 3 year warranty. Also previous owner bought $3.5k Pirelli tires. For an oil change it cost around 400$ if you take it to Porsche factory. For me, I call one of the worker at the Porsche factory to come to my house for changing the oil for my car. I pay around 100$.

    I recommend getting a GTS if you're into speed and fun. Although all models of the Panamera are great. In my opinion, it's a completely different vehicle to drive compared to your BMW.

    You should only buy one if you do research. Maintenance is expensive. It’s funny to see people only bought one to flex and when it comes to maintenance they freak out. If you complain about price then you should’ve never bought a Porsche. It’s a nice vehicle don’t get me wrong but again it’s very pricey.

    Loved this video, have watched it several times. I bought a 2010 S model 1 1/2 years ago and It has been the a fabulous purchase. Most enjoyable car I have ever owned. Maintenance can be steep, but you have to find a local independent that works on Porsche's. Will save you 30-40%. Like any car though, change your fluids on time, brakes, tires and fix something when it goes so things don't pile up. My car runs better now than when I bought because of a little tender loving and care.

    I had my share of German cars in the 1990s. Horrible quality control. Things broke that should never have broken(accelerator pedal linkage, rear hatch latch on a 928, HVAC on any German car), so I switched to Lexus and Acura products and never looked back. The Germans forget about the little things that make ownership pleasurable.

    Great video! I am considering buying one but am finding one thing bewildering … the number of prior owners these cars all seem to have. I saw a 2012 with only 24K miles and a clean Carfax that had 7 prior owners! A number of them have had a minimum of 2-4 owners in 40K miles. On a normal car, this says they are a maintenance nightmare and the car has been shuffled from one owner to another when the owner has had his fill of the bill. Is this a good assumption or do people just buy these as toys, drive them a year and move on to something else?

    Great video. Thanks. I have the Turbo V8 model. I love it. There are a few issues I would like to add to your review. Anyone about to purchase a Panamera should understand that no matter how cheap you get one, if you can't afford the maintenance...Don't do it. A complete brake job at the dealer is over $3k, Plus there's an extra step called (Emergency Brake Adjustment) it can't be done by an ordinary mechanic shop. The dealer has to do it for $350. The Porches labeled battery cost $450. Same battery is $199 at Autozone. Just be sure to use a memory saver when changing the battery. My cam adjusters blew before the recall. CarShield denied the legitimate claim. They refused to fix it. That cost me $4k to repair. I cancelled them immediately. Thank God the part was recalled about a month later. So, the dealer reimbursed me $3k. A simple set of wipers cost $100 at the dealer but you can actually find better ones at Wal-Mart for less than $15 each. Rear window wiper does not come standard. Oil change $350 but with a Durametric scanner ($300) you can do it yourself forever for $70 or less and reset the computer yourself. A thermostat sensor only cost $39 but cost $1000 to install it. CarShield denied that claim too. 0ne spare key cost $450, headlight $1k, rear window replacement $3k. Here's the big one... A blown turbo engine cost $60k to replace. Hope that never happens. But if you can do your own maintenance, you can do it 2-to-10x cheaper. Factory Extended warranty is definitely worth it if you can afford it. Those aftermarket warranty companies like Car-Shield are rip-offs and are especially useless on a Porsche. I know this from personal experience. Regular mechanic shops are afraid to work on a Porsche. They can't wait to work your car...until they find out what kind it is. Most of them will simply say "Sorry we don't work on Porsche." They wouldn't even change the spark plug and coil pack on mine. I did it myself in less than 15 minutes. Launch control is great but you must be sure you even have launch control in the first place. It doesn't come standard. It requires you to floor the brake and the gas pedal at the same time then quickly release the brake to blast off. If you do this without the factory launch control software you will eventually destroy your both of your clutches. Remember the PDK transmission is basically a semi-automatic transmission with 2 clutches, 2 drive shafts and 2 gear boxes. PDK translates to "Porsche Double Klutch" in english can cost nearly $14k to rebuild. An alignment ""MUST"" be done at the dealer. Other shops will try to align it but they will fail. The alignment has to consider 3 different ride heights (not just the normal one) and there's no normal camber adjustment. You have to slide the entire engine sub-frame for that. Your local alignment shop won't do it but they will gladly charge you for a incomplete job. There are also two other available engines you didn't mention the Turbo-Diesel and the Supercharged V6. The regular Turbo model has 500 hp but Turbo S model has 550 hp and bigger turbos. There's also an "Executive" extended wheel-base model that adds almost 8 inches of extra leg room for the back passengers and a refrigerator in the console between the rear seats. The DVD player only plays sound from DVD (no video). You have to purchase the rear headrest monitors for video or add a aftermarket bypass hack for video through the head unit. Without a bypass, only the rear passengers can see video. Overall, it is a great car. Fun to drive and I haven't lost a race against any 4-door car. Ever! People driving Comaro's and Mustangs intentionally take off slow from red lights. They dont want me to think they're trying to race. But whenever I'm in my big stupid Yukon they take off fast as hell. There's only 3 things I don't like. All 3 are trivial. 1) There's no "lock/unlock" buttons on the doors. They're located next to the shifter. So if you're standing outside you have to reach across the seats to unlock the doors. 2) the defrost only has one speed "full-blast" which is too loud to leave on. That's really annoying. 3) While you can open the trunk from the driver's seat, you cant close it from the driver's seat. The trunk closer button is located on the trunk. So, you have to get out and go to the back to press the close button. I really been considering getting a redundant trunk closer button added to the dash. Would I buy another one? Yes! Without hesitation.

    @David Chavez No sir. I have never driven an Audi and I dont know much about the brand. But you're kinda asking the wrong guy. I'm totally biased! I would never choose a Audi over a Porsche Panamera Turbo. That being said, Ironmans Audi is an exception to the rule. His Audi is the only one I ever truely liked and it's too small to be a primary ride (it won't seat 4). As a 2 seater would have to be a second car and I couldn't afford it as a second car. On second thought, I did like the Audi A8 6.0 W12 that Frank Martin drove in the Transporter 3 but I still would rather have a 2021 Porsche Panamera Turbo Hybrid Extended Wheelbase Executive Edition.

    @CACASMURF CACASMURF Man please dont wake that guy up out of cryosleep! You just preaching to the choir. At first he said the swaps dont happen, then he said just name one place that does it? You answered. Great answer of course. Thank you for that information. Now he's bitchin about cost. He has nothing constructive to say. Predictably, he'll just find something else to bitch about. You will never be right! and he will never be wrong! So please just let him make a couple of insults and wisecracks then ignore him and let him go back to sleep. Otherwise you will be arguing over trivial crap into infinite perpetuity.

    @David Chavez I totally understand. That's actually the entire point I was making when I first commented on this video. Don't buy a Porsche Panamera unless you understand and are able to deal with the Maintenance. Its a very reliable car for the most part but when it does need service it's hard to find a reasonable mechanic that knows what he's doing. And even if you do find one, they will charge you more simply because they figure you should pay more because of the name (Even though there's no difference in the part to justify the cost) for example Porsche charges $800 for a single brake rotor but you can get the exact same one from Autozone for $250. They treat Porsche owners like they're stupid with money and just want someone to take it from you. You constantly have to make them understand you are not going to be taken advantage of simply because you own a Porsche. This happens because rich people don't care what it cost. They'll willingly pay the sucker price for everything and average people get grouped up with them thinking we'll do the same.

    Really appreciate your tip. Is the excessive oil consumption an issue with the car or is it supposed to be that way considering its V8 Turbo.

  110. Useful Vids

    Useful Vids2 שנים לפני

    If the car has the recall done for the engine bolts, and also has all of the service records, that it should be good. If you can get parts in your country, then I don't think you have much to worry about.

    Mech Eng The PDK holds up really well and provides a much sportier feel than a standard automatic transmission. Engines are all mostly reliable, especially the face-lift (14-16) v6 models and the GTS.

    @Steven jr Also make sure to have the dealer apply 3m paint protection or whatever brand so it always looks clean, easy to clean, and protect the paint from chips (to a degree of course). The only issue I would say is the infotainment system is a little outdated but I am driver and focus on driving. As long as I can play my tunes I am good, don't need all that other shit. Outside of that perfect car IMO. Oh yeah I live in WA too and drive in snow with no issues!

    @Steven jr Yep got a 2013 GTS in 2015. Absolutely no problems whatsoever. Car is great, good size but when driving it feels like a coupe especially driving hard. Pretty amazing a car this size handles so well and 3.8 0-60 is no joke. EVERYONE love this thing around town and passengers have no complaints. If you get a GTS, you can't really do to much to it mod wise BUT, I just got a VR Racing tune which only add 25hp and 16pd of torque but the difference is very noticable and the shifts are MUCH better/smoother in Sport Plus mode (which you should always keep in!). Oh I didn't even mention the exhaust note (GTS)... ALL HEADS TURN.. ITS LOUD AND ANGRY!!!! Get the GTS, it is the perfect balance between a 4s and Turbo IMO.

    How many years do they have on them? People with enough money to buy a new or even two year old Panamera will virtually always have several cars and spread the miles around. It could be there daily driver for work but my guess is they have at least two other cars. Miles or kilometers should be reasonable to low.

    Hello, the V6 in generally doesn't seem to have excess oil consumption. Generally, it's with the v8 models such as the S and Turbo. Owner's of newer 8cyl models seem to complain less about the oil consumption. Please note that some oil consumption is considered normal.

    What are your thoughts on the engine and transmission of the 2015 Panamera S e-Hybrid. I believe it uses a Audi engine. How does it compare to a Porsche PDK?

  141. Useful Vids

    Useful Vids2 שנים לפני

    Hi Suresh, yes that is correct. I prefer the PDK since it feels like a manual transmission that is being shifted by a expert hand extremely fast. It feels more nimble and sporty to me. I also prefer the way it shifts, even though it may not be as smooth as the regular automatic in the S E-Hybrid. I think that if you decide to get that model, you'll love it, and it does deliver great power and good fuel efficiency for large sedan. Being able to drive in electric only mode for up to 20 miles is nice, and you can drive up to 84 mph, which is great for the freeway. I hope this helps.

    And the air suspension compressor is known to have problems under cold weathers (-10 Celsius and below) and causes chassis failure which the compressor would need to be replaced

  143. Hellbent706

    Hellbent7062 שנים לפני

    I have noticed the front air suspension does get a little noisyer in the winter months which drops to only 10 to 25 degree on average here in Alabama. Probably much worst in northern States. Keeping your car parked in home garage helps a lot. It clears up on its own right before spring. I never had a problem with my compressor and never I had to replace a air shock. Thank God! I was told the newer models have addressed that issue with updated air shocks.

    Hellbent706חודש לפני

    @Steven jr I Own a Panamera Turbo and they had to remove the whole transmission just to get to a damn screw. Wtf! I put the car in the shop just to fix a routine coolant leak behind the engine where I can't reach. This is common on older Panamera V8's but generally an easy fix for them. They initially removed the intake manifold to get to the leak but I guess this time that wasn't enough. They decided to removed the transmission without even asking. Maybe that's why it's no charge for the service. My car has been in the shop now for over 2 months. The first month was due to typical BS like waiting for O-rings to show up in the mail. Then they received the wrong parts. You know the routine. But overall, I'm still happy right now because they said there would be no charge for the removal of the transmission. That would have easily cost me another grand. And the loaner car they gave me is a brand new Porsche. We put the first 2k miles on so far. Great loner but I do miss my car. I can't wait to get it back.

  153. Useful Vids

    Useful Vids2 שנים לפני

    Hello, the maintenance costs will really vary, but overall they're not bad. For me, it has been filters and oil changes. If you can DIY, you will save a lot. I wouldn't say it's more than any other car in the Panamera's class. They're very reliable, in my opinion. I wouldn't worry about the bolts, as long as the recall has been completed. Also, it's really only on the early 2010s-2012s. Thanks for watching.

    Hellbent7062 שנים לפני

    I will have to replace my coolant temperature sensor myself. Mine stills works fine right now but the computer says it's been going bad for the last 2 years causing check engine light to come on occasionally. The dealer wants $1000 to replace it. I think the sensor itself is only $38 plus a gasket or something simple. Requires removal of the entire intake manifold because they virtually buried the sensor under it. I do have the tools and confidence do it myself once I can find a clear detailed video of the procedure on ILmines. The one video I seen on ILmines skip procedure steps and thus created too many unknowns.
