Mein Auto: '09 Cayenne "S"
Amazing! There must have been something wrong with the GTS. 4k before it started to move up the waldo grade (that's the long hill before you get to the tunnel going south on the 101 toward SF)? Never had that happen to any car I have driven up that hill. My old Tahoe stormed up that thing without breaking a sweat and the Cayenne V6 I drove up there (thanks Sonnen!) handled it just fine with no gear hunting. I wanted to try the Cayenne diesel but they were not handing those out for test drives then. I was impressed with the V6 though, had more oooomph than I remembered from the old series engine. Probably the 8 speed box.
