I knew from day one with the car that this is what it needed, but was unsure until today if anything would get done.
In my last convo with the service advisor a few days ago, engineering pushed back saying some vibration is "normal" in a 4wd Taycan.
Luckily, my service adivsor and the techs...
There is much that goes on inside the walls of Porsche that we don't know about. This could be 100% true for all we know.
In the meantime, I'll keep driving my car, charging at 40A and relying on my 8 year battery warranty. Not losing sleep over this.
The lag before Carplay kicks in is the worst part for me. No reason why it should take so long. Sometimes you have to force it to connect manually, sometimes it just takes forever.
I'm in a loaner Macan for the last week and wireless Carplay is almost instant, and never crashes. I will admit...
1 week at the dealer today. They have acknowledged that my vibration/pulsing from 40-45mph is not normal. Next step is to have "engineering" (they had some acronym I can't remember) do their assessment of what's needed to repair it. More to come...
LOL. Don’t try another CS rep or to escalate to a manager. Don’t call or take a ride to your dealer. Not getting warranty service? Huh? I guess the only way to resolve this is to sell the car and not buy another Porsche.
I had Porsche connect issues when I first bought my car. Got it resolved...
Yep, also wasn't ready to let go initially, but after 6 months of "dealing" with it, I've had enough.
My fear is if it does require a full drive unit replacemnt what the lead time will be and how long I'll be without the car. We shall see.
I went from summer to all season tires recently and the vibration became much less noticeable, but it's still there.
Car goes in Monday, I'm tired of dealing with it and convinced it's not right. I'll provide updates once I have them.
It bothers me that many insist on range as a measure of efficiency for BEVs. We don't measure ICE cars efficiency in range, we use MPG. KWH/100mi, MPGe, KWH/mi, etc are measures of efficiency.
The fuel economy portion of my Taycan's window sticker is below.
Over 6500 miles, my actual...
It's definitely on in PCM settings right?
Mine randomly stopped presenting the handles when I walked up the other day and I found it was unchecked in PCM. After I rechecked it everything works like normal again.
Monticello is members only. I did a Porsche Performance Drive day last fall and drove a Taycan Turbo S, 992 S, Pana GTS and others there. Beautiful facilities.
I live on LI and have been racing for 15+ years - You have NJMP, Lime Rock, Pocono, NYST, all within 3 hours. Palmer, Watkins Glen...
Two weeks and probably 500 miles of driving on the steel brakes. Cant even see the dust on my finger after wiping it, its more road grime than brake dust.
Probably 90% less dust than what you are used to in an ICE Porsche.
Extremely vague blurb. "Porsche has scrapped a number of Taycan vehicles"
How many is a number?? 5, 50, 500?
Something tells me this is nothing more than a hit piece from a Tesla fan boy. These cars have been on the road going on two years now, first time I've heard of this.
More frequent shallow charges are better than less frequent deep charges.
You have an 8 year warranty. If you have an EVSE in your garage, stop overthinking it and plug in nightly so you have the range if needed. There is no proven reason to wait till any % SOC.
I charge to 80% daily, whether...
Good deal. Mine was similar, new 2020 purchased this May, $124k msrp, $107k sale price. 14% off.
Very similar spec but missing a couple little things yours has.
Get all the updates done before delivery and enjoy!
Anything askew with your recent consumption? How does it compare to lifetime consumption or historical from when you took >200 mi trips in the past?
If consumption isn't an issue, clearly something battery related is going on, software or otherwise.
