You're cluttering up the thread. This has nothing to do with 944/951/968's.

The local dealership service manager tells me they replace and repair the coolant pipes for $2,000. When I told him about collateral damages as high as $9,000, his remark was telling, "That's when they overheat them!"

Always blame the patient.

I informed him of the starter and transmission seals being destroyed by the leaking coolant and cited the Dec issue of excellence.

While they've seen many coolant pipe repairs on CayenneS's (and this is cold weather), they've not seen this problem on Toureg's. In this the VW is superior.

That is BS... mine never overheated and I shut down the motor within 60 seconds of the pipe failure.

http://www.6speedonline.com/forums/c...d-cayenne.html

I also had the coolant system pressure checked by my dealer in the early summer to just see if it was okay. No warning, and they failed! Also, my dealer said it was common for the starter to eventually fail due to the coolant pouring over it. They recommend starter replacement when the coolant pipes fail. The transmission seals are not as common to fail but there are instances of it if you search the forums.

This is clearly a design defect from Porsche... has nothing to do with us owners!

By the way, I did trade in my Cayenne for a 2010 Touareg TDI... loving it so far!

Class action lawsuits may be brought in federal court if the claim arises under federal law, or if the claim falls under 28 USCA 1332 (d). Under 1332 (d) (2) the federal district courts have original jurisdiction over any civil action where the amount in controversy exceeds $5,000,000 and either 1. any member of a class of plaintiffs is a citizen of a State different from any defendant; 2. any member of a class of plaintiffs is a foreign state or a citizen or subject of a foreign state and any defendant is a citizen of a State; or 3. any member of a class of plaintiffs is a citizen of a State and any defendant is a foreign state or a citizen or subject of a foreign state.[1] Nationwide plaintiff classes are possible, but such suits must have a commonality of issues across state lines. This may be difficult if the civil law in the various states lack significant commonalities. Large class actions brought in federal court frequently are consolidated for pre-trial purposes through the device of multidistrict litigation (MDL).[citation needed] It is also possible to bring class action lawsuits under state law, and in some cases the court may extend its jurisdiction to all the members of the class, including out of state (or even internationally) as the key element is the jurisdiction that the court has over the defendant.

The procedure for filing a class action is to file suit with one or several named plaintiffs on behalf of a proposed class. The proposed class must consist of a group of individuals or business entities that have suffered a common injury or injuries. Typically these cases result from an action on the part of a business or a particular product defect or policy that applied to all proposed class members in a typical manner. After the complaint is filed, the plaintiff must file a motion to have the class certified. In some cases class certification may require discovery in order to determine its size and if the proposed class meets the standard for class certification.
Upon the motion to certify the class, the defendants may object to whether the issues are appropriately handled as a class action, to whether the named plaintiffs are sufficiently representative of the class, and to their relationship with the law firm or firms handling the case. The court will also examine the ability of the firm to prosecute the claim for the plaintiffs, and their resources for dealing with class actions.

I think I've been part of 10 or more "classes" in recent history, and the settlements were always structured to the benefit of the defendant.

So I predict PCNA offers a settlement of $2,500 for every one of us... but only valid toward a new 2011 Cayenne purchase. Or toward your next service at a P-Dealer. Plus a free set of coils in a woodgrain/brushed alumnium collector's box.

That said...I'm in for the ride.

I have not yet experienced this fun on my Cayenne and would prefer a proactive approach from Porsche. Count me in.

$200 discount - not bad.

But did they rupture on the drive to Buffalo, or once you made it?
