Making the Most from Your Porsche Cayenne Brake Job
The Porsche Cayenne has earned its reputation as reliable car, all while also managing to be sporty, powerful, practical, and fuel efficient, including its SUV version. Sure, it has an expensive price tag upfront, but that is offset by incredibly low maintenance costs overall. Naturally, there are some exceptions to that rule. Since like all Porsches, the Cayenne features disc brakes, brake jobs are going to be somewhat more expensive and require regular maintenance. But its all wheel drive feature means it’s pretty handy in snowy conditions and when you go offroad with the SUV model. These are important features when you consider buying a car.
The Thousand Dollar Price Tag of Carbon Ceramic Brakes
But you do want to watch out for models that have carbon ceramic brakes, which a review in USA Today described as “a special high-performance option that replaces the common steel rotors and metallic pads with special cast rotors that use a proprietary composite, a mixture of resins, fibers and powdered metal.” These will make your Porsche Cayenne brake job considerably more expensive, to the tune of perhaps thousands of dollars.
Bottom line, if you can skip the expensive carbon ceramic brake option, you’ll be better off. Unless you’re planning on taking this baby to the professional races, you just don’t need them, and you certainly don’t need that kind of expense when you schedule your next brake job.
