Re: Absolutely livid! Porsche Leeds.

Has anyone read the link? To me it reads that if the turbo has pasm it is lower than standard steel suspension.

Re: Back to the Macan fold... park assist not working.

Did you buy privately, or from a dealer? If from a dealer, whether Porsche or not, you have a warranty. If bought privately, yes, you're on your own. I can't help with the OBD checks but someone on here might, otherwise you may have to suck up the cost of diagnostics at an OPC or indie.

Re: rear wheels

It's part of Porsche's DNA and is based on racing chassis dynamics. Wider tyres at the rear give greater traction as well as better handling and cornering ability. It's one of the reasons the Macan is the best handling SUV on the planet.

Re: 2020 GTS - Minor Tech issue

Porsche ‘keyless’ keys switch off when remote from the car thereby preventing remote transmission thefts. This means a keyless protector or Faraday pouch is unnecessary.

Thatcham awarded the Macan their top rating for relay theft security in 2019.

Re: Broken Spring

It’s an industry problem due to reduced spring manufacturing quality. More common in lower temperatures in winter though. Don’t recall an incidence on here although I guess even Porsche isn’t immune from faults originating from a low number of suppliers.

Re: AC sanitisation

Usually the fix for smelly ventilation systems is to run it at full heat for 20 mins or so, on recirc first then fresh air.

The smells come from the ducting carrying air into the cabin due to algae growing in damp spots.

Re: 2020 TS - Minor Tech issue

Has the car’s battery been kept fully charged in the time you’ve had it? A low battery, together with attempted starts, will sometimes erase memory settings. I’d be surprised if the key battery was an issue at this age.
